Germans Paul Kohlhof & Caroline Werner are leading the Nacra 17 fleet at Kiel Week 2015 after 9 races. Followed by two Italian crews, in fourth place, the new N17 Arg team of Martinez-Bosco.
Good championships for them, as a Nacra 17 rookie team, they seem to be grasping the rhythm pretty well, although the top notch Olympic riders are not present at Kiel, there are some experienced cat crews, giving them the boost needed to continue the long Olympic Journey towards Tokio 2020.
Andy Rice tells me tomorrow we will have another stream round for the Nacras , follow this link to watch it on Tuesday www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CjS7qxniVM.
