When did you get into the 2.4 and why?
In the beginning the 2.4 was a training boat for our kite crews. In the meantime, this boat has developed into a high-class regatta ship, comparable in a smaller version to the 5,5. With the demanding difference that no support from a crew is available.
Looking for a one-man boat, in which tactics and boat trim are in the foreground, I joined in 2014 after taking part in a few 2.4 regattas on a test basis.
What did you sail before?
OK dinghy, pirate, Finn Dinghy, FlyingDutchman, Star, dragon, 5,5er, Admirals Cupper and 12er.
German youth champion 3 times (pirate)… ..IYRU European champion in the two-man dinghy… Reserve at the Olympia in Naples 1960 …… German champion in the FD… .Silver at the Olympia in Accapulco 1968… ..Bronze in Kiel 1972 …… .Winner of the QuarterTon Cup …… 4 times participation in the Admirals Cup… ..winner Sardinien Cup… and then no sailing egg for 14 years… .. re-entry into the kite class …… vice world champion… and then into the 2.4.
What do you like about the 2.4?
In addition to the extremely fair and nice camaraderie in this class, I enthusiastically sail the regattas and like to train with the competition.
