Anarchist
Pussy Galore checks in again from the International 14 Worlds.

It will be a Hard Days Night for the Int14
sailors
in Travemuende which had to abandon racing due to technical
difficulties today… We heard about lots of carnage, broken masts and
other expansive carbon crap. Warnemuende presented today hardcore gusts
up to 30+ knots which forced 2/3 of the fleet to get back in. Even for
some of the top teams the world championship turned into survival mode
when wind and waves asked for real excellence. At least 60 teams made
it to the start but after all only 31 made to the finish line.

Lindsay Irwin came in in second position today after having retired
from yesterday’s race having missed the last mark when hoisting already
the kite at the top mark without passing the spreader mark. Another
proof for the fairness in the big high tech fleet as Irwin immediately
retired after hitting the beach. Overall leader is still British Int14
Pilot Archie Massey (GBR 1519) taking seventh place today. Actual german
champion Oli Voss came in 14th position today. Famous british boat builder
and Int14 sailor Chris Turner sailing with Adam Ovington finished today
in 10th place taking place 20 in the overalls. Still the top ten are
ruled by british and australian sail numbers.

Tomorrow there will even be more wind so we can be sure to get even
more spectacular images from Warnemuende. For further results check:

Stay tuned,
Your Pussy!
