July 01 2014

Jasper Steffens and Tom-Lennart Brauckmann are European Vice Champion in 29er. Fantastic races at Keel Week 2014.

In the second half of Keel Week 2014 Sailing Team Germany athletes Jasper Steffens and Tom-Lennart Brauckmann became European Vice Champion in 29er and missed the gold medal by only two points. At the final day the two sailors earned the silver medal in a fantastic race and just got beaten by the Swedish Duo Adrian Salamon / Julius Hallstrom while third place goes to France with Brice Yrieix / Loic Fischer Guillov.

Helmsman Jasper Steffens summarized: "After two races we did not know exactly where we stand so we have given all the best in the last race and it worked. We are very happy we got the second place".

Second part of Keel Week was marked by difficult conditions with changing winds and weather. That is why less races than planned took place. All results on the official Keel Week Website.
