Bundock & Forbes Tornado World Championships

by Rob Kothe on 18 Feb 2001
Olympic Silver medallists, Darren Bundock & John Forbes dominated the Tornado Wworld Championships with 7 wins from 9 races.

The Sydney Gold Medallists sails into second place with a consistent display, however its clear that had conditions in the Sydney regatta been heaver then the Australians would have taken the Gold medal.

The British pairing of Styles and May just held out Mitch Booth and his Dutch partner. Their OCS on Day 4 cost them dearly.

News from Richards Bay continues to be sparse with the official website still having no results posted past race 6. Sail-world will provide more news as soon as possible.

The final placings were

1- BUNDOCK-FORBES AUS 12 PT
2- HAGARA-STIENACHER AUT 23PT
3- STYLES-MAY GBR 26PT
4- BOOTH-DERCKSEN NED 27PT
5- HAGARA- SEIDL AUT 40PT
6- POLGAR-STRUCKMAN GER 47PT
