Light winds allow for one race at Tasar Worlds

Published on January 5th, 2015

Busselton, Australia (January 5, 2015) – The second day of the Tasar World Championship was dealt a light north westerly “sea breeze” which started to fade late in the first race. Although it was light conditions, the flat water allowed for some good boat speed with some big gaps between the leading boats. The big fleet of 120 teams ensures there is congestion at most marks and resulted in quite a few protests.

First place went to Chris Dance and Peter Hackett from Victoria, Australia, on “Doppio”. In second place were Rob and Nicole Douglass from New South Wales, Australia, on “Coolit”. Third place went to Philip Gordon and Nick Hubbard from the USA on “Radicchio”.

The second race of the day was postponed to another day, due to the breeze fading out to calm hot conditions. The series leader after the three races is Chris Dance and Peter Hackett from Australia.

Racing continues through January 9. Event websiteComplete results
