ORC World Championship - Record entries roll in


'ORC Worlds 2014'    okpress
For the fourth year in a row, the ORC World Championship, the official ISAF World Championship for offshore sailing, has attracted over 100 entries, with the count now being at 129 boats. This year's event officials from Kiel Yacht Club said the milestone 100th entry was made during last week's Dusselboot show by Andi Lochbrunner, President of the German Sailing Association, who has entered his Farr-designed modified Bavaria 42 Match 'Resolute' in the event.

'I'm happy to take part at the Worlds in Kiel and together with my crew I'm looking forward to a spectacular sailing event on the Kiel fjord. The Kiel Yacht-Club and Kiel Sailing City have gained an excellent reputation. Over 100 entries from 15 nations at this point is an evidence of the trust that the sailors place in an excellent organization team and a first-class sailing area in Kiel. I wish the event every success!'

Just in these last few days since Lochbrunner's entry, and in the last week before the rise in the entry fees, the number of teams from 15 nations multiplied rapidly, according to Ecky von der Mosel, event chairman from Kiel YC. If all make it to Kiel to compete, this will be a new record number of entries, currently held by the 2012 Helsinki Worlds with 124 boats.

'While we were confident we could attract this many entries, we are extremely pleased to have reached this milestone so early,' said von der Mosel. 'This reflects the high reputation of Kiel as a location for international offshore sailing. Moreover, the quality of the entries is outstanding. So far 60% of the first, second, or third-placed podium finishers from the European or World Championships of the past two years have already signed up for Kiel. Amongst them are three TP52's who are guaranteed to produce exciting high-speed racing.'

Other news is that after the end of this week on Friday, 31 January, the early entry discount will expire on entry fees to this event, being held at Kiel YC over 2-9 August. Those interested in attending are urged to sign up this week and take advantage of the discount offered until 1 February.

All events for the 2014 ORC World Championship will be based from the shoreside facilities at Kiel-Schilksee, and on the water there will be three classes, each racing for their own World Championship title on two separate course areas.

The Notice of Race is available for download at ORC Worlds, and for more information on how to take advantage of the early entry discount, visit www.manage2sail.com.
