Delta Lloyd Regatta - Finn gold for Phillip Kasueske + Video

'Finn medal race - 2014 Delta Lloyd Regatta, day 5'    Guilain Grenier    Click Here to view large photo

At the Delta Lloyd Regatta, things started very tight in the Finn class with Pieter-Jan Postma (NED) on equal points with early leader Phillip Kasueske (GER). Jake Lilley (AUS) was six points further back. Kasueske was the early leader after finding the best wind on the right, but it was all very tight.

Round the gate they were very close, and while Kasueske favoured the left, Postma came back towards the middle of the fleet. It was all going to be about the final cross and the German crossed back with a three boatlength advantage. Postma attacked Kasueske all the way down the final run often closing up to under 10 metres. But in the end Kasueske was slightly faster and stayed in front to win the race and the gold. Postma finished second to take the silver, with Lilley in third for the bronze. Many home hopes were on Postma to win his first ever Delta Lloyd Regatta and many thought he would do it this year, so he broke many hearts, as well as his own.

Kasueske explained his race, 'It was really close racing. PJ started on the left side and I started on the right and I was the first to tack to the right side and then I got a right shift and was in front. It got really tight at the marks but in the end I managed to defend.'

'When I came here I thought maybe a third or a fourth would be nice. So now I am first and am really happy with that. I’ve had a really good time here. I learned a lot with difficult and different conditions every day. I made some mistakes, but this was really helpful for my sailing career.'

'I think in the end I made less mistakes than any one else.'
