Sail-World.com : Day 2 of International Canoe Worlds abandoned

Day 2 of International Canoe Worlds abandoned

'IC USA242 String Theory'    Alan Powell
Day two of the International Canoe Worlds being held at the McCrae Yacht Club, was abandoned due to winds of 30 plus knots ripping through the water off McCrae.

Further to the earlier race report posted, Christian Knott has posted the following update with more detail.

DAY 1

Sparkling conditions greeted the 39 competitors in the International 10Sq. Metre Canoe World Championship held at the McCrae Yacht Club on Port Phillip Bay. Warm sunshine and 10-15kts of SW breeze provided the perfect opener around a large triangular Olympic course.

The fleet was divided into three divisions; first away were the ICs followed 5mins later by the Development Canoes and then the Asymmetric Spinnaker Canoes, who shared the start and finish lines but who sailed a windward/leeward course. Undoubted star of heats 1 and 2 was Chris Maas in USA242 - a beautifully built and finished radical DC design. Maas sailed through the entire IC fleet to record two clear bullets.

In the IC class Bill Beaver USA219 just managed to cross ahead of Tim Wilson AUS16 to take the gun; Hayden Virtue AUS20 following these two. Steve Clark USA239 could make no impression on Maas in the DCs chasing him home nearly five minutes later, with Oliver Moore US240 in third. John Robson GBR283 led Tobias Kunz GER73 after a close fight all the way round.

The course was swung by 10 degrees for the second heat but in a rising wind the competitors found it hard to identify the immaculately laid windward mark against the background of the beach. As a result the majority of the IC fleet overstood the mark by a substantial amount and in turn misled the DCs and ACs. Once they had realized their mistake the fleet reached down in a spectacular stampede led by Virtue.

In a nailbiting finish, on a course shortened due to increasing wind, he scraped home just ahead of Beaver with Seth Dunbar AUS14 relinquishing his slender lead in a final fluffed tack for the line to come in third.

Clark put Maas under a little more pressure chasing him home two minutes later with Alistair Warren GBR308 taking third place.

The ACs race was more of a lottery after they had a desperate hunt for the windward mark. Once the mark had been identified, Robson scored another win from McLaren GBR280 and Kunz in third.
