Sail-World.com : Kieler Woche 2011 Day 2 dominated by Americans

Kieler Woche 2011 Day 2 dominated by Americans

'Paige Railey - Kieler Woche 2011.'    Otto Kasch

Kieler Woche 2011's second day has turned out well for the Americans as Paige Railey strengthens her lead in the Laser Radial and Erin Maxwell along with Isabelle Kinsolving took the top spot in the women's 470.

Zach Railey shortened the gap on the Finn leader to only two points while Anna Tunnicliffe also enjoyed a good second day as she achieved victory in nine races in the first round robin of the Women's Match Racing.

Paige Railey, the younger sister of Zach, added two Laser Radial race victories to the two she recorded on the opening day in Kiel. The world number three leads the 51-boat Laser Radial fleet on four points. Her nearest rivals, Lisa Fasselt (GER) and Krystal Weir (AUS), trail the American by ten points in second and third place.

Five German teams continue to occupy the top ten in the Women's 470 but it is the American duo of Erin Maxwell and Isabelle Kinsolving who came out on top after a fourth place finish and a race victory on the second day. With eight points they lead Tina Lutz and Susann Beucke (GER) who went 1-2 to sit on 11 points. One point behind in third place is Annina Wagner and Marlene Steinherr (GER). Overnight leaders Annika Bochmann and Anika Lorenz (GER) had a poor day finishing 8-11 and drop to fifth.

Zach Railey (USA), who is world number one in the Finn, entered day two in second place trailing Jonathan Lobert by five points. But with two fourth place finishes and a fifth place Railey has closed the gap on Lobert to just two points after five races. 2010 Finn World Champion Ed Wright (GBR) is third on 18 points.

Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) ended the first round robin of the Women's Match Racing competition on top with nine race wins. Genevieve Tulloch (USA) and Olivia Price (AUS) finished behind Tunnicliffe with seven race wins.

The competition has now moved to the second Round Robin phase where the eight quarter finalists will be decided. Tunnicliffe has sailed two races in the second phase winning both whilst Ekaterina Skudina (RUS) and Silke Hahlbrock (GER) have 100% records after three races.

Polish sailors continue to dominate the men's and women's RS:X as Przemyslaw Miarczynski and Agata Brygola had another good day in Kiel.

Miarczynski has had an excellent start to Kieler-Woche winning four out of five races sailed so far. The Polish sailor recorded double bullets on the second day and leads Toni Wilhelm (GER) by five points. In third place on 11 points is Michal Majewski (POL).

Meanwhile Brygota, who claimed gold at Kieler-Woche last year, is yet to record a race win, but with consistent second and third place finishes she leads the fleet on ten points. ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year Blanca Manchon (ESP) put her 12th place finish on the opening day behind her to finish fourth and fifth, she moves up to second place, one point behind Brygota. Jessica Crisp (AUS) sits third on 14 points.

The top of the leader board in the Laser class is once again very tight after another intriguing day of sailing in Kiel. With a third place finish and a bullet world number nine Josh Junior (NZL) took the lead from Simon Grotelueschen (GER). The New Zealander discarded an eighth place finish recorded in the opening race and with two race wins on the second day he leads on seven points. Groteluschen slips to third on 12 points and Philipp Buhl (GER) is second on 11 points. The Germans will be looking to overhaul Junior in their attempt to record a regatta win in their home nation.

There is no stopping Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page (AUS) in the men's 470 as the Australian World Champions clinched their fourth consecutive race win. After five races they are in control at the top of the leader board on four points. Sime Fantela and Igor Marenic (CRO) ended day two in second place on 13 points and Greece's Panagiotis Kambouridis and Efstathios Papadopoulos are third on 23 points.

In the Star, Fredrik Loof and Max Salminen (SWE) and Flavio Marazzi and Enrico De Maria (SUI) are tied on ten points each at the top of the leader board.

Sam Phillips and Will Phillips (AUS) maintained their lead in the 49er but Denmark's Peter Kruger-Andersen and Nicolai Thorsell reduced the deficit to one point despite not starting Race eight. And on 26 points in third place are the Danish duo of Allan Norregaard and Peter Lang.

Racing is set to start at 11:00 local time tomorrow.
