'49er action during Kieler Woche 2013'    Otto Kasch    Click Here to view large photo

At Kieler Woche, the new race format for the Olympic classes makes the result lists more dynamic. After the first two days of racing, the sailors have only taken their position as a point score into the first elimination round. So, the first race of the top teams almost starts from scratch until the decision in the evening, from which six teams per class will reach the finals in the eight Olympic disciplines.

After the first half of races, in the so-called Gold Fleets, German teams are likely to make it into the top three in seven classes. The 49er sailors Erik Heil and Thomas Ploessel (Kiel) and their class colleagues Victoria Jurczok and Anika Lorenz (Kiel) are leading the fleet at the end of the elimination round.

Heil and Ploessel continued with their good performance from the preliminary round into the first day of the Gold Fleet and took the lead away from the Austrian duo Nico Delle Karth and Nikolaus Resch, who fell back on position three after a mistake at the start. 'The conditions today were extremely difficult. Because the wind sometimes came from the shore, sometimes from the open water. But we got all four starts pretty well and then used the gusts to come up,' said Thomas Ploessel. His helmsman Erik Heil pointed out their high ambitions: 'In the previous year we were in third position at the Kiel Week, now we are motivated to make it again into the top three and are confident.'

In the 49erFX, Victoria Jurczok and Anika Lorenz from Kiel are leading the class in front of Tina Lutz and Susann Beucke (Bergen/Strande). Leonia Meyer and Maren Hahlbrock (Oldenburg/Kiel) and the sisters Jule and Lotta Goerge (Kiel) are still in a good position after coming in fifth and seventh.

The 470 men’s fleet is dominated by the Swedish Anton Dahlberg and Fredrik Bergstroem, while in the women's class the Dutch Afrodite Kyranakou and Anneloes van Veen are in first position.

The athletes from the host country take an outsider's role. As the best German, Uli Breuer from Wismar could move onto position twelve, but it is still a long way into the finals. Anything else than a British victory in this class would be surprising. Mark Andrews is defending the top position in front of Andrew Mills. Brasilian Bruno Prada, in position eleven, has hardly any chance for the finals. But he nevertheless drew attention to himself, since he came to the start with the recommendation of two Olympic medals in the Star class.

'The Finn has changed a lot in the last years. It became very physical being allowed to pump in winds of 10 knots or more. Knee and back: Everything hurts!' said Prada, who is hoping to have a comeback in the Star to be able to start with his friend Robert Scheidt in his home country Brasil. Otherwise he wants to give it a try in the Finn. Scheidt has proven in the Laser that he still knows what he is doing and is leading the Kiel Week fleet, while Philipp Buhl from Kiel is watching him from rank four. 'I watch him very closely, what he does and learn a lot. Robert always has the overview and is confidently sailing to the front. He makes others do the mistakes. I am lacking the patience,' says Buhl. Scheidt likes the tricky and changing conditions at the Kiel Fjord. 'It's my 14th time here - since 1993. It is always a good wind mix. My dream is to compete in the 2016 Rio Olympics and then stop my career and look more after my kids. The best would be to sail in the Star. Until the end of the year, Bruno and I will see, what happens and sail separately,’ said the two-time Olympic Champion in the Laser.

In the Laser Radial, Paige Railey from the USA makes her way. The three-time Kiel Week winner benefits from the new scoring system, that downgrades the preliminary runs. After a mistake at the beginning, she continues sailing at the top since the final round.

In the new Olympic Nacra 17, Tim Shuwalow/Hanna Klinga from Sweden are leading.
