Markus Brennick’s crew in the “Hattari” (Norddeutscher Regatta Verein / Bayerischer Yacht-Club) defended the world championship title they already won in 2020 by three points over the team surrounding the owner of the “Early Bird” Hendrik Brandeis (Norddeutscher Regatta Verein). In a double package, the GER Crews Leonardo Ferragamos “Cuordileone” relegated to third place on the podium. Sönke Meier-Swatzkis “Niramo” sailed sixth in the field of 16 swans from ten countries, which topped the pros. It was the largest fleet in the World Cup in many ways.
