Kendall In Lead At World Champs

Kendall In Lead At World Champs

2003 ISAF World Championships
11 - 25 September 2003
Bay of Cadiz, Spain


In blustery conditions with an average windspeed of 18-20 knots and gusts upto 30 knots, racing was delayed on day four of the ISAF World Championships with the Star class racing eventually being called off for the day.

Defending World Champion Boardsailor Barbara Kendall made the most of the conditions with a 2nd and 1st place for the two races held. In the later race she was first off the start-line dominating the entire race to notch up a convincing win in the world-class 60 competitor fleet. Coach Shane Bright attributed her performance to, "years of experience paying off".

In the men's Mistral event, world ranked No. 2, Jon-Paul Tobin is in 7th place overall after a 2nd and 7th result in the much larger fleet1 entries)
