A Crowded Start

Tornado European Championship
Vilamoura

Two races were sailed yesterday at the Tornado Europeans, Vilamoura, Portugal.
The first race got underway in 9-11 knots of breeze and very lumpy seas. Sven Karsenbarg/Mischa Heemskerk from the Netherlands won the race from Sydney Olympic Gold Medallists Roman Hagara/Hans Steinacher of Austria, with Olivier Backes/Laurent Voiron of France in third place.

A number of the top sailors were caught out for being over the start line early in race two including Hagara/Steinacher. It was a good day for the Dutch, after Mitch Booth/Herbert Dercksen scored a black flag disqualification for starting prematurely in the first race of the day, they recovered to win the second race from team mates Karsenbarg/Heemskerk, with Martin Strandberg/Kristian Matsson of Sweden in third place.

In the Open Fleet Lange and Espinola (ARG) climbed to third overall with two fourth places. Whilst Bundock and Forbes (AUS) slip to second place overall, and Backes and Voiron (FRA) have taken the lead.

Racing continues today and tomorrow.
