5 WINS FROM 7 RACES GIVES VICTORY AT YES TO DANIEL GOTTLICH/LINUS KLASEN (GER)
The annual Young Europeans Sailing Regatta or YES attracted a stellar line-up of eighty-six 420 teams from across Germany for this three day event hosted at Kieler Yacht Club.
Always popular, this year's entry list was as impressive as ever, and the dominance of performance around the race track by Daniel Gottlich/Linus Klasen put them virtually in a class of their own.
Racing in split fleets for the 5-race qualification series, the 86 teams then advanced to either gold or silver fleet racing for a further 2 final series races. Gottlich/Klasen maintained their form when the best of the fleet came together for gold series racing, notching up a 1,2 to win by 4 points over Phlipp Royla/Kim Fernholz, and thrid to Felix Kaiser/Samuel Storr.
Top girls team in fourth overall were Theresa Steinlein/Lina Plettner.
