Whilst racing, Eike started to teach other young sailors, and in 2003 he asked Georg Borkenstein (one of his protégée’s) to join in his International 14 campaign – “the coolest skiff class”. Ever since the Int.14 2005 Europeans in Travemünde, they have been competing and enjoying a successful partnership (winners of 6 German International 14 Nationals in eight years).
In 2012, he took part in the 18 Footer skiff World Tour and even won the UK Nationals – another amazing skiff.
2018 was an amazing year for both Georg and Eike - they joined as NeilPryde Sailing Elite Riders and enjoyed the best ever result for a German I14 skiff team at the World Championships in San Francisco - one race win and third overall. They're now looking forward to 2019 and getting faster...
