29er World Championship win to Spanish duo

Robles and Trittel round weather mark - 29er World Championship Marina Könitzer
Carlos Robles and Florian Trittel (ESP) have secured the 29er World Championship by defeating the other 216 teams on the water, even before the last race was sailed.

Onshore after the event Carlos Robles commented, 'I still don’t believe it, I don’t know where I am; I’m the happiest person in the world right now!' Asked if they celebrated on the water, he further commented, 'We didn’t celebrate much on the water as my crew is sick as he has a fever; he’s in the car sleeping now.'

Robles and Trittel sailed a 8-2-25 today saving their discards for the last day with the 8 and 25. Lucas Rual and Kevin Fischer (FRA) widened the points with a 13-1-11 today but good enough to keep them securely in the silver medal position. Third overall was Mateo Majdalani and Klaus Lange (ARG),

Thunderstorms blew through town overnight bringing rain and wind and leftover seas. The 10am start enabled the Gold fleet to complete three races with the Silver and Bronze two each. Unfortunately some leftover weather cells and heavy winds kept the Emerald fleet from completing races on the final day.

Robles and Trittel claimed the top youth team while Ida Marie Baad Nielsen and Marie Thusgaard Olsen (DEN) who finished second at last weeks 29er European Championship were top female team in 14th overall.


Taariq Jacobs and Neil Malan from South Africa topped the Silver fleet with Kai Becker and Dorian Heitzig (GER) atop the Bronze. Emerald fleet winners remained Andrew Kilburn and Calum Healey from GBR.

The 29er Class is estatic with the largest turnout at the 2012 Worlds and the race management and organization of Travemuende Week.

The 2013 Worlds will be held in Aarhus, Denmark and teams are already contemplating their plans for the event.
