fe5de73721 (320x242)Markus Wieser leads Jorgen Schonherr down wind during the Marblehead..

Jorgen Schonherr won 2 of the 3 races yesterday in Kiel to take a 3 point overall lead into the final day of the prestigious Marblehead Trophy. Crewed by Christian Videbaek & Jan Eli Gravad, the team of “African Queen” (new Petticrows) revelled in the strong windy conditions.

The other race winner yesterday, and desperately trying to hold onto the trophy, was Tommy Muller, crewed by Vincent Hoesch and Michael Lipp in “Sinewave”. In 3rd place overall is Yevgen Braslavets who is also racing a Petticrows. One of the two new Dubai boats helmed by Markus Wieser is in 4th place.

So it is all on todays races, will Tommy be able to retain the Trophy and keep next years event in Kiel….  Or can Jorgen snatch it away and proudly host the 2015 event back in Denmark….With Yevgen and Markus over 7 points adrift of the leading 2 boats, it is unlikely that the Marblehead Trophy will be in Dubai next year, but you never know !!

Higher, Faster, Longer…………..    Stavros.
