News / Thailand Worlds Overall

5 April 2014

Christian Birrell and Sam Brearey have closed out the 2014 Fireball World Championships with one race to spare.

The day started with a three knot out going tide with four knots of wind battling into it. PRO Mike Rogers and his team elected to keep the fleet on nthe beach until the breeze settled in.

At 12pm the AP flag came down and the fleet headed out in 8 knots of breeze.

After one general recall the fleet got under way with the tide having a huge influenece. The left side was paying but the trick was to tack well under the lay line and let the tide carry you up to the mark.

Allison / Blenkle did well to lead around the first mark closely followed by Birrell and Brearey. The latter quickly took the lead down the run and were never headed.  The rest of the fleet were tightly bunched with some notable placings at the top mark. Goacher and Crossley in third, Jalina and Cameron in fifth and the Swiss in sixth.

Bachelor and Schulz were on the back foot and had to work hard to climb up through the fleet. On the second lap Bachelor movewd to second and by the third lap Schulz was up to third.

In a last ditch effort to take the title Schulz and Sheppard gybed away down the run but it backfire sending them back to fifth.

So after heat nine the top four were secured not needing to sail the last race.

Brearey and Brrell headed to the beach while Bachelor and Gordon set off for a tight battle for the last race win.

Bachelor came out in front with Gordon second and Schulz in third bringing the 2014 worlds to a close.
