With temps hitting 100 on the dock yesterday and humidity near max, it’s likely at least one trimmer will burst into flame at some point during this week’s Farr 30 Worlds in Newport RI. Will past SCOTY Deneen Demourkas take her third consecutive World title despite not having set foot in the boat since Sweden last year? Will T Hutch finally bring the elusive title to a long-suffering Jim Richardson and Barking Mad? Will 2009 M32 World Champ and perennial shit-stirrer Pieter Taselaar surprise everyone on his home turf? Or will German light-air specialist Dr. Harald Bruening – the only Euro team here – take out the big dogs?
