Tornado World Championships - Paschalidis and Trigonis win again

by Andrew Dowley on 24 Sep 2012
2012 Tornado World Championships Martina Barnetova
The closing day of the 2012 Tornado World Championships saw some awkward racing in light and fluky winds. Many of the sailors had their discard race and places changed dramatically. Showing consistent form and skill throughout the championship, it was the Greek team of Iordanis Paschalidis and Kostas Trigonis who came out on top with six victories from eight races.

Roland and Nahid Gaebler took the Mixed crown and came second overall with a third place in the last race. In third place overall were Matteo Ferraglia and Lorenzo Bianchini who came 13th in the last race. They've been using the Tornado Class charter boat for this event and are sure to come back and join in for more racing.

Nikos Mavros and Alexander Tagaropoulos took the bullet for the last race and finished up fourth overall closely followed by Brett Burvill and Ryan Duffield in fifth place.

Competition wasn't just at the top with individual battles throughout the fleet and close racing for everyone. Another great event for the class and even better to see new teams coming along and enjoying the racing.

Thank you to Circolo Vela Torbole for another well hosted event. The 2013 Tornado World Championships will be held in Ibiza.
