Sail-World.com : Snipe Senior Worlds - Brazilians make their mark

Snipe Senior Worlds - Brazilians make their mark

'Snipe Senior Worlds 2011'    Jan Madsen

At the Snipe Senior Worlds that finished Saturday in Rungsted, Denmark, the Brazilian sailors made their mark by securing all three podium places.

In a great show of sailing and sportsmanship, eventual winner Alexandre Tinoco and Gabriel Borges did not sail the last race and cheered on their fellow sailors and countrymen on the sidelines after a tough series marred by fluky winds, rain and conditions that kept the race committee never at rest.

Tinoco, commenting on his consistency said, 'in such a high level of championship and competition it is better to sail in a more conservative manner than to take risks for the win. It is better to sail with the fleet in these conditions, for any mistake can create a huge difference.' He further expanded on this topic and his 31st place finish in the third race; 'At the beginning of the event the plan was to be conservative, to sail with the fleet.

However in race three we came to a point where a number of us were sailing at the front and Gabriel and I had to make a decision, continue in a conservative fashion or take a risk. So we deviated from our plan and took the risk. Unfortunately it was not the right thing to do with this fleet and these conditions.....31st place! I learned from that mistake. But I think it is important to thank for all the hard work and support from my crew Gabriel Borges and coach Filipe Novello, both of them were great, of course especially Gabriel.'

Finishing second overall and eight points behind was 2001 Snipe World Champion Alexandre Paradeda and Gabriel Kieling (BRA) and third overall, 2009 Snipe World Champion Bruno Bethlem and Dante Bianchi (BRA).

Eighteen countries participated with fifty-nine total boats on the line. The next Snipe Worlds will be held in 2013. The Royal Danish Yacht Club and Espergaerde Yacht Club hosted both the Snipe Junior and Senior World Championships in Rungsted over the past fourteen days.
