Sail-World.com : Pinnell and Gibbon are 505 World Champions

Pinnell and Gibbon are 505 World Champions

'505 Worlds 2008'    Vincenzo Baglione

After the hooter on the start boat (which coincidentally sounds exactly like the sick horn of a 1966 Fiat 500) sounded thrice, signalling the cancellation of race seven of the 505 Worlds, the British team of Ian Pinnell and Carl Gibbon, (Hayling Island Sailing Club), threw their hands up in glee - then Gibbon promptly chucked Pinnell in the Mediterranean to celebrate their World Championship victory.

This has been a tough series for all involved - with winds in Mondello, Sicily, rarely reaching above six knots and many races were run with crews folded and contorted to leeward. Today's highlight (apart from Pinnell's victory) during the extensive on-water delay, was a game of boat Cricket using a tennis ball and paddle and involving most of the 14 strong Australian contingent and the popular bikini clad German girl's crew.

There is still one race to go tomorrow and that will decide the minor places - with weather forecasts differing dramatically, its hard to know for sure what the outcome will be.

But so far the perennial runner up, and previous World Champion, Howie Hamlin and his crew Andy Zinn from Newport Beach, California look pretty good in second. They are closely followed by another previous World Champion Wolfgang Hunger and Julien Kliener (Germany) and the Bojsen Moller brothers from Denmark. Rounding out the top five are the immediate past World Champions Jan Saugmann and Morten Ramsbeck, also from Denmark.

It would be true to say that things here in Sicily don't exactly run at a blistering pace. There are few clocks visible, people don't wear watches and things tend to be measured in geological time rather than the more common hours, minutes and seconds. That all being said, its pretty easy to forget the troubles of the world here in Mondello where the azure Mediterranean challenges even the most literate to conjur accurate superlatives and the sun worshipping locals' easy, relaxed nature is infectious. Except when you want something done... but otherwise the locals complete lack of stress is only matched by the tranquil ocean's windless beauty.

505 Worlds 2008 -  Vincenzo Baglione?nid=49845  

Laid back would also best describe Ian 'Nellie' Pinnell's demeanour. Nellie has won numerous Worlds in other classes, but counts this 505 Worlds as his greatest triumph. And for Nellie, it was never really in doubt. His results have been consistent - currently his worst race is a ninth with all the other results in the top four. Truly remarkable and completely unique in this series.

From the outset, with a win in the first race, a second in the second then a second and fourth the next day he sprinted to an early and substantial lead where others weren't nearly as consistent. He never really looked in doubt, but when questioned after racing he took it all within his stride, with a typically casual approach, and simply said he'd... 'had a good day and got a bit lucky'. Day after day after day.

When we talked to Ian after the non-race today, he was enjoying a foaming Sicilian Birra, he had this to say about the regatta; 'Well, obviously I am really happy. I guess the biggest thing for us was we were able to be in the right place most of the time and got solid results, where the other boats were a bit up and down. It was our time I guess.

'My crew Carl has been tremendous - the feedback I get from him is invaluable and I don't think any one got past us downwind, he really keeps the boat fast no matter what the conditions.'

Mixed results is right - all of the top boats are carrying some really big numbers, with the series only going to a maximum of seven races there is only one drop which has put the noses out of many boats that were scored DNF
on the second day. More than 80 boats didn't finish within the time limit (did we say it was light here?) of race three. But still as they say, the cream rises and there is no doubt that the top 10 have earned their results.
