Nacra 17 @Kieler-Woche: Iker Martinez & Tara Pacheco 1st

Image: Jesus Renedo / Sailingstock.com - Although Iker Martinez had lots of experience and Olympic medals in the 49er, I thought he would take some more time to get used to cats. Ned & French & Gbr top teams were not here, but still many others like Shuwalow, Zajac, Buhler, Bissaro did. Conditions were flat gusty offshore and changing conditions, Iker & Tara managed to score all top 10 spots with only a 21st and an 11th through the entire week.

Waterhouse-Darmanin entered the Medal race leading , and finally tied in points with the Spanish team ending 2nd in the last race decided the tie for Martinez.

In the top ten the news were the two Arg fleets , NZL Gemma Jones &  ITA / GER Pietro Sibello , another ex 49er.
The scoring system is a joke as I remarked last post and since day 1. Just check how Tony Rivas, that for sure had some hardware failure didn´t race 5 Q races, and even so , he could have end entering the top ten and the Medal race when they 10 was the number to participate.
