Hanko III Victorious at Robbe & Berking Sterling Cup 2019

With good, but increasingly unstable weather conditions, the Robbe & Berking Sterling Cup 2019 took place at the Flensburger Segel Club in Glücksburg  over the weekend of 13 – 15 June.

Sadly Andreas Haubold’s “Marianne” was forced to pull out prior to the start of racing due to mast problems, which left five Sixes to compete for the trophy.

Ultimately the competition became a match race between  Robert Gierth’s “Lillevi”, GER 68, with Holger Köhne on the tiller and  Thomas Kuhmann at the helm of Hanko III, US96. After several enthralling dog fights “Hanko III” took the final race win and overall regatta victory. Third place by just a single point went to Ingo Steinhusen sailing Elghi II, FRA102,
