World Championship FD Class

WET & WILD

Well done to all teams who experienced Nelson on a windy day! Today was the first race of the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2019. Unfortunately we only got one race in but, the sprit is high and the comradeship between teams/countries is great to see. So the racing…. Today racing begun at 1305pm with a gentle but building 12kts northerly. Around two minutes after the hooter 20kts consistently raged over the bay and the sea state rising to 1-2 metre swell. Well done to all sailors especially EDWARD COX AND PETER BEVIS from Aussie sailing in AUS – 7 for taking the first win of the day and Championship! Send it teams!!
