F18 Worlds are under way...

The regatta is being held in Italy and the official site is in Italian, so news is a bit tough.

By cell phone:

First day of sailing.... 20 - 25 mph winds.... lots of capsizes and crashes, even Darren Bundock had 2 capsizes.

Total of 151 boats competing.

After day one leaders are:

1st Mitch and Herbie (Tiger)
2nd Gavin and Corie (Tiger)
3rd Greg Goodall & crew (Capricorn)
4th Jean Morniac & crew (Tiger)

Darren Bundock and Glenn Ashby taking the lead after the qualification races.

Six races have now been completed, permitting the race organisation to built up the final Gold and Silver fleets.

With 4 wins in the 6 sailed qualification races, Bundock/Ashby (AUS) are
entering the finals with 10 points, closely followed by Booth/Dercksen (NED, 13 points) and Colby/Camenish (SUI, 16 points).

9 more races remain now scheduled in order to designate the winner of the Gold fleet, competitors being sailing at the moment the first final regatta under a bright sun and perfect wind conditions.

No doubt the battle will be very close between all the contenders, the score advantage of Darren Bundock being no sufficient to make him certain to get the World title.

Day two is over at the F18 Worlds in Italy.

Still don't see any official results posted. This is a round robin format. The boats are divided into 4 groups.

Mitch Booth missed his first start... having an extra espresso, we hear. He finished the first race in 15th then followed that with a 3-1-1 to round out the day.

Current standing appear to be:

1 - Darren Bundock/Glenn Ashby (Tiger)
2 - Mitch Booth/Herbie Dercksen (Tiger)
3 - Gavin Colby/Cori Camenish (Tiger)

Darren started the regatta yesterday with two capsizes and followed that today with three bullets!

The winner of last year’s event, sailing Cirrus, to this point it appears has not been doing well. The Capricorn team, which was in the top three yesterday, had a bad day today and dropped back a bit. Sorry, no skipper and crew names were given.

Day 3 update…

Cell phone report from the beach… The fleets are divided into Gold and Silver.

2 races in the Gold fleet in 12 - 15 mph winds.

Darren Bundock is still on fire with a 1 - 2
Gavin Colby was OK with a couple top 5's
Mitch Booth had a 1 – 15’ish with a broken trapeze line in the 15th. Herbie went for a swim and took Mitch off too.

Basically, it sounded like the results are still the same top three.

Still two days to go.

Light winds with fair chop, only blowing 4 - 6 mph reported by Herbie.

Still top three are:

Bundy (1 / 2 today)
Mitch ( not sure his scores)
Gav (1 / 12)

Bundy is on fire it seems.

Link below is to Finals Day One results.

2004 F18 Worlds are over.

Reported by Herbie from the race site by cell phone is todays report:

Wind was between 6 - 8 kts (gusts maybe 12)

Booth tried to tie up Bundock in a match race. Mitch needed to have Bundock foul out twice to be able to catch him... didn't happen, as Mitch couldn't get near Bundock in the final race.

Top positions are unchanged.

Un-Official Final results:

Top four positions go to Hobie Tigers!

1st - AUS 111 BUNDOCK DARREN, ASHBY GLENN

2nd - NED 11 BOOTH MITCH, DERCKSEN HERBERT

3rd - SUI 5 COLBY GAVIN, CAMENISCH CORSIN

4th - FRA 21 MORNIAC JEAN CHRISTOPHE, CITEAU FRANCK

No further details given... We await the complete story and results from the event website. Should be up by tomorrow.
