Things went well for the three sailing teams from Lake Starnberg on the penultimate Bundesliga matchday.
One crew draws new hope, one gets better and better.
Starnberg / Tutzing - The German Touring Yacht Club is among the living again. Seventh place, won by Julian Stückl, Tobias Bolduan, Jakob Achterberg and Theresa Löffler on the penultimate matchday of the sailing league in Warnemünde, leaves the Tutzing team open to all possibilities for the final in Berlin. The DTYC is only four points behind the secured midfield, after it had been 13 before.
"You will make it," says Micki Liebl.
The manager of the Munich Yacht Club is convinced that the table penultimate will pull his head out of the noose on the last match day.
Liebl can look forward to the trip on the Wannsee with peace of mind.
At the Baltic Sea, Manuel Wunderle, Sebastian Frenzer, Julius Neszvecsko and Jannik Pöhlmann made relegation almost clear with a strong fifth place.

“Something can only happen to us mathematically,” says Liebl.
His team is currently tenth overall and is 14 points away from the relegation zone.
Instead of looking back, the Starnbergers can even look forward.
Just like the Bavarian Yacht Club, which did not get past 13th place in Warnemünde and is within reach of the MYC as eighth in the table.
The difference between the two neighbors from the district town is six points.
There is no doubt that his team can catch up with this deficit.
"They have already announced to me that they will knock out another one in Berlin," reports the MYC manager.
He's excited to see how his quartet, which will compete again in the federal capital with the same line-up, will fare.
Sailing Bundesliga: ONEKiel before German championship
A lot can be expected of the table tenth.
There is no getting around the fact that the professionals from ONEKiel receive the championship cup in Berlin, as their lead on second place with 16 points is almost monstrous.
But the crew from Possenhofener Straße is currently the strongest junior team in the league.
“There are four who harmonize with each other,” says Liebl enthusiastically.
"If you were to take one out and replace it with another, it would no longer be the team."
The MYC's appearance on the Baltic Sea was not completely flawless.
Micki Liebl was annoyed about the weak mini-series (5/4/5) that his boys were able to afford in between.
Interestingly, the team didn't need any outside input to fix the problem.
"You analyze very well," said the team boss.
Munich Yacht Club becomes the unofficial Bavarian champion before Warnemünde
Therefore, wind and waves in front of Warnemünde did not cause them any difficulties, which naturally can drive the sailors from the inland waters to the edge of madness.
Liebl: "All maneuvers work perfectly."
In the tenth flight, the Munich yacht club celebrated its little unofficial triumph.
Since the four Bavarian clubs currently have no say in the awarding of the German championship, they agreed to classify the tenth race, in which they all happened to meet, as a white and blue title fights.
First came the MYC, second the Bavarian Yacht Club, third the German Touring Yacht Club and fourth the Chiemsee Yacht Club.
Liebl about his crew: "She couldn't let that be missed."
