Tornado World Championships - Rolling waves enter the Bay

by Andrew Dowley on 4 Oct 2013
2013 Tornado World Championship day 3 Martina Barnetova
At the Tornado World Championships on Wednesday evening, a number of competitors travelled across the island of Ibiza to the Blue Marlin Beach Club, a main sponsor of the Tornado World Championships. A lovely exclusive beach club in a beautiful location with fantastic food and atmosphere - highly recommended to anyone who visits Ibiza.

With Wednesday as a lay day, the sailors were raring to go on Thursday morning. The weather had changed overnight with the sun hiding behind the clouds and the wind blowing a steady force 3-4 from the East. The change in wind direction bought large rolling waves into the bay and the race course, with the wave height around a maximum of 2.5m.


The brisk easterly and lumpy sea was challenging for most, but the front runners including the Greek team of Iordanis Paschalidis and Konstantinos Trigonis followed by Italian and German teams had pulled away from the main fleet by the end of the first downwind leg. By the end of the race the fleet was spread across the course with several crews retiring from the race. Iordanis and Konstantinos held onto the top spot for race 5 putting them out in front in the championships by 10 points.

At the end of the first race, the race committee took the decision to abandon the second race due to poor conditions and the number of boats returned to shore with damage.


With five races completed, there’s still plenty to play for going into Friday with only one discard counting so far.

Tonight the sailors will enjoy a BBQ night hosted by the club. Tomorrow there are another two races scheduled and the club may decide to bring the race missed today back into Friday’s agenda.
