VNR Alert: Star World Championship (Race 5) - A perfect and sunny

sailing day
Star World Championship 2017 - Day 5
Star World Championship - Day 5

Without any wind in the harbour this morning, the sailors were anxious for the race of the day.

So were the race management, and after a deep study of the weather forecast, the starting time was postponed by 1½ hour, a decision that should be rewarded.

The wind speed (and the temperature) slowly increased and stabilised around 8 to 9 knots when the race started and with only a minor change in wind direction during the race, the sailing conditions were just perfect.

After a general recall, all boats were lined up for a black flag start and the race was on.
During the final tack to the top mark, the wind direction across Lunke Bay became uneven in favour of the boats close to the coast, resulting in a tuff completion.

Race 5 result:

Rank for race 5 Crew Sail no. Nationality
1 Diego Negri / Sergio Lambertenghi 8515 Italy
2 George Szabo / Patrick Ducommen 8320 USA
3 Heiko Winkler / Uwe Thielemann 7929 Germany
Race 5 brought three new crews on the podium, but after redraw of the lowest score, the overall rank covering races 1 to 5, was identical to yesterday's rankings.

Tomorrow will be a lay off day for champion race.

As recognition to the sponsors, a show race will be organized close to the harbor, giving the spectators a good Star Boat experience.

For the winner of the show race, North Sails will offer a discount of 50% for a new set of sails.
