Celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Vaurien World Championships

According to some eyewitness reports the celebrations lasted until 2:00 in the morning. Everything started with a plentiful pasta buffet and the regular sailors lottery. Then DJane Feelgood played the right songs and the party really took off.

The party’s effects did however not show during today’s races that started to constant westerly winds with 2-3 BFT. Today 4 races were finished each one changing the overall leader. Now everybody is waiting for tomorrow’s first race, the twelfth of the championship, as the second worst result can then be eliminated from the score. Quite a few participants asked for print-outs of the results sheet to calculate the final outcome on the water.

Here are today’s results icon Results Thursday

Miroslav and Marosch Baran from Slovakia are the current leaders with 27 points, followed by the Spanish team Jaime and Alfonso Leiros with 33 points. On third place is the Italian team Olmo Cerri und Edoardo Meini, both born in 1993. The best all ladies crew are Lucia Llopiz Dominges and Laura Llopiz Castedo on rank 21. The best German team is on rank 12 (Peter Lakshmanan und Amelie Burkert)

Tomorrow the forecast is for south-westerly winds around 9 kt. Torsten Dick, the chief race officer will start the first race at 10:00 and possibly finish another 3 races for a total of 14 races.

We will see at tomorrows prize-giving ceremony who best used the remaining races!
