Georg Borkenstein




International 14


Georg started sailing in Optimists when he was 8 years old on a small lake near Kiel, Germany then transitioned through to the 420 and onto the 29ers. During Georg’s youth racing, his coach, Eike Dietrich decided to start racing the International 14 and recruited him to partner in this high performance skiff. They have been racing with each other since 2005, with dominating form in Germany, winning the Nationals a staggering six times since 2010.

Georg has competed at six International 14 World Champs and multiple Europeans picking up 2nd overall at the 2017 Euros. 
2018 was an amazing year for both Eike and Georg - 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...
