No Germans made it to the podium in their home 5O5 Worlds at Kiel this week, with 5-time world champ Dr. Wolfgang Hunger stuck in fourth.  Longtime SA’er Mike Holt has been close to winning a 5O5 Worlds for years, and a masterful performance with crew Rob Woelfel included taking the final bullet this morning to take their first World Championship by just two points.  Nice shot at the finish from Christophe Favreau, with a big gallery of pics here, and lots of video and replays at the event site.  UPDATE/EDIT:  The good Doctor Wolfgang has indeed squeaked into a final podium spot with a 3rd in the final race, making much of our report above wrong.  Our apologies for the false info; that’s what happens when your communications staff thinks the whole world gets their news from Facebook and forgets to update the event site for half a day…

More from Craig at the 5O5 North Americans in Santa Cruz, with thanks to John Navas for the photo.  Results here.

Today we had three races sailed in a southwesterly breeze that ranged from 6-10 knots. The conditions were atypical for this venue, but provided some great tactical racing that was fair and challenging. Holding lanes was critically important and the teams that kept their boats powered up and in the best pressure ended the day on top.

Two teams delivered standout performances; Howie Hamlin and Andy Zinn in USA 9080 and Augie DIaz and Fritz Lanzinger in USA 8808 ended the day with all top three finishes and all three race wins between them. Particularly impressive was in Race 2 when Howie and Andy hit the gate launch at the start, did a 360 to exonerate their penalty, and recovered to finish second in the race!

After racing, a competitor’s de-brief was held on the SCYC deck where the top finishers from the day led a discussion about what they were doing to get their boat around the course the fastest. One the best things about sailing in the 505 class is the open sharing of information and the ability for teams in the middle to back of the fleet to be able to ask questions of the top teams. This allows new sailors in the class to be able to get up to speed quicker and have more fun on the race course.

The forecast is for Day 2 is again on the lighter side, but the weekend should deliver a classic Santa Cruz thermal. Stay tuned as the series continues through the weekend.

Long time Anarchist Beau “Bangin’ the Corners” Outteridge did some of his usual wizardry with this dismasting from the Aussie 5O5 Nationals.  Beau’s brilliant when it comes to creative media and marketing; if you’re looking to help your Aussie or Kiwi event get some exposure, hit him up via LinkedIn here.  More info on the Aussie 5-Ohs here.  Title hits up the 80s for inspiration.
