Sail-World.com : Flying Dutchman World Championships day 3
Flying Dutchman World Championships day 3

On day three of the 2012 Flying Dutchman World Championships, a fleet for 44 took to the water after the end of a shoreside postponement due to lack of wind. The day was brighter, the waves crashed around the bay although the race area was relatively calm with a slight swell.

Eventually there was sufficient wind to start racing. The fleet got away at the first start with a few OCS - all but one returned to restart. During the first race, a standard triangle, sausage with a final windward leg the wind was in the 6 to 10 knot range from 220 to 240*.

At the end of the first lap Kay-Uwe Lüdtke/Kai Schäfers (GER 88) led with Jan Lechler/Jens Salow (GER 100), World and European Champions - Szabolcs Majthényi and András Domokos (HUN 70), and Enno Krammer and Ard Geelkerken (NED 26) in hot pursuit.

By the finish Enno and Ard had gained the lead with the other three holding their positions.

Race 2 started soon after the end of race 1 in about six to eight knots of wind. There was heavy bunching at the Committee boat end as boats tried to tack away to the heavily favoured starboard side of the race course - in towards the shore.

The right hand side was also favoured on the second beat although some of the leading boats went too far in and lost a few places.

At the windward mark after the second beat Dirk Bogumil/Michael Lisken (GER 199) was in the lead, second Peggy Bahr/Torsten Bahr (GER 19), third GER 88, fourth HUN 70, fifth GER 100, sixth Dirk Loewe/Sven Hermenau (GER 35).

On the run most of the fleet went right. As the final beat started the wind became more shifty and many boats tacked after rounding the leeward mark. Towards the finish the wind started dropping and places were won and lost in the final 100 metres as the wind oscillated.

The winners of the practice race Nicola Vespasiani/Francesco Vespasiani (ITA 4) found their way to the front and won the race, with András Süli/David Papp (HUN 13) second and Dirk and Sven (GER 199) third.

Most of the fleet finished in about five or six knots of wind but this gradually faded and the last boat was outside the time limit of 30 minutes behind the leading boat.

Once ashore competitors and volunteers enjoyed a hot dog and a glass of beer in the Regatta marquee.
