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."

"I also like to play with the wind, speed and angle to the wind are optimally presented with the J/70."

"Tactical Sailing still fascinates me, especially the Coach's Toolbox. For beginners, for young sailors the visualization of the tactical topics at the PC is particularly important. If I am teaching as a coach again, I will work with Tactical Sailing."

"A lot of people often ask for my opinion on the game and I am glad to recommend it.
Coaches like it, too, because they are able to explain some situations very precisely."

Marvin's success factors are: "A good start, speed and tactic." And what is tactic for you?: "Sail the long leg first and right of way!"

Jochen Schumann vs. Marvin Frisch in a Match Race

During the previous 2012 Boat Show there were multiple premieres of every sense simultaneously taking place at the “Tactical Sailing”: Boat Against Boat Opti-Stand. One was the Match Race between the arguably most well-known German sailor, Jochen Schumann, who until that moment had never before used a computer to control a boat, and Marvin Frisch, the German Champion in Opti 2011. Match Racing is a game for experts, which includes an exciting but tricky countdown before the starting gun. As an inexperienced PC-player, Jochen received a short technical introduction on the precision of controlling boats from his adversary, Marvin, before heading off to the starting line.

Fighting to get the best place on the starting line, Jochen showed his many years of experience by analyzing the wind at the starting line, while watching the actions of his opponent in order to tactically plan out the best route possible. However, Marvin would not be intimidated. Instead, he demonstrated his strong nerves and challenged Jochen to a bitter fight at the starting line. The outcome: An early start (OCS) for both Jochen and Marvin!

It was a pleasure for all the visitors at the Opti-Stand to watch both sailors in full concentration steer their boats. We’d like to congratulate Jochen for confidently tackling his first computer regatta. Although he had problems with "sailing without the wind on his neck", he preformed exceedingly well. Jochen and Marvin definitely didn't make it easy on one another, but rather had their fun at fighting for each and every centimeter.

Sailing is my life

"I enjoy some other activities in my free time, I like to play football with my friends, go swimming, ride my bicycle, jog, and play tennis - and not to forget - play an e-guitar. In the wintertime I go skiing . All of this draws the attention off sailing and school". Source see:
