PROFILE.

Helmsman/Tactician.

Markus Wieser is one of the best German sailors and has celebrated countless victories in a diverse range of boat classes and disciplines. Between 1984 and 1992, he sailed on the Flying Dutchman and focussed on big boat and match racing. In recent years, Wieser has been a talking point in the dragon class in particular, and sailed from one success to the next: He has won almost every important title at least once since 2005. The man from Starnberg ended the 2013 and 2014 seasons in first place in the world rankings for dragon racing. Wieser is also successful in other classes of boat. For example, he won the world championship in his first regatta in the 5.5mr class in 2013.

It is a great challenge catching the field from behind after a bad start and getting a good result.

FOUR QUESTIONS.

What do you do when you aren't sailing?
I take care of our family business.

What will sailing be like in ten years?
The foil technique will become more and more prevalent and also establish itself in hobby sailing. However, the rapidly increasing speed of sailing boats that this will bring, whether monohull or multihull, will mean there is an increased safety risk. Speed limits and recommended speeds will need to be introduced.

 

What have you always wanted to do?
Experience heli-skiing with my daughter Vanessa in Canada.

 

Sailing is...
...my passion.
