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."

International German Champion 2017

Mic Mohr

After two final races at the German Championship and a total of 10 races, the Opti championship at Travemünde (Baltic Sea) came to an end. The new International German Champion 2017 in the Optimist class is Mic Mohr (CRC 7). With a total of 48 points and 5-day victories, he confidently asserted himself among 204 optimist competitors in the battle for the top. Mic, born in 2004, not only had to prevail against his brother Roko, but also strong competition from Germany, Denmark and France.
In the fight for victory in the final race probably helped him the unusual name of his boat. With his super-fast Optimist "Rapido" he managed to always lie on the water at least one boat ahead of the other and never give his opponents a real chance to win. Mic launched with the country code "CRC" for Costa Rica, the home of his mother and now also his adopted home. There he actively sails for the "Fragata Sailing Club", but at the same time - like his brother Roko - is a member of the "Plauer Wassersportverein e.V." in Germany.

The two finals in front of Travemünde (Baltic Sea) were really exciting - with a strong southwest wind the young sailors had to give their best until the last mark. In the end, Mic Mohr won for Costa Rica, in second and third place the two German sailors Mewes Wieduwild and Jesper Bahr, in fourth place for Denmark Helena Wolf, in 5th place Roko Mohr, 6th Moritz-Alexander Dürholt, 7th Anna Barth, 8th Christian Lenkmann, 9th Julian Sensch and 10th Catharina Schaaf - all for Germany.
