The Hague Offshore Sailing World Championship

Leaders are now known in each of three classes after over 24 hours of sailing in light air off the Dutch North Sea coast

Scoring has been for a long race of 155 miles for Class A with a scoring gate at 70 miles, and a long race of 135 miles for Classes A and B with a scoring gate at 60 miles.

Thus each class has two offshore races in their results: a short race worth 1.0 points weighting and a long race worth 2.0 points weighting.

In Class A, Karl Kwok's Pac 52 Beau Geste won both races by a comfortable margin, with Tilmar Hansen's TP 52 Outsider second and the Ker 46 Van Uden youth team in third.

In Class B, Claus Landmark's Landmark 43 Santa took an early lead and was clever to hold on to it throughout the race.

Second was another Norwegian Landmark 43, Torkjel Valland's White Shadow, and third was Michael Berghorn's X-41 Halbtrocken 4.0 from Germany. All top three teams scored 1-2-3 in each of the two races.

In Class C there were different leaders in the results of each race. And overall with a six-point lead based on their scores of 6-1 is Patrik Forsgren's modified First 36.7 Pro4U (SWE).

In second is Heiko Pasler's X-362 Sport Static Electric (GER) on scores of 8-3, and currently in third is Alain Bornet's J/109 Jai Alai (NED) on scores of 5-6.
