F18 World Championship - Burvill and Puttman take opening race

 
Brett Burvill and Max Puttman of Australia took the opening race of the 2018 F18 World Championship in Sarasota, USA on Monday

Burvill and Puttman finished ahead of Iordanis Paschalidis and Konstantinos Trigonis of Greece, with the Dutch pair Hans and Marius Van Dam taking third.

Chasing the leaders home were Zoltan Dioszegi and Gabor Jankovics HUN in fourth, in fifth the first USA pair, Chris Tuckfield and Eric Brattinga.

And then in sixth were Mark Brunsvold and Matthew King USA, seventh Pete Melvin and Ferdinand Van West USA, with Mitch and Ruben Booth ESP taking eighth place.

Ghislain and Regis Melaine from the Whitstable Yacht Club (GBR) finished in 69th place.

Racing is scheduled to continue through Friday 19 October.
