Nacra17 Europameister 2022 Ruggero Tita X Caterina Banti ITA 26, Silber NZL 96, Bronze FIN 13

Aarhus, Dänemark – Olympisches Segeln ist ein enormer Wettbewerb, aber es gibt dominierende Leistungen und Jahreszeiten. Selten, wenn überhaupt, hat ein Team eine große Meisterschaft so gewonnen wie Ruggero Tita und Caterina Banti diese Europameisterschaft in Aarhus. In 15 Rennen gewannen sie neun davon, wurden fünfmal Zweite und belegten einen achten Platz. Insgesamt sind ihre 21 Punkte weniger als ein Viertel der 86 Punkte, die das zweitplatzierte Team erzielte.

Die Nacra 17 wurde im März zurückgesetzt, als die Flotte einstellbare Ruderanschläge einführte. Die Änderung ermöglicht die meiste Zeit das Foilen gegen den Wind und scheint direkt in die Stärke der amtierenden Goldmedaillengewinner gespielt zu haben. Tita und Bandi dominieren auf dem Foil, was bereits durch ihr Vorwindsegeln im Tokyo-Quad klar war und unhandlich geworden ist, als die Flotte zum vollständigen Foilen übergegangen ist.

Der Rest der Flotte beobachtet jedoch jede ihrer Bewegungen, und zweifellos werden die Lücken mit der Zeit kleiner werden.

Den zweiten Platz hinter den aalglatten Italienern belegt ein junges Duo aus Micah Wilkinson und Erica Dawson (NZL), die zum ersten Mal bei einer Meisterschaft auf dem Podium stehen. Das Paar gewann knapp die Kiwi Olympic Selection nach Tokio, musste sich jedoch in den Monaten vor den Spielen mit einer Verletzung auseinandersetzen, die es ihnen nicht ermöglichte, bei den Olympischen Spielen in Topform zu sein. Ihre Rennen in dieser Woche waren sehr stark in einer ziemlich konkurrenzfähigen Flotte hinter den Italienern, und die Kiwis segelten die ganze Woche über sehr konstant und zeigten, dass sie ein Team sein werden, das man im Auge behalten muss.

Sinem Kurtbay mit Akseli Keskinen (FIN) wurde Dritter, was auch ihre erste Podestplatzierung bei einer großen Meisterschaft ist. Das Paar war in den letzten paar Saisons auf einem stetigen Aufstieg und scheint bereit zu sein, Headliner zu werden.

Die Flotte wird jetzt für den Versand nach Nova Scotia, Kanada, für die Weltmeisterschaft Ende des Sommers zusammengepackt.

Hier ist ein Link zu den vollständigen Ergebnissen, Fotos, Tracking, Live-Übertragung und mehr.

Championships Aarhus 13.08.2017

Die Champions feiern Aarhus – Philipp Buhl: “Blicke sehr optimistisch auf die WM 2018!”

Wenn es bei Test-Veranstaltungen darum geht herauszufinden, wie die Systeme funktionieren, dann haben die Hempel Sailing World Championships Aarhus Denmark 2018 dreierlei bewiesen: Die Australier sind im Laser immer noch eine gut geölte Maschine. Die Bucht von Aarhus ist eine großartige Segelarena. Und Philipp Buhl ist der netteste Typ des Segelsports.

Der Finaltag brachte stärkere drehende westliche Winde um 12 bis 15 Knoten mit Böen bis zu 20 Knoten, deren Auswirkungen auf die Platzierungen für die Aktiven nur schwer zu kontrollieren waren. Doch die Spitzenreiter haben sich in dieser Woche durch eine ganze Reihe verschiedener Bedingungen gekämpft und deswegen war es auch keine Überraschung, dass sich zwei der besten Lasersegler der Welt aus Australien Gold und Silber sicherten. Dabei konnte sich Matthew Wearn gegen seinen Landsmann und Olympiasieger Tom Burton durchsetzen.

Der deutsche Olympiasegler Philipp Buhl aus Sonthofen beendete die Serie in der eindrucksvoll stark besetzten Laserflotte als Sechster, obwohl er im Medaillenfinale mit Rang neun hatte zufrieden sein müssen. “Ich habe mich gut getestet gefühlt”, sagte der 27-jährige Aktivensprecher des German Sailing Teams und strahlte, “wir haben die Woche über verschiedene Bedingungen erlebt. Und ich glaube, dass Aarhus sogar noch ein paar mehr Windrichtungen zu bieten hat. Ich denke nicht, dass wir schon 100 Prozent der Möglichkeiten erlebt haben, die es hier in diesem Revier geben kann. Ich habe eine etwas andere Perspektive als andere in der Flotte, denn ich komme aus Kiel. Wenn Du es – wie in Kiel oder Aarhus – mit der Westküste zu tun hast, dann ähneln sie sich doch sehr. Ich fühle mich in diesen Bedingungen wohl und blicke sehr optimistisch auf die WM im nächsten Jahr.”

Buhl klingt und sieht aus wie der kommende Champion seiner Klasse und bedankte sich ganz besonders bei den Freiwilligen Helfern aus den 270 Segelvereinen des Gastgeber-Landes, die ihre Arbeitsabläufe ebenfalls getestet haben. “Sie haben uns alle sehr unterstützt und waren super freundlich. Ich glaube, dass sie sich wirklich darauf freuen, dieses Event auszurichten. Wir Athleten spüren das und es macht für uns einen großen Unterschied.”

Buhls herzliche Botschaft hat auch die Dänische Segler-Vereinigung und die Stadt Aarhus erreicht, für die der Countdown zur Weltmeisterschaft aller olympischen Segel-Disziplinen im kommenden Jahr bereits begonnen hat.

“Nach einem so erfolgreichen Test-Event wissen wir, was funktioniert und was wir noch verbessern können. Wir freuen uns mehr denn je auf die Ausrichtung der Weltmeisterschaft in einem Jahr”, sagte Lars Ludov, CEO von Sport Event Denmark, “2018 werden wir die Veranstaltung auf ein neues Niveau bringen, wenn wir das Aarhus International Sailing Center eröffnen, das zu den modernsten und fortschrittlichsten Heimathäfen für Segler in aller Welt zählen wird. Wie es ein Segler in dieser Woche formuliert hat: ‘Es geht darum, zur rechten Zeit am rechten Ort zu sein.’ Aarhus ist der richtige Ort zur richtigen Zeit!”

Der Segler war kein Geringerer Nicholas Heiner aus den Niederlanden. Der frühere Laser-Weltmeister kontrollierte den mit sieben Punkten Rückstand ins Finale gestarteten Zsombor Berecz aus Ungarn im Medaillenfinale so souverän, dass er die Testregatta im Finn Dinghi. gewann.

Im 49er hatten die Kieler Justus Schmidt and Max Boehme nach zwölf Rennen auf dem so eindrucksvollen wie aussichtsreichen zweiten Platz gelegen, bevor sie die Regatta vorzeitig beendeten. Das hatten sie aufgrund von Terminüberschneidungen von Beginn an so geplant, wollten sich die Testregatta und das intensive Erkunden des WM-Reviers für 2018 aber auch nicht entgehen lassen. Max Boehme sagte: “Das war jetzt schon ein ganz cooles Event! Da können wir uns nur auf alles freuen, was uns in 2018 erwarten wird. Die Veranstalter sind extrem motiviert und haben große Ziele. Wie gut für den Segelsport!” Die Österreicher Benjamin Bildstein und David Hussl sicherten sich im starken Schlusspurt den Sieg im 49er.

In den weiteren Medaillenrennen gewann am Sonntag Josefin Ollson aus Schweden den Laser-Radial-Thriller, in dem sie die zwischenzeitlich führende Erika Reineke aus Amerika auf dem zweiten Amwind-Abschnitt noch überholte. Linda Fahrni und Maja Siegenthaler aus der Schweiz gewannen die Serie der 470-Frauen mit nur einem Punkt Vorsprung, während sie drei Boote hinter Agnieszka Skrzypulec and Irmina Mrózek Gliszczynska aus Polen ins Ziel kamen. Die türkischen Brüder Deniz und Ates Cinar, verteidigten ihren 12-Punkte-Puffer bei den 470-Männern.

Das Land der Küsten, die Stadt der Segel und die Bucht der Champions sind bereit: Für Dänemark läuft der Countdown für die Segel-Weltmeisterschaft 2018!

Champions hail Aarhus after final day of snakes and ladders

If test events are all about checking how systems are working, then the Hempel Sailing World Championships Aarhus Denmark 2018 Test Event has confirmed that the Australians are still a well-oiled machine in the Laser, Aarhus Bay is a great sailing arena and Nicholas Heiner’s weight gain programme (95 kilos and counting) is paying out.
Denmark and the Netherlands shared the honour of topping the medals table with 2 golds and 1 bronze each.

After the lighter airs yesterday, a final day of racing in stronger, veering 12-15 westerlies, gusting to 20, made for medal races of shifting fortunes that were hard to control. But the top sailors have prospered here in the range of conditions during the week and it was no surprise to see the two best laser sailors in the world take gold and silver, albeit with Matthew Wearn finishing above Tom Burton, the Olympic champion. Sam Meech, the Olympic bronze medalist took third, finishing behind Burton in the medal race.

“It’s been fantastic sailing here,” Wearn said. “I think coming in fresh for the Worlds next year would have been a pretty big mistake, and would have made it really hard to get a good result. It’s been great, we’ve had a variety of conditions, all different directions, it’s been fantastic for a test event. I like the shifty stuff where you’ve got to be on the ball every race. The best sailor is going to come out on top at the end and win a regatta like that.”

“In the medal race I went for something off the start line and it didn’t work out, so I rounded the top mark as one of the last few boats,” Wearn, who took a healthy 13-point lead into the medal race, added. “We were sailing really close to the shore, with an offshore wind direction, which made it unpredictable. I had a bit of work to do for the rest of the race, but the wind was shifting so much there were plenty of opportunities to catch back up – it was a bit of snakes and ladder kind of day. I was pretty glad to have the points buffer.”

German Olympian Philipp Buhl, confirmed his reputation as one of the nicest guys in sailing by going out of his way to thank the volunteers from the country’s 270 sailing clubs – they say that you are never more than 50km from the coast in Denmark – who have also been testing their systems. “What made the experience great was the people working here,” Buhl, who finished sixth overall in the laser, said. “They were all very helpful and very friendly. I think they’re really looking forward to hosting this event and we athletes can feel that and that makes a big difference to some other venues.”

That will have been heartening for the Danish Sailing Association and the City of Aarhus as they count down to the World Championships next year.

“After such a successful Test Event, we know what works and what can be improved and we are looking forward more than ever to hosting the World Championships in a year,” Lars Lundov, CEO of Sport Event Denmark, said. “In 2018 we will take the event to the next level when we open the Aarhus International Sailing Center, which will be one of the most modern and advanced homes for sailors in the world. As one of the sailors said this week about positioning: ‘it’s about getting to the right place on time.’ Aarhus is the right place at the right time.”

That sailor was Holland’s Heiner, the former laser world champion, who is still bulking out in his transition to the Finn. It is working because he was strong again in the windy conditions and managed to completely control Hungary’s Zsombor Berecz, who had started 7 points behind, to win the Finn. “I was really happy with my performance, especially in the big breeze,” Heiner said. “I’m not the heaviest and tallest guy – they’ve got 10kg on me – so have strong races in the big breezes this week was really nice and gives me a lot of confidence. Maybe the conditions in Aarhus favour the heavy guys a bit, but the light one won.”

Berecz cannot wait until next time: “He did a very nice job so I can’t wait for the rematch.”

In the other medal races on Sunday, Sweden’s Josefin Ollson won a thrilling and fluctuating Laser Radial medal race, passing America’s Erika Reineke – who she started the day two points ahead of – on the second upwind. Switzerland’s Linda Fahrni and Maja Siegenthaler won the women’s 470 by one nail-biting point as they trailed in 3 boats behind Poland’s Agnieszka Skrzypulec and Irmina Mrózek Gliszczynska. Turkish brother’s Deniz and Ates Cinar, defended their 12-point buffer in the men’s 470.

Country of coasts, city of sails, bay of champions, Denmark are already counting down and gearing up Aarhus 2018.

Aarhus offers taste of Championships to come

It is a truth universally acknowledged in the boat park, that while some classes are talking tech or weather, the windsurfers are finding out where to eat and chill out. But when it is competition time they are as fierce as anyone and the men’s RS:X at The Hempel Sailing World Championships Aarhus Denmark 2018 Test Event whetted the appetite for the battles to come here in a year’s time.

On a day of light airs, there was drama all the way to the finish line as the leader all week, Pawel Tarnowski, the 2015 European champion and one of Poland’s powerhouse production line of windsurfers, lost his gold medal by five metres, having been caught out by a gust and passed by the fleet.

France’s Louis Giard, the European champion, fresh from finishing second in the world cup final in Santander in June, was one of those who planed past, 200 metres from the finish line, and managed to finish second, as Tarnowski slipped to eighth. With the double points of the medal race it meant they finished level on points; Giard taking gold because of his better performance at the last. But the Frenchman admitted he had not known until after the race, and had not been thinking about it after Tarnowski sailed away at the start.

“I didn’t start the medal race with the goal of winning the event, he (Tarnowski) was 12 points in front of me, and I was on equal points with third and fourth place,” Giard said. “So, the main goal was to secure second place. Pawel was in front of me from the start, so, in my mind it was just about staying second or third. But in the last downwind a gust came and Piotr (Myszka, Poland) started planing and I tried to do the same and I finished the medal race in second place, but it was only after the finish line I realised that Pawel did not start planing and lost a lot of places. I was a bit lucky.”

But Tarnowski, who has struggled to find time to train while studying engineering in Dansk, was philosophical. “Everything had been going perfectly for me,” Tarnowski said. “I counted the places and it was still ok but just 200m from the finishing line, there was a strong gust behind me and the two guys behind got it 10 or 15 seconds before me – It was downwind so they caught it faster – and they passed me by a few metres. When I caught the gust, they were already slightly in front of me, and I was doing my best to catch at least one guy, but I didn’t manage it by about 5m and I lost the medal, it was so horrible for me. But we had a great week. I was going well, I enjoyed all the conditions, all the wind directions. The level was very high it’s been really useful coming here before the Worlds.”

The RS:X women’s winner had been decided even before the medal race such has been the dominance of Lilian de Geus, the Dutch windsurfer, who was fourth at the Rio Olympics last year. De Geus stated the race a massive 25 points clear of Italy’s Marta Maggetti, who had to pull out a fast finish to move up to sixth and hold onto second place overall with four sailors in contention. Her compatriot, Flavia Tartaglini, won the medal race to jump into third and a little ruefully said she almost had silver.

“I was actually quite surprised that it was easy this week,” De Geus said. “I’m really happy with my series. I wasn’t expecting it before the event. It’s my first time here and it’s nice to have good memories of place. That gives me confidence.”

The 49er was closer to the Men’s windsurfing as the leaders, the Australian brothers, Sam and William Phillips, were caught by the Austrians, Benjamin Bildstein and David Hussl, in the final race and slipped back into seventh. The two pairs had been battling at the front all week and dominated the 49er’s unique series of three medal races (where points are not doubled). The Australians won the first and finished second in the second, behind the Austrian’s but then got into trouble on the first beat of the last race as the Austrian’s attacked them.

“It was a tough one,” Sam Phillips said. “We needed to finish within one of the Austrians. We started on starboard, the Austrians were below us, a boat rolled over the top from the windward end, we tacked onto port. We came into the middle of course and it was a tight cross by the Austrians and they just managed to tack in front of us – that was a pretty defining moment in the race. Following that, they put two more tacks on us as we tried to free our air and we were just back a little bit and struggled from there, we were last at the windward mark.”

It was not an out-and-out match race because the Austrians needed to extend ahead. “But, they just made it really difficult for us, and it really worked,” Sam Phillips said.

There is no doubt that both pairs were not just here on reconnaissance for next year, they wanted to win this one.

“After (the first two medal races) it was just about them or us who was winning,” Bildstein said. “So, we sailed slightly more aggressively but not unfairly. I think it was a nice match, especially as on the second day it was really us two boats matching each other, it was big waves and heavy wind and all three races, both of us were top three. It was a really nice fight – we are good friends with them.”

Denmark’s 49erFX Olympic bronze medallists in Rio, Jena Mai Hansen and Katja Salskov-Iversen won gold in the 49er FX as expected. Almost mathematically uncatchable before the three medal races, they put things beyond doubt by finishing first, third and first. Behind them the fight was more intense. The Norwegian twin sisters, Ragna Agerup and Maia Agerup held onto silver and the Americans, Stephanie Roble and Margaret Shea took bronze.

The Nacra 17 medal race was cancelled. Lin Ea Cenholt and Christian Peter Lubeck, the leaders after the 10 rounds, were awarded the gold, Denmark’s second of the day.

That leaves the Laser, the Laser Radial, the Finn and the 470 medal races tomorrow (Sunday).

A 90 degree wind shift in the last of three rounds of the lasers tonight, shook things up at the top of the fleet, with Tom Burton, the Australian Olympic Champion, finishing 54th and dropping far into second overall, 13 points his fellow countryman, Matthew Wearn.

In the Laser Radial, Marit Bouwmeester, the Olympic champion, went home early, to protect a back injury she is just returning from. That left the top spot open and Sweden’s Josefin Olsson and America’s Erika Reinneke stepped up in their last three rounds to claim the first two spots respectively.

In the Finn, the Netherlands’s Nicholas Heiner and Hungary’s Zsombor Berecz increased their grip on the top of the leaderboard after their two races yesterday.

In the women’s 470, a win and then a second place finish in their third race of the day, gave the Swiss team, Linda Fahrni and Maja Siegenthaler, clear water at the top of the leaderboard.

In the men’s 470, another family bond, showed its strength, with the Turkish brothers, Deniz Cinar and Ates Cinar, finishing second, second and third in their three rounds to take a 5-point lead into the medal race as French pair Kevin Peponnet and Jeremie Mion slid to third.

The final day of the racing at the Test Event begins at 12:00 (local time) in Aarhus Bay tomorrow (Sunday).
