Melges 24 World Championships
I sailed with Kim Christensen and his team of Peter Jakobsen and Jesper Jespersen on DEN 782, "Soffe 2" at the M24 World Championships in San Francisco last week. We had no time to train or practice and the 1st time that we actually sailed together was the practice race. We managed to win this and after a fantastic weeks racing we won the Bronze medal clinching 3rd overall within the last 100m of the final race in a thrilling showdown which saw Brian Porter and his team on Full Throttle win the Championships. Many thanks to Kim, Peter, Jesper and "Coach" Renee for a great week in San Francisco.
