Scheidt Taking Part In The Kiel Week

The legendary Brazilian Olympic sailor, Robert Scheidt, is heading into the Kiel Week where he will be taking part in the 49er skiff class.


The 44-year-old Scheidt has won the Olympic medal five times. It is a great honor for the organizers of the KielerWoche sailing regatta event to have him competing in the 49er skiff class. He will be seen racing with his team mate Gabriel Borges.

The five-time Olympic medalist will not have an easy way into the regatta event. He will be facing a tough challenge from Germans Thomas Ploessel and Erik Heil. They have won the 49er Olympic bronze medal at the Rio Olympics last year. Scheidt will not be deterred by the presence of the Germans as he has the experience and the skills to topple any team on his day. He has had an extraordinary sailing career so far and will be looking to make it big at the Kiel Week. (more…)

Hence, it was high time that the framework was revisited and changes made as per modern sailing conditions and requirements. The skippers of the present teams were asked to rework on the framework, an involvement that helped them see beyond their mere participation in the racing events.

The new framework has been created which was announced to the press in the House of Garrard in London. Here the four skippers of different teams were present to make the announcements.
