Whoah heads up! The Kieler Woche (Translation: Kiel Week) Regatta is well under way in scenic Kiel Germany. This 130 year old regatta is host to a week of city wide events, centered around the sailing.
There are over 2000 boats with fleets spread wide and far. Kite surfing, ORC, Swan 45’s and J-80’s are just selection of the handful of non-olympic boats that are racing in addition to the full Olympic spread.
Canada’s Paul Tingley is there as we speak, representing in the 2.4mR. He’s had a great week so far, kicking things off with a bullet and maintaining fifth over all. He’s races were scored – 1, 7, 11, DNF, 8, 8, 9, 3, 6, 3. Count em up... that’s right, 8 top ten finishes for Mr. Tingley as he maintains his reputation as one of the 2.4mR’s heavy hitters.
