Video Footage of the Soling Final Denmark versus Germany
by Rachel Nahum on 9 Oct 2000
The Soling Match Racing final between Denmark's Jesper Bank and Germany's Jochen Schuemann was watched by large crowds at the Opera House on 30th September 2000.
The race was a close run contest to the very end where the gold medal was decided on the final run of the final race.
Schuemann lost gold in the last run when he had the ultimate penalty. He waited until the last minute to make his turn hoping that he could keep Bank back far enough. But it didn't work out. The crowd was holding its breath when Denmark's Jesper bank surfed to his second gold medal in that nail biting finish Schuemann got silver.
Final result Denmark 4 Germany 3.

The westerly Levante breeze was expected to blow at about 10 to 11 knots for day three of the regatta, but the long white cloud hanging over the Rock of Gibraltar signified that there might be less. Even with just five or six knots the GC32s were still able to get on the foils as they launched off the start line of the first race.

It was an afternoon of soft southerly breeze blowing from the northern tip of Africa a few miles across the Strait of Gibraltar. The four to six knots of wind made the reaching start more critical than usual, although in the final of the four races held today, the two owner/drivers took very different approaches.
