Quite A Bit Less Speedy Freaks

  Quite A Bit Less Speedy

Heavy rain showers cooled down the fresh winds during the first day of
the Tutima J80 Worlds on Kiel Bight. In between wind speed decreased a bit, but the wind came
back punctually for the third race. Finally four races were sailed in
at least best conditions. The courses were dominated by the crews from
Spain, at the end Ignacio Camino Rodriguez (ESP) and his crew took the
lead in front of Javier Padron (ESP). The British team of Kevin Sproul
achieved the third place. J-Boats designer and maybe the first J80 sailor
in the world at all Jeff Johnstone from the US came in fourth and showed
how well he knows his ‘own’ boat.
