IFDS Worlds - Hot competition on first day of racing

'2.4mR rounding the mark'    © Jude Robertson

Sunny skies and shifty wind conditions were part of the story of the first day of racing at the High Liner IFDS Worlds 2014 at the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron in Halifax, Nova Scotia. All three classes raced twice on Tuesday with some drama focused on the 2.4 mR course where 48 competitors have to fight for the favoured spot to cross over the start line. A number of competitors were given a black flag on the third recall and several high performers were caught up and now sit far back in the fleet.

In the lead in the 2.4 mR class after two races is Heiko Kroeger of Germany followed by Kevin Cantin of France and Helena Lucas of Great Britain. Canadian Bruce Miller is in fourth position.

On the SKUD-18 course, the Italian team of Marco Guadalandris and Marta Zanetti are tied for first place with Daniel Fitzgibbon and Liesl Tesch of Australia, the gold medal winners from the 2012 London Paralympics. The British team of Alexandra Rickham and Niki Birrell are next and Canadians John McRoberts and Jackie Gay are just one point behind.

In the Sonar competition, GBR-1 is in first place. Canadian Paul Tingley whose hometown is Halifax and his two teammates are in second place after the two races today and the US team of Rick Doerr, Hugh Freund and Tim Angle are in the third place spot.

The international jury lead by Pat Healey of the United States spent several hours hearing seven protests that came out of today's racing.

The weather outlook for the week is for continued fair conditions with light winds forecast for the next couple of days. Principal Race Officer Rob Williams said he would prefer to see the normal southwest breezes that are common in Nova Scotia as the northerlies over the past few days have made it harder to set up race courses and less predictable sailing conditions for the competitors.

Two races are planned for each class until Saturday. A final championship race is in the plan for Sunday.
