Germans take lead at I14 Worlds
Published on August 20th, 2018
Richmond, CA (August 20, 2018) – There were lots of worried faces as teams assembled in the boat park for the fourth day of the 2018 International 14 World Championships. All agreed it looked windy – very windy – but PRO Del Olsen assured the International 14 skiff fleet that everything would settle down.
Local knowledge proved right for a decisive win for the Germans in Race Four. Georg Borkenstein and ‘Big’ Eike Dietrich lead from start to finish with the Brits and Australians, Daniel Holman/ Alex Knight and Lindsay Irwin/ Andrew Perry, respectively taking second and third.
Lay Day tomorrow so plenty of boat repairs, resting weary muscles (and some heads). Race Five starts August 22 with plenty more action on San Francisco Bay.
Seven races are planned from August 17 to 24. When 6 or more races have been completed, a boats series score will be the total of her race scores excluding her worst score.
