The ORC Worls Champinship has now started in Tallinn, Estonia and there are overall 104 boats from 12 countries competing in three classes. Half of the boats, 62, are racing in our class C that is the most competitive class.
The long Offshore race was around 140 nm started on Monday morning and we sailed for a total of 22.5 hours. Due to the large size of the C fleet it was divided in two heats and we managed to finish in second place in our heat. See results for the race here. The total results can be seen here
We are happy with the result and having a low score in the Offshore races will be important for the total as these races cannot be discarded in the total for the World Championship.
The race from us was far from perfect and and there are several things we could have done better but some things we also did very well.
But if gives a good feeling that in spite of not sailing a perfect race we still managed to score a second place and we are very much looking forward to the rest of the Worlds. Tomorrow the plan is to sail two inshore races and and overall 8 races are planned.
