Sailing WS 49er, 49er FX & Nacra 17 Foiling World Championships 2020

Recommended Posts

Day one, no racing due to winds.

Finally some racing with 3 races per class. A frustrating BFD for Ida and Marie while the 2 other races were good. No disaster but less room for bad results now.

The Danish Olympic spot seems pretty certain for Linn and CP in the Nacra while it's still a tight battle in the other 2 classes.

Dutch World Champions Bekkering/Duetz didn't have a great start either. They already collected a lot of points. Third world title in a row is not very likely anymore.

 

At the men's side Bos/van Vugt still fighting for an Olympic place. NOC decided they have to finish top 6 at least. After this first day they are 4th!

Warrer/Precht getting pretty close to the Danish 49er spot after some advancement. 

Meanwhile the 49er FX race is damn close after both boats advanced. Right now Schütt/Nielsby is 2 positions in front of Baad/Thusgaard, but it's just a couple of points that need to change there for Ida and Marie to take it back. They cannot afford much more mistakes after their black flag and an 18 in the last race.

Sorry, for the stupid Question, but they have again World Championships in these disciplines? Weren't the last ones like two months ago?

yes, that was the 2019 world championship...this is the 2020 world championship...

 

as they were both awarded to Countries in the southern emisphere (and world sailing wanted the 2020 worlds before the olympics), now we have this weird situation with 2 world championships within just a couple of months (even if technically they are 2 different years)...

 

it's not the first time it happens (and I guess it won't be the last one, too)...
