Kieler Woche - Sailors show good form on day 3 + Video

At the 132nd edition of Kiel Week, the wind keeps blowing. Just like the first weekend of the event, the race directors were looking at the weather charts on Monday morning again with skepticism to create an emergency program close to the shore due to the persistent strong winds. But around midday the situation improved, so that all classes could be sent out onto the race courses.

Especially among the top sailors, some crews would have liked to spend more time and effort sailing in the strong winds, including brothers Julian and Philipp Autenrieth (Augsburg/Germany), who had a moderate start, but then improved a lot demonstrating their good form.

'The first day we had problems with the rudder lips and could not sail up to our speed potential. Today everything was alright and it all went well,' said crew Philipp. With the rankings four and one, they could end up in front of Olympic winner Mathew Belcher, who only came in fifth twice, in the first race due to a fatal error of the Australian. Well in the lead with his crew Will Ryan on the upwind to the finish, he went back on the downwind course and let four competitors pass before realising his mistake and crossing the finish line. 'It is the first time in 15 years that something like this has happened to me. I thought we had a downwind finish,' said Belcher. He also lost the total lead to the Greek team Mantis Panagiotis and Pavlos Kagialis.

Just behind Belcher and Ryan are Ferdinand Gerz and Oliver Szymanski (Munich) on rank three. Jasper Wagner and Dustin Baldewein (Berlin) are on rank five and the Autenrieth brothers climbed up onto rank seven. 'Our goal for the Worlds would now be to finish in the top 15,' says Julian Authenrieth.

Annina Wagner and Elisbath Panuschka (Berlin/Uerdingen) used their good shape and took over the lead of the small fleet with two victories for the day, before the Australians Carrie Smit and Jaime Ryan.

Laser - Karl-Martin Rammo - 2014 Kieler Woche -  © segel-bilder.de / Christian Beeck   Click Here to view large photo

Germany’s Laser star Philipp Buhl (Kiel) would have liked to hit the waves earlier this morning: 'Where is the problem? Just some waves!' So he had to be patient, but still showed a good performance and did finish on positions one, two and five, with rank two in the end. 'It was good, but I am not really satisfied with myself. I want to win every race. I could only shorten the distance to the second placed by three points like this.' Karl-Martin Rammo (Estland) is still in the leading position.

The top sailor in the women’s Skiffs is Danish speaking. Jena Mai Hansen and Katja Salskov-Iversen defended their top position against Tamara Echegoyen and Berta Betanzos (Spain) despite two fifth places.

The sailors spending the most time on the water on Monday, were the 49er Men. They already had to get out on the water in the morning to define the 25 teams for the gold fleet in the last qualifying races. In the evening they started with the first runs of the crucial round. Erik Heil and Thomas Ploessel (Kiel) were in complete control and are in the leading position after four victories that day.

In the two further Olympic classes, the hosts are just in the spectators’ position in Kiel. The Italian Girgio Poggi is leading in the Finn and the Danish duo Allan Noerregaard and Line Just in the Nacra followed by the Italians Lorenzo Bressani and Giovanna Micol with the same point score.

In the Paralympic classes the Germans are leading. Heiko Kroeger (Hamburg) is not in danger at all in the 2.4mR and did win four times against the strong international competitors, including Olympic winner Helena Lucas. Jens Kroker (Mannheim) also won four times with his crew in the Sonar.
