Robertstad takes German WASZP Eurocup

by Marc Ablett 8 Sep 2021 06:51 PDT 4-7 September 2021

Norwegian sailor Mathilde Robertstad has taken out the third leg of the WASZP Eurocup held in conjunction with Kiel Week 2021. Robertstad has had a big couple of months in the WASZP competing in Foiling Week, WASZP European Games, SailGP INSPIRE Racing and the German Eurocup leg.

Robertstad capped off an impressive recent run of form, which has seen her finish 4th women at the WASZP Europeans, 1st women at the Danish SailGP INSPIRE event and now winning the overall title in testing conditions off Kiel.

Unfortunately, someone forgot to order the wind for the 2021 Kiel Week, with most classes only completing one day of racing, with two days cancelled because of wind below 2 knots, the racing the WASZPs did get in however was epic.

Good wind and good waves greeted the sailors, showing the versatility of the boat, the racing was electric. Paul Farien from Germany and Jann Shupbach from Denmark who were on the podium at the WASZP Europeans!

With five races completed and a series in the bag, it was Mathilde Robertstad in the solid conditions who took the win by just one point from Paul Farien, Mathilde becomes the first women to claim a WASZP Eurocup.

The WASZP is providing the most epic level playing field for men and women, boys and girls to compete equally on a one-design platform at an affordable price. This was further articulated by three separate heat winners across the five races and extremely tight points across the fleet.

The Eurocup now heads to Italy and Dongo, Lake Como on the 17th – 19th September, with the final event in Roses Spain to round out the season on the 29th – 31st of October. There will be many options over the norther winter to train in Spain in the lead up to the WASZP European Games to be hosted in Mar Menor over Easter 2022.
