Rolex IMS Offshore World Championships
Three leading contenders in the small-boat division of the Rolex IMS Offshore World Championship 2001 have seriously damaged their chances of victory in Valencia after disqualifications for being over the line on the first day.
Double Olympic Champion Luis Doreste thought he had completed an excellent day's racing with a 2,1 scoreline. When the helmsman of Telepizza-Pepsi discovered that he had been disqualified and his race win annulled, he was not pleased.
