Olympic silver medalists Tina Lutz and Susann Beucke (Holzhausen/Kiel) are fourth after four races in the Kiel Week regattas. The start went brilliantly.
After all, the 49erFX skiff sailors won the first race on Thursday – but the duo fell back in the following three. After 15 years together, Lutz/Beucke will say their farewells in Olympic sailing at the Kiel Week. After losing two Olympic games and winning two European Championships, the two 31-year-olds from Bavaria and northern Germany crowned their careers with silver at the Olympic Games last year.
Lutz is getting married in July. She remains true to sport as a Bundesliga sailor for her home club in Chiemsee and as a trainer. Beucke switched to the offshore subject.
Hamburger Wanser in second place
Luise Wanser and Philipp Autenrieth (Hamburg/Augsburg), who successfully started in the new Olympic discipline 470 mixed, are in second place after three races. In the absence of world champion Philipp Buhl (Sonthofen), Ilca-7 helmsman Nik Aaron Willim from the North German Regatta Association leads the largest Olympic field of the Kiel Week with 98 boats. Windsurfer Sebastian Kördel (NRV) won the opening race of the new Olympic iQFoiler.
Kiel duo Kohlhoff / Stuhlemmer only eighth
The Kiel Olympic bronze crew Paul Kohlhoff and Alica Stuhlemmer has not yet found their way to success in the Nacra 17. “We missed six weeks of sailing. Our package is competitive, our starts were underground today,” said helmsman Kohlhoff, who became a father in May. His team ranks eighth in the fleet, which is brilliantly lined up with the three Olympic medal crews.
