Gold, Silver, Bronze — the complete set of medals of the Olympic Games in front of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) shines at the Kieler Woche 2020 (September 5-13) in the Olympic one-handed class Laser Radial. The 2016 Olympic champion, four-time and reigning World Champion Marit Bouwmeester from the Netherlands will meet Annalise Murphy (Ireland/Silver) and Anna Marie Rindom (Denmark/Bronze) on the Kiel Fjord.
Kiel’s own top talent, Laser sailor Philipp Buhl won gold at the Sailing World Cup in Marseille two weeks ago by less than a metre. Today Buhl beat his British rival by a single point after a nailbiting race to the finish.
It was a champagne sailing day in Kiel, and the Royal Danish Yacht Club runs away with the first ever Women’s Sailing Champions League. The Royal Danish Yacht Club (KDY) won 14 of their 20 heats in the J/70s to win the regatta ahead of fellow Danes, Hellerup Sejlklub.
The weather may have wreaked havoc with the racing schedule for day one of the world’s biggest sailing regatta, but the Danish crews in the first ever Women’s Sailing Champions League regatta found a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow...
The Kiel Week once more offers the whole spectrum of the sailing sport from 16. until 24. June. Moorings are reaching their capacity limits. "All in all we are talking about a record number of 1900 registered boats from about 60 nations. This is great", said the Head of Organization of the Kiel Week Regattas, Dirk Ramhorst, on Monday at the third press conference before the event in the imperial hall ("Kaisersaal") of the Kiel Yacht Club.
A ful program for the first day of the international boat classes at the Kieler Woche. Head of Organisation Dirk Ramhorst could look back at an opening day after five hours, which is really random indeed.
