Ignacio Camino Rodriguez and his "Nextel engineering" Crew took
the J/80 World title despite the fact that the Spanish crew was black flagged in the last race.

J80 in a Worlds, the president of the J80 – Class, Jeff Johnstone, sailed

day wins and further rankings in front. Thanks to Hermann Hell for the
