Peter de RIDDER was one of the boats with a BFD, but he recovered well from the self-proclaimed early disaster to win the last two races. Their plan was to get to the right side of the course after the front passed through and it paid off for their well-practiced crew.
The final two races of the World Championship will be raced in similar conditions today, with more moderate wind forecast. The winner will
take home the 100 year old Royal Canadian Yacht Club trophy until the next Worlds, which will be in Miami Beach, Florida on November 8-11, 2006.
