„Silva Hispaniola" cannot be stopped

 

The leading boats from the first races on the big boat race course strengthened their top position on the second day of the Kiel Cup and have created a good starting position for the "Kaiserpokal" after the four races today.

This race is deciding on the overall big boat Kiel Week winner. It will be started on Wednesday at 16:30 close to the shore in front of Schilksee.

"Silva Hispaniola" from the FSC with helmsman Dennis Gehrlein is well on the way in ORC I. Before the last two races, they have increased their lead over Ralf Laessig's "Xenia" (Bremerhavn) to 13 points.  "Leu" from Kiel with Albert Schweitzer only climbed up one rank to position five with 21 points behind the leader.  It is pretty sure, that the "Silva Hispaniola" will win the battle for the last starting position for the Royal Ocean Cup Team in the national qualifications.

In ORC II it remains exciting, since Kalle Dehler's "Sporthotel" is only three points behind "Veolia" owned by Torsten Bastiansen from Flensburg.  They will very likely settle the title between them. Andreas Rohde with the J/97 "Ratzfatz" (ORC III/IV) came a big deal closer to that goal. Knut Freudenberg's "Halbtrocken" is leading the following boats, but already is 10 points behind the leader.

"We will set a short and sweet course for the "Kaiserpokal" of just two nautical miles, where you should get through in eight and a half minutes", explains Ecki von der Mosel, the man in charge for the big boat race course. "The fastest class winner on corrected time from group ORC I will start as the last one in the kangaroo start two minutes after the best Albin Express." Whoever starts too early, will be immediately disqualified. Violation of the racing rules will be punished right away on the water by the jury.  Protests have to be made within two minutes. Sailing can be as simple as that!
