Strategy and Tactic

Philipp and Julian Autenrieth: "The best tactic and strategy decide the outcome, while the boat and the conditions are more or less the same for everyone.  Whoever can make the best out of these conditions, wins."

"... on the water everything ran differently than normal today – the “Dry Training” on the PC made it’s impact felt. The kids had grasped quickly, why and how far they had to luff or bear away in order to sail successfully, and how important it is it tack on the long leg."

With George Blaschkiewitz , we can get excited about a prominent coach for the work with Tactical Sailing. Also, our exercises on PC were well received by the kids in his training group, who wholeheartedly made use of the chance to apply on the water what was learned in practice.

Daniela Bartelheimer - German champion in Optimist

Daniela Bartelheimer

The new German Champion wins top rankings (1,1,1,1,2,1(17),4). Right from the first day of racing Daniela was always in the lead and could not be displaced from winning the series. It was an unbelievable 9 points which separated her from Cecimo Zahn, the runner-up, followed by Klemen Semelbauer from Slovania. Before the German Championship 2015, Daniela competed in the Optimist European Championships at Pwllheli / North Wales. Although Daniela's home sailing club in Inning is located directly on the opposite bank from the organising Augsburger Sailors Club (ASC) on lake Ammer/Ammersee, it can hardly be said that she had a home advantage. Over the past months she has trained mostly on the Baltic Sea and Lake Garda, leaving her little time to train in Bavaria. The last overall victory of a girl winning the German Championship was in 2005 when Svenja Weger won this award.

"I have the sailing tradition in my family to thank that I could grow up in a sailing club. My development as a regatta sailor has led me from Optimist, Cadet, and 420-er to Olympic 470-er. In this class I ultimately reached the necessary regatta level. During my long-term membership in the Polish 470 national team, I was already courting the idea of pursuing a career as a sailing coach. I completed the corresponding coaching education at the Sport Academy in Gdansk in my homeland of Poland."
