This 3 men keelboat event is the most surprising one. The event, which is the only fleet/match combination, looked at the beginning to be quite an easy format – 12 out of 16 are stepping up from 6 fleet races to fight for the medals in a set of match race duels. All one has to do is make sure he is in the 12 after the fleet series. That turned to be impossible for such aces like the Abbots from Canada (13), Celon from Italy (14) the Finnish and Doreste (an Olympic medallist) from Spain who came last. Actually it was so difficult that Jesper Banks from Denmark –medal in 1992, Barely made it to become 12. Today we have the 4 who are going into the semi-finals and these are
Germany - Schuemann
Denmark - Banks
Holland with Roy Heiner Bronze in Finn class in 1996.
