Contender Worlds - Practice race to Jono Neate

Following on from the International Contender Australian Nationals, sailed as the pre-worlds event, the World Championships get underway Sunday 21 January.

Final Nationals Race

The defending Contender World Champion Jason Beebe topped the all Aussie Nationals podium, finishing five points clear of Jono Neate with Mark Bulka in third place.

The 2018 iSail World Championship practice race at the McCrae Yacht Club on Saturday was a more relaxed affair.

Just 16 crews completing the race, won by Jono Neate, with Clay Cook second and Andrea Bonezzi third.

Nick Noble, Rob Smith and Richard Franks keeping the British flag flying.

With the Melbourne weather looking more settled for the week after a blistering 40+ degrees followed by a cool change on Saturday, the cool southerly breeze looks to hold with forecasts of between 10 – 20 knots for the afternoon each day.

It’s going to be close with 90 boats and 6 World Champions on the course, don’t miss a minute.
