Sun, 21 Jul 2013
The Optimist Team Racing World Championship, part of the Optimist World Championship, got underway today at full speed in Riva del Garda.
The two day Championship started with 38 races on each of the two race courses. Each team races with four boats. Today saw the group stage start with 48 teams, the most ever in this competition, narrowed down to 16 by the end of the day. Tactics, team work, excellent boat handling, speed and knowledge of the Racing Rules of Sailing are essential to do well in this kind of racing.
On the alpha course Singapore, Peru and Spain progressed with three wins and no losses. On the bravo course China, Turkey and Italy achieved the same feat. These 6 teams will surely be the favourites for tomorrow.
The short S shape course, with matches lasting for an average of six minutes ensure exciting and adrenalin filled racing. The Championship will conclude tomorrow.
Elimination round results can be found on the event page at the bottom click Provisional Team racing results.
