Buhl manages the hat-trick


A strong finish for the national German sailing league. Whereas the first five gold medals of the Kieler Woche were won by international competitors, the German fleet was successful in the 470 Women, the 49er and the Laser. On top came two more gold medals in the Paralympic classes.

Philipp Buhl (Sonthofen/Germany) could manage the hat-trick, in the 49er Erik Heil/Thomas Ploessel (Kiel/Germany) did bring home the victory of Kieler Woche 2014. In 2012 they became third and were ranked second in 2013 at the Kieler Woche. In the 470 Wagner/Elisabeth Panuschka (Berlin/Germany) could bring home the overall victory in the final. Noone could take away the leading position from the past days from the German sailors and silver medalists in London in the Paralympic classes 2.4mR and Sonar, Heiko Kroeger and Jens Kroker/Robert Prem/Siggi Mainka. In the first five final runs of the day the gold medals went to Estonia, Greece, Italy, Spain and White Russia, then the German female sailors showed their strength.

Ranked second in the medal race, Philipp Buhl could gain the gold medal. “It was a calmer race, without hanging too much”, said Buhl about the light wind race, which was won by Italian Alessio Spadoni. “I had wanted to do the hat-trick and made it”, the Laser sailor from Sonthofen (Germany) said smiling. Tobias Schadewaldt  is on rank three right behind Karl-Martin Rammo from Estonia.

In the 470 Annina Wagner/Elisabeth Panuschka from Berlin were having an exciting neck-and-neck race with the leading team Lara Vadlau/Jolanta Ogar (Austria) with a more successful ending for the Germans. Rank three goes to the crew Nadine Boehm/Ann-Christin Goliass from Bavaria.
Almost at the same time, Heil and Ploessel could crown their good performance with winning the Kieler Woche for the first time. “After the rankings three and two it was our goal to continue the series”, said Heil. David Evans and Ed Powys from Great Britain did win silver, followed by Jacopo Plazzi/Umberto Molineris (Italy).

In the Laser Radia, Lisa Fasselt (Essen/Germany), who was leading until then, did mess up the final race. The last position in the final race meant ranking two in the overall result for the 25 year old. Tatiana Drozdovskaya from White Russia could gain the overall victory with 12 points by winning the medal race, followed by Fasselt (30 points) and Pauline Liebig from the Audi Sailing Team Germany, who did gain the bronze medal (31 points).

In the Nacra 17, the Italians Bissaro/Silvia Sicouri (20 points) could take away the gold medal from the Danish team Allan Noerregard/Line Just (25). Lorenzo Bressani/Giovanna Micol (Italy/29) did defend rank three by finishing in third position in the double-rated medal race. Paul Kohlhoff and Carolina Werner (Kiel/Germany) did end up on rank seven after becoming eights.

In the Finn it was quite extreme. Deniss Karpak from Estonia could decide the medal race for himself and thus win the gold medal. With the same point score, Bjoern Allasson from Sweden was on rank two. Both had an exciting final race with the double point score. On rank three is Giorgio Poggi (26 points) from Italy. Phillip Kasueske (VSAW Berlin/Germany) had the best placement of the German sailors in this fleet and just missed the top ten for the medal race with rank eleven.

In the 49er FX the Spanish team Tamara Echegayen/Berta Betanzos came out on top against the Danish team Jena Hansen/Katja Salskov-Iversen. “We did not expect this. Kieler Woche is an important regatta and the conditions with changing winds were very difficult in the past days”, winner Echegayen is pleased.

The team on rank four from the previous year Victoria Jurczok/Anika Lorenz (Kiel/Germany) did win bronze. The Skiffs are sailing three medal races each, where Leonie Meyer/Elena Stoffers (Osnabrück/Kiel / Germany) could manage to move onto rank six by becoming 1st, 8th and 2nd. The winners of the previous Kieler Woche Tina Lutz and Susann Beucke slipped down onto rank eight.

In the 470, the Greeks Panagiotis Mantis/Pavlos Kagialis did not let go the gold medal anymore. But Jasper Wagner and Dustin Baldewein from Berlin (Germany) could manage to climb up on rank two by winning the medal race and thus could push the four time World Champion and Olympic winner Mathew Belcher with his crew Will Ryan onto rank three. The other German crews in the final of the top ten were on rank five (Ferdinand Gerz/Oliver Szymanski) and eight (Julian and Philipp Autenrieth).

Tomorrow the international classes will start, sailing until Sunday to win the Kieler Woche.
