Underway at Finn World Masters

Published on May 29th, 2023

The 2023 Finn World Masters Championship on May 29 to June 2 got underway for 145 entrants from 30 nations at Nea Itaklitsa, near Kavala, in Greece.

The fleet was held ashore until just after midday and while there was a good breeze on shore, it was still building on the race area. There has been very little raceable wind for the past few days, but against all the odds, a southerly filled in at a quite stable 5-7 knots and Race 1 got away first time.

The leaders came from the left with World No.1 Laurent Hay from France rounding ahead of Portugal’s Filipe Silva and Spain’s David Terol. Not much changed downwind but on the second beat, Britain’s Nick Craig moved up to third and was right behind Silva at the top. Hay then extended for a comfortable win from Silva and Craig.

A second race was attempted but was abandoned halfway up the first beat and the fleet was towed home.
