Matthias Pape - GER 83


When did you get into the 2.4 and why?

I got into the 2.4mR because a good boat was released in the SCM, because I had been interested in it for a long time and because I finally didn't want to be just the race director and organizer. Finally sail again without having to look for a canoe that has time and desire. Small boat, great fun and especially because in Münster SCM a whole range of 2.4mR are already being driven by nice people.

What did you sail before?

From pirate, opti, youth hiking cutter, H-dinghy, P-boat, O-dinghy, darts 18 cat, very active folk boat, then thick-ship frigate and again migratory bird. Sometimes with good, sometimes with less success - but always regattas. And in Münster on the Aasee, everything that swims, from the migratory bird over J80 and J70 and c55 to the BM. Race director licensed for many years and occasional holiday cruiser. Often helmsman, long in the middle on the folke.

What do you like about the 2.4?

The nice people, the seriousness with which the class sails without being dogged. The handling of a real keel boat without having to move tons. In addition to the extremely fair and nice companionship, 2.4mR sailing is so fun because not only the muckis and the euros, but the head are important.
