J/24 Worlds at Cannigione, Sardinia - Overall

by Chris McLaughlin 13 Jun 2008 17:02 BST 8-13 June 2008

Casale wins 2008 World Championship

At the J24 World Championship in Cannigione, Sardinia, Friday 13th lived up to its reputation.

It was a lucky day for the 2008 World Champion, Andrea Casale and the team of Fiamma Gialla, back on the water after a collision repair. But not so lucky for Canadian, Rossi Milev, sailing Class Chairman, Bob Turner's boat, Serco Headcase or Britain's Ian Southworth, sailing Inmarsat Hedgehog! Both crews were looking to attack the leader's points margin in the two final races but it was not to be.

The day started with Mistral winds at 28 mph building to 40 mph. Sadly there has been no racing today and overnight positions remain unchanged.

Milev of Canada is second with Southworth of Great Britain third.

Comments Class Chairman Bob Turner: "we have enjoyed bringing together a British boat, with British preparation, to partner our Canadian friend to a well deserved result. We congratulate Andrea Casale on a well deserved win".

As in Melbourne in 2006, Ian Southworth and crew have had to settle for third place when racing was abandoned due to high winds.

Said Ian, "We have equalled our best position to date and have learned from tactical errors. We are delighted to be the first British-helmed boat and congratulate Andrea on a well-deserved win whilst remaining in awe of Bob Turner's crew meteorologist and of Rossi's consistent quality sailing!"

Lucy MacGregor and her all ladies crew finished 17th overall, winning the Ladies Jaeger Trophy, a quite outstanding result. Recording the second best boat helmed by a UK skipper at her first J24 World Championship finishing nearly 100 points ahead of the next ladies team in a fleet of 76 boats. They were in a boat loaned to them by Roger Morris, the Poole J24 Fleet Captain. This could be the highest an all ladies team has ever finished at a J24 World Championships, a truly great result, well done to Lucy and her team.

The 2009 World Championship will be held next May in Annapolis, Maryland, USA.

Overall Results: (8 races, 1 discard)
