Bio

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. His next event with Eike is the 2018 Worlds in San Francisco, where the boys are expecting to be battling for a Top 5.
