Sail-World.com : 29er World Championship - Long first day in Travemuender
29er World Championship - Long first day in Travemuender

'Fleet start'    TW Marina Könitzer

After a long first day on the water at the 29er World Championship, with the last of the sailors returning at 8:30pm, the results see some familiar and some new faces rising to the top. Faced with beautiful conditions, with 8-12 knots of breeze for the first two fleets and light to dying winds for the last two, the two race committees were able to knock off three races per fleet for three flights and two races in the green flight.

With results still not available at 10pm, some of the early leaders (less one green race) form the other fleets are Lucas Rual/Kevin Fischer (FRA) lead with five pts, Aussies Tom Signanto/Joel Turner eight pts; ISAF YW gold medallists Carlos Robles/Florian Trittle (ESP) 12pts. The remainder will have to be seen. The Race Committee will hold one more race for the Green fleet in the morning then reshuffle and sail the fleets again.

Australian Harry Price, sailing his first international regatta commented that he wasn’t very nervous but when asked about the conditions commented, 'sort of our stuff, a bit tricky and light.' Harry’s plan for the remainder of the week? 'Just continue to get some good results, get some experience and have a bit of fun.'

Franco Greggi, 2011 World Champion from Argentina commented that it was a 'very difficult day; we started very good and we didn’t expect to win the first race, but we continued and are happy with the day.' He and crew member Victoria Travascio scored a 1-9-3. When asked about their plan for the rest of the week, he commented 'to go race by race, don’t hit any marks, don’t hit anybody and don’t get any letters.' Good words for anyone to sail by!
