SAP 505 World Championships Day 4

by Jordan Spencer on 31 Jan 2007
2007 SAP 505 World Championship, Day 4 Sail-World.com /AUS © http://www.sail-world.com
The fourth day of the 2007 World Championship being sailed out of Brighton and Seacliff Yacht Club, in Adelaide, South Australia. Race 6 and the forecast was to be a 15-20kn sea breeze.

The morning dawned with a strong ‘gully wind’, a 15kn Sou’ Easter and a lot of cloud. Normally it will bend to the South West and turn into a sea breeze. The cloud was a warning sign, but when it swung to the nor’ East, we knew we were in trouble.

You never get a good sea breeze after a Northerly. Before the race start, it had bent back to the South easter by the time we started; we were heading into a North Wester. There was going to be trouble ahead.

Pressure wise, it was light, 5-8 knots occasionally hitting 10 knots. And there were, as you would expect a lot of shifts. There were some massive positional movements throughout the field, with the field being both compressed several times during the race and then spread on the last beat.

The winner was again Jan Saugmann and Morten Ramsbaek from Denmark, but they had to work hard to do it, digging themselves out from 14th at the first mark.

Their win gives them an 11 point lead at the front of the field. Howie Hamlin and Fritz Lanzinger pulled second after being ninth at the first mark and Boris Herrmann and Julien Kliener picked up third place.

Beyond that there were some huge horror stories. There were plenty of shifts during the race, with the race committee moving the top mark at every bottom mark rounding.

But it was the last beat that was the doozy. The wind had weakened and had bent a little to the left, but there was slightly more pressure to the right and direction was WSW. However as the leaders approached the finish, the wind died and a south easter formed on the shore.

The first two boats crept over the line, and then we had boats coming from the right in a Westerly and boats running from the left with their kites up. In the end the Sou’ Easter kicked in, but a lot of damage was done.

Tomorrow, there are two races and the forecast is again for a 15-20kn sea breeze. We can only hope.
