2010 IFDS 2.4mR World Championship
An unbelievably exciting sailing day in Medemblik with ‘fireworks’ in all classes. Fantastic weather, and , at last, good wind varying from 20 – 30 knots. The best conditions you can wish for the last day of this Worlds. In all classes all options were still open since the lead pack sailors were so narrow in points.
Thierry Schmitter was at his best with this wind. He sailed two fabulous races today and crossed the finishline as first in both races.
Heiko Kroger fought back like a tiger, great as well , after the todays first race was still one point ahead of Thierry. After a rocket start of Thierry in the second race nothing could stop him from winning anymore and he could prolong his second World title in succession.
Silver for Heiko Kroger (GER) , Bronze for Megan Pascoe (GBR) who also sailed an excellent Worlds by constantly sailing in the leading fleet. Canadian Paul Tingley was 4th overall and Damien Sequin (RA) 5th.
