The sailing world and Marinepool mourn Timo Jacobs

It is with great regret that we must confirm the sudden death of Timo Jacobs who was a member of the NRV Olympic Team, since 2009 the Sailing Team Germany and the Marinepool Racing Team.

Timo who died on May 13 from a heart attack at only 29 years of age was crew of Johannes Babendererde and together they formed one of the most successful Star Class teams of their home country.

Our prayers and thoughts are with his loved ones during this difficult time. Timo we will never forget you!
