Andrew Holden Posted July 14, 2004 Report Share Posted July 14, 2004 Monday 12 July 2004: to the hours 15 comes lowered the flag of class and begins officially the championship of the world f18 2004. 155 the boats officially registered, all in front the line of departure; it is waited us a hard and exciting regatta, the sea will do the first selection, with two meters of wave and a maestrale of 24 knots, 30 boats do not conclude the first regatta, to the second departure present themselves in 91. The time wanted to say its, the wind wrote the listing. An unanimous opinion labeled the regatta of yesterday like an of the hardest; the wave is hostile of this class and this time the gulf, of hospitable habit, wanted to warn the regatanti, wanted to remember that in fund the games does them he. The route of yesterday was a stick, a marker against wind, and the departure a you improve back, in precise board with the wind. The difficulty I was drawn immediately, the dinghies of assistance found large difficulty in the to position the marker against wind, poichè changed continually of 5/10°, that over a route of a you improve I am a lot, the that would want to say to take advantage enormously a side of the route and to distort fixable the regatta. The difficulty of pose of the marker, were alone the first, the wind and the developed wave did the remainder, morale of the story, a lot of withdrawals, little arrivals and a lot of protests, that is appeals to the regulation for of the irregularity, true or assumed, finished from some regatanti to damage of other. The listing has face of the confirmations of leadership, first after the first session of regattas is MITCH BOOTH already champion of the world of the editions 2000/01/02, according to the swiss champion deputy COLBY in office, third the Dutch HEEMSKERK; the French BOULOGNE, champion in office, is alone fifteenth.
