2022 505 World Championship at the Royal Cork Yacht Club - Overall

by Jordan Spencer 13 Aug 17:12 BST 3-13 August 2022

Finally, after all the frustration the 505 Worlds finish in brochure conditions...

The final day again dawned with no wind and again the wind filled in from the NE out to sea. Today the conditions were even better than yesterday with the wind filling in slightly stronger and holding for longer. Nearly all racing was conducted in 10-12 maybe 14kn of wind. Late in the day it did move slightly right and start to fade, but by then boats were turning onto their last upwind of the final race.

Three races again were conducted today allowing seven races in total and bringing a discard into play.

The first race of the day (R5) looked like there could be some movement ahead for the leader board. McNay & Payne were seventh and Batchelor & Pascoe third. The winners were Jan-Philipp Hofmann & Felix Brockerhoff in a tight battle with Roger Gilbert & Ben McGrane. Peter Nicholas & Luke Payne were part that trio, but on the last run they went furthest to the left when a little righty came down the centre of the course dropping them to sixth. The German pair of Hofmann & Brockerhoff looked like they could move up to third overall.

The second race of the day (R6) was a return to form for McNay & Payne, but Batchelor & Pascoe were a little deep. Nicholas & Payne were again near the front and this time would make no mistake finishing second. Former champions Mike Holt & Adam Lowry emerged from the forest they had been lost in all regatta to give us a flash of brilliance to pick up third.

And the final race (R7), well it was an exhibition really. McNay & Paine just sailed away from the fleet. It was impressive! In second was the other form boat Batchelor & Pascoe with third going to Mike Martin & Adam Lowry.

In the post-race interview, (see the 505 website) McNay & Paine shared their glory with their coach.

The two lead boats were identical packages. Brand new Ovington V2 hulls, Pinnell and Bax sails and Superspar M2 masts.

Next year the Worlds return to the US West Coast in Santa Cruz and given the size of the US fleet here in Cork, it should be a great success.

Results, race highlights and updates can be found on the event website.
