Racing in the 2009 2.4mR World Championships begins Monday in the Caloosahatchee River at Fort Myers, Florida. Forty-five competitors will take part in the event, hosted by the Edison Sailing Center. The World Championship comes on the heels of last week’s 2009 2.4mR National Championships in the same location, providing competitors a "tune-up" for the Worlds.
In the three day National competition, after eight races, only a four-point spread separated the top three finishers: Terry Schmitter of the Netherlands in first place, Hans Aukland of Sweden in second and Peter Norlin of Sweden in third.
This week’s 2009 2.4mR World Championship is scheduled for five days of racing, ending Friday.
