Mic Mohr Wins All Races

In the largest German Optimist regatta, Mic prevailed in a sovereign manner against 208 competitors.

Mic Mohr, from the Plauer Water Sports Club is, at present, one of the top German Optimist Sailors. In 2017 he achieved third place for Costa Rica in the World Championship. This year he has already accomplished a confident win at the largest German Optimist regatta with a field of 208 competitors on Schilksee near Kiel.
The 15 year old could not be defeated, and with six daily wins he was unchallenged for the overall victory. Last year, with just light winds, Mic only managed to reach a disappointing 13th place. However, this year the conditions were perfect for him: A strong breeze, gusts and shifting winds - just what Mic Mohr enjoys the most - thus enabling him to sail the optimal course and pass all competitors. Even a ripped kicking strap, could not deter his road to success.

Why was he so fast?
"You must sail with the "shifts" and it worked out well", answered Mic Mohr. "I enjoy a bit more wind, which is why it was much better than last year, where there was hardly any wind".
After his win in Strande Bay on Schilksee, the chances are looking very good for the German team in this year's World Championship in Antigua, which takes place in July. Mic has already competently won the qualifying round. With the right winds and his keen feeling for shifting winds, Mic could easily win again by a short head.

"Tactical Sailing" wishes him a speedy boat, ideal waves and, of course, optimal decision making in every race. Good luck, Mic - you can do it!

For those of you wanting to sail as expertly as Mic Mohr, "Tactical Sailing's - Toolbox" consists of over 30 specially designed "ready to run" programs, for example, how to react at the start line, beating, making use of shifting winds or an oscillating breeze, and when to change course as effectively as Mic can. These various topics have been especially devised to show sailors and even beginners, how to most effectively sail a regatta.
