Published on August 11th, 2015
Pwllheli, Wales (August 11, 2015) – Despite best efforts, no racing was held at the 2015 Zhik 29er World Championship. After two windy days, what little breeze was forecasted today never settled to anything raceable for the 193 teams.
Today was the final day of qualifying so the results stand with James Wilson/Oscar Gunn (NZL) and Juho Kotiranta/Akseli Keskinen (FIN) tied for first after seven races with both teams carrying five firsts and 1 second. Tam Lindsay/William McKenzie (NZL) are lurking just 2 points behind with Chris Williford/Wade Waddell (USA) trailing by one more point. British National champs James Grummett/Daniel Budden (GBR) round out the top 5.
As of this update (1800 UTC), protests continue to be heard to finalize the final flights for gold, silver & bronze fleets, which will be posted in the morning.
Finals begin tomorrow for 3 days with the prizegiving on the final day, August 14.
