Travemünder Woche 2005
Travemünder, Germany

In light winds near the shore in Travemünder, Germany, the 49ers battled in a final race off which saw Thomas REIN and Patrick BOEHMER claim in the title in the ISAF Grade 3 Travemünder Woche, an ISAF Grade 2 event for the 49ers and Tornados.
Brothers Martin and Oliver LEWIN (GER) followed in REIN and BOEHMER to complete a German one two, whilst Austria's 2000 Olympic gold medallist in the Mistral, Christoph SIEBER and his crew Clemens KRUSE finished third.

Due to the light winds the Tornados and 29er had no final races with the winners therefore decided by the final leaderboard standings. This left Russian duo of Andrey KIRILYUK and Valery USHKOV on top in the multihull, ahead of Hugh STYLES and Graham VIALS in second and third place Roland GAEBLER and Gunnar STRUCKMANN. Benjamin FRIEDHOFF and Johanna MUNDING (GER) finished first in the skiff.

Alexander SCHLONSKI (GER) was a dominant winner in the Laser whilst Annina WAGNER and Anneli HARTMANN (GER) controlled the 470 fleet.

With some luck at the end World Champions Wolfgang HUNGER and Holger JESS (GER) won the international German Championships in the 505. They were disqualified in the final race after an infringement with the path finder making up for the special gate start. 'It happened when we were concentrating on covering our closest rivals,' said JESS. However their nearest challengers, Claas LEHMANN and Martin SCHÖLER, could not manage to hold their 100 metre lead from the first windward mark when the wind died at the end. They finished second and therefore lost the Championship to HUNGER and JESS by a single point. Bronze went to Howald HAMLIN and Cam LEWIS from the USA.
