Tornado Worlds 2013 @Ibiza: Day 2


Report sent by Andrew Dowley -- 2013 Tornado World Championships - Day Two
Day two of the Tornado World Championships started with the same conditions as the day before, the race committee decided to postpone racing for one hour to let the wind settle and shift as predicted.
With no discards on the score sheet it was all to fight for when the postponement flag was taken down. There was an 18 knot breeze outside of the harbour with gusts up into the mid twenties.

In the first race the series leaders Nikolaos and Alexandros were the first to discover the gusty conditions after rounding the windward mark, their pitch pole left them heading back for shore and out for the day with some boat damage. 


It was the current World Champions, Iordanis Paschalidis and Konstantinos Trigonis, who took full advantage and were able to take the race victory in Santa Eulalia. Second place went to the Australians Brett Burvill and Faris Aznan, followed by Roland Gaebler and Nahid Gaebler.

There was a slight delay between the first and second race while some competitors had made fixes and come back out to the race course, the wind then shifted leading to the committee boat and course being moved.
In the second race Paschalidis and Konstantinos pulled out the turbo and flew into an early lead at the windward mark, they were closely followed by the Italians Matteo and Lorenzo. Both crews fought the race out but the Greeks held onto their lead with the young Italian team having to settle for second place, while the third place was taken by Burvill and Aznan. Throughout the race there was plenty of position changes further down the fleet with some exciting racing for all of the sailors.

In the evening the sailing club put on a Paella dinner for the competitors and their family.
Wednesday is the rest day for the championships, a time for the sailors to explore the beautiful island of Ibiza.

There are two more races scheduled for Thursday with racing starting at 1pm local time.
