Tornado World Championships video

The multiple world champion Iordanis Paschalides and his 18 year old crew Petros Konstantinidis from Greece are coming closer to the title of the world champion as after all races of the 2017 world championship they are stable at top of the overall ranking with just five points, scoring five first places and one fourth on the six races made so far.

Steady in the second place of the overall classification with 10 points remains the twin and ex European champs Nikolaos Mavros – Alexandros Tagaropoulos who was third on the first Saturday race and first in the second.

In third place overall is the German boat with Bob Baier – Marc Baier having a great date today.

Kostas Trigonis and Stavros Tavoularis made their best appearance so far in this world championship and moved to the fourth position of the general ranking after finishing in second and third place in the last two races and are now also claiming a place on the podium of the winners.

Do they have enough time?
Higher or below Dany and Petros??

What a fight for the MIXED division!

A delicious official Gala Dinner took place at “Karabourno” restaurant after Saturday’s races, while Sunday, the rest day, was ideal for the sailors to visit the “Gerovasiliou” vinery for some wine tasting and history learning before tasting some of the greek delicacies and relaxing by the sea to “Kima beach bar”.

Sunday’s rest day and an expected strong North wind for tomorrow (Monday) look challenging for all crews!
