We wish our team, skippered by Heidi Burger, good luck and fair winds. Incidentally for those that want to keep track of the racing each day, there is a very good internet race tracker.

RACE AHEAD Report of Kiel Week
Asenathi Jim and Roger Hudson have claimed another top result in their quest to qualify for the Rio Olympics.
Competing in the 470 class, the Cape Town duo powered to fourth overall at Kiel Week in Germany. Hailed as the largest sailing event in the world, Kiel Week, or Kieler Woche in German, takes place in Schleswig-Holstein each year and brings together around 5000 sailors and 2000 boats with participants competing across an array of classes, with a music festival and other celebrations taking place around the sailing.
Jim and Hudson had a great week, finishing second in race two and claiming a win in race four with a third place in race six. A sixth-place finish in the final medal race eventually saw them finishing in fourth spot overall behind teams from Croatia, Austria and Greece.
Fellow South Africans Graeme Willcox and Andrew Tarboton finished 23rd out of 34 teams in the 49er class. Their best finish was a 10th place in race four.
“We were delighted to have two of our RaceAhead teammates Taariq Jacobs and Alex Burger supporting us here at Kiel Week in Germany,” said Hudson, who is already looking ahead to the next events on the schedule.
“The four of us are also preparing to compete at the SB20 World Championship at Lake Garda, Italy 6-10 July, fitting in our training around the busy 470 schedule including Kiel Week and the 470 Europeans in Denmark next week.
“Having Alex and Taariq supporting us here on and off the water is a massive boost for us as the season wears on. We’ve all been training on the SB20 late into these summer evenings when the 470 day is done, mostly getting back to shore around 10pm. Hard work and very busy, just the way we like it,” he added.
