Sunday – ‘To race or not to race’
First expectations on Sunday were that no races could be sailed at all because a low pressure area was on top of Medemblik. Although the wind was a bit lighter with 4-7 knots, conditions were sunny and stable. “The day started well with a 3rd place and the second race with a win. In this race we were 10th at the top mark, the next round 4th and downwind we choose the other side of the course and won the race. That’s pretty good for your confidence!”
From the closest and most exciting finish to a world championship Medal Race in the Olympic history of the multihull class, Great Britain’s Ben Saxton and Katie Dabson pipped Spanish rivals Fernando Echavarri and Tara Pacheco, foiling at full speed across the finish line to win the 2017 Nacra 17 World Championship title on the French waters of the Baie d’Aigues Mortes by La Grande Motte.
