Formula 18 World Championship 2005
Hoek van Holland, Rotterdam, Netherlands

All competititors had to deal with light shifting winds and face a strong current during the first day of the final series in the Formula 18 World Championship in Hoek van Holland, Rotterdam, Netherlands.
Race seven proved the most critical for a large number of sailors, as only 26 competitors succeeded in finishing within the time limit in the gold fleet and 16 in the silver fleet.

Even overnight leaders Darren BUNDOCK and Glenn ASHBY (AUS) only managed to place 35 in race nine, allowing Remco KENBEEK and Paul BROUWER (NED) to take the lead. Helge SACH and Christian SACH (GER) have sailed the most consistent series so far and lie in third place, just a point behind BUNDOCK and ASHBY.

The mixed crew of Reindert-Jan VAN DER MEULEN and Carina KNOL (NED) had a great day yesterday scoring two bullets and moving up to fourth place overall.
