Sail-World.com : Eva Lorenz breaks free of 'Klaus shackles'

Eva Lorenz breaks free of 'Klaus shackles'

'Klaus Lorenz in action'    Tom Quirk

Eva Lorenz, sister of talented sailor Klaus Lorenz, is an energetic Whitsunday Sailing Club Optimist dinghy sailor who has finally managed to break free from the shackles of following the career path in Australian championship racing against her brother.

Since Klaus won the 2011 Australian championship Bronze Medal contested on the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club courses on the Pittwater he has become dedicated in making sure Eva’s dinghy Missee Lee will be on the pace for the 2012 Nationals.

He has accepted the role as the coach of the Whitsunday Optimist sailing team and has noticeably lifted the standard as the squad members prepare to test their skill against the best in the Nation over the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron courses on Brisbane’s Waterloo Bay from January 16-21 2012.

Eva Lorenz will head the tropical team challenge in the Australian championship which has attracted the best male and female skippers from all Australian States.

Since racing in the 2011 Nationals where Eva finished 46th in the 110 dinghy fleet she has continued to mature into a clever and determined your skipper under the encouragement and guidance of her coach.

They possess a special bond of respect with Klaus admiring the tenacious spirit of his kid sister who has shown the talent to be named in the Yachting Queensland Development Squad. However her battle for personal recognition has not been plain sailing for the lightweight girl skipper.

Not unlike all other first time sailors Eva Lorenz experienced a number of energy absorbing capsizes but she never lost her infectious smile and the will to never give up. An example of her personal courage was expressed during a windy Yachting Queensland training camp at Yeppoon where the light-weight girl skipper expressed her determination to never be a quitter.

After experiencing several wild wipe-outs and some energy absorbing sessions with the bailing bucket Eva completed the session tired wet and happy. Her gutsy effort was admired by senior squad members who carried the light-weight skipper and dinghy on a special shoulder high march up the beach to the rigging area. This was a special occasion showing the young Whitsunday skipper that you don’t have to be a winner to be acknowledged.

Her exhibition of sustained endurance to master the overpowering elements also convinced Klaus Lorenz that his little sister had shown she was ready to progressively develop her own career in the male dominated sport.
