As far as we can tell, no one’s every abandoned a World Championship race for sharks; until yesterday, that is, when Race Committee at the Tasar Worlds spotted a 5m (16.4 foot) Great White prowling under the 122-boat fleet. With serious breeze on and plenty of capsizes, the RC sent the crews in quickly. SA Moth Worlds co-commentator Nic Douglass lies in second overall with dad Rob; she’ll miss the first day of our coverage in Sorrento and rock up on the Sunday for Day 2 – hopefully with a shiny new World Champ medal around her neck. They’ve got limited coverage of the Tasars on Facebook over here.
We couldn’t resist the title; click here for a good old belly laugh from a clip that will never get old.
