Convexity defends M32 World title
Published on November 21st, 2021
Miami, FL (November 21, 2021) – Don Wilson’s Convexity won the 2021 M32 World Championship, defending his title over ten other teams in the 18 race series. Entering today with a 25 point lead, Convexity remained dominant in the 6 to 22 knot winds, sealing the win after three of the final six races.
Team Catapult, driven this week by Anthony Kotoun, finished second. Catapult is usually driven by Joel Ronning, but the rest of the team stepped up to fill his absence. “There are some incredible teams here that are well polished and extremely talented and to be able to come and mix it up with them is a wonderful thing,” said Kotoun.
The comeback story of the regatta was Inga From Sweden. “This is my best result ever at any Worlds. I am very happy,” said skipper Richard Goransson.
Goransson finished second at the US Nationals in October, but had an inauspicious start to the World Championships, finding himself in only 6th place after the first day. His team consistently chipped away over the course of the regatta, gaining places every day to finish third overall. “Convexity is a step ahead of us still, but that’s not going to last forever,” he said.
Racing was held on November 18-21.
