Final Race !
It’s the highlight of each race season for Hobie 16 sailors in Germany. The deep blue North Sea and the atmosphere of the popular North Sea-Island invites to the sailing event of the year. The Final Race of the Sylt Sailing Week 2014, the final of the qualifying teams of the current ranking of Super Sail Tour 2014 will find its winner on Sunday at the Brandenburger beach.
On Friday, August 8, the best German Hobie 16 sailors will arrive in the North Sea in front of Sylt and will do some training races and give interviews. On Saturday there will be the qualification regattas from 11am.
This year's Kieler Woche winner Lauritz Bockelmann, the senior World Champion Jens Goritz and Stefan Wiese-Dohse. He won the Kieler Woche last year and is currently on the first place of the ranking list. He will also start at the World Cat this year for Germany. In the field of 26 Hobie 16 is the 12-times European champion and 10-times winner of the Kieler Woche, Detlef Mohr. “Here on the island of Sylt, it’s always a challenge for us. The North Sea surge is capricious and thus makes it even more exciting that it already is”, said Mohr.
The teams will sail in exciting fleet races for the internal super sail ranking list, which will then be completed with the results of the previous races. After the races, the audience can expect an interview with the winners of the day. Sunday will be the final race in team match races. The best of the best will sail against each other for the title – 4 Hobie 16 catamarans, two teams and there will be only one winning team in the end. The winning team is the “Super Sail Tour Winner 2014”.
The races will be accompanied by a live presentation every day. Sunday at 4 pm will be the price giving ceremony of the Final Race 2014.
