Teply claims U23 Finn world title

Ondrej Teply claims U23 Finn world title after capricious Koper wind stops final races

Teply, from the Czech Republic, has won the 2018 U23 Finn World Championship for the Jorg Bruder Silver Cup after no more racing was possible on the final day in Koper, Slovenia.

Joan Cardona, from Spain, took the silver while Britain's Hector Simpson took the bronze.

The first U19 was Federico Colanino, from Italy in an impressive ninth place overall.

While the race committee tried valiantly to put on Friday’s races, the wind just was not playing the game and shifted through 120 degrees all day.

It ran almost to the time limit until they admitted defeat and sent the fleet back to the club.
