OK World Championship
Parkstone YC, Poole

The second day of the Championship started in cloudy conditions with a somewhat erratic offshore wind below 10 knots and PRO Peter DRAKE had to contend with shifts between 270° and 310°.
After several postponements, followed by a general recall the fleet finally got away with four boats disqualified under the Black Flag rule. Danish sailor Joergen LINDHARDTSEN led for much of the race but was finally beaten into second place (by 15 seconds) by Karsten HITZ from Germany. Third and fourth places went to Nick CRAIG and Jim HUNT from Great Britain who had both pulled their way up through the fleet.

Race two of the day (Championship Race four) got under way, in a moderate breeze, with only one Black Flag start and no disqualifications. The first beat saw the interesting scenario of son and father sailors, Will and Andy TURNER, rounding the windward mark in first and fourth places respectively. They didn't manage to hold these positions although Will only lost his lead on the final beat to Nick CRAIG and Belgian Bart BOWANS. Father Andy finished in twelfth position. The PRO had to react to a late wind shift when laying the finishing line.

Results:

1 GBR 2110 Nick Craig
2 BEL 44 Bart Bomans
3 GBR 2045 Will Turner.
