Finn Europeans and Nacra 17 World Championship - Racing underway

At the Finn European Championship in Warnemunde, Germany, and the Nacra 17 World Championship in The Hague, Netherlands racing is now underway after a day lost due to a lack of breeze.

The Finn fleet’s patience on Monday was rewarded with three races contested in a building sea breeze, while at the Nacra 17 World Championship it was another stop start day, with one fleet managing to complete two races late in the day.

After three races Oliver Tweddell is the best placed Australian in the Finn fleet, with the Victorian currently 26th overall.

Tweddell was 41st in the first race of the regatta, before finishing 18th in race two and 38th in race three.

'It was nice to get so much breeze today considering how bleak the forecast was,' said Tweddell. 'The body is feeling worse off though as it was an extremely physical day of racing. It would be great to have this breeze for the rest of the week and as predicted we had some extremely tight and tricky racing with it taking many recalls before we were finally able to get our first race away.

'Unfortunately I was really off the pace today, throw in a lot of poor decisions and mistakes and it made for a very humbling day of racing,' he said. 'My coach John and I have highlighted these issues and look forward to correcting them over the rest of the week. I feel confident that once these issues are corrected I should be back on the pace.'

Fellow Australian Jake Lilley ended the day in 50th after being black flagged in the first race of the regatta and then finishing 21st and 23rd in the next two.

'It was a long day today with a lot of recalls and three races, making for about eight hours on the water,' said Lilley. 'Racing was challenging with the seabreeze fighting the gradient and packed starting lines. Today I picked up a black flag and two races in the low twenties and am optimistic about tomorrow as I learnt a lot today.'

Joe McMillan is currently in 61st following a 23rd, a 93rd and a 61st.


The 65 entries at the Nacra 17 World Championship have been split into two fleets, with the first fleet finally completing two races late in the day, in a light breeze and strong current.

Only one Australian crew was in action on Tuesday with Josh McKnight and Nina Curtis ending the day in 17th position after an 18th and a 15th.

Fellow Australians Jason Waterhouse and Lisa Darmanin, Euan McNicol and Lucinda Whitty, and Pip Pietromonaco and James Wierbowski will be hoping for more breeze on Wednesday to kick off their World Championship campaign.

Despite not getting any racing in on Tuesday the three crews spent time on the water in the early evening with the race committee unsuccessfully attempting to get a start away before the breeze disappeared.

Full results from the Finn Europeans can be found here, and the Nacra 17 World Championship results are here.
