Match Racing: Women's World Championship

The women's match racing world championships were again greeted by light
and testing conditions on Tampa Bay.

Due to the light conditions which has made keeping the event schedule on
track difficult the 3rd round robin has been eliminated. Also eliminated
were 8 teams. 8 teams remain racing.

Group A saw a 3 way tie between teams skippered by defending world champion
Dorete Jesne, American Hannah Swett and Bermudan Paula Lewin. All won
6 of 7 races. The 4th skipper to advance was Katie Spithill of Australia.

Eliminated from this group were American Dru Slattery who is ranked 9th, and
Carolin Eglin 4th ranked from Great Britain.

Group B was won by Gold Medallist Shirley Robertson.  2nd was Marie Bjorling, with Klaartje Zuiderbaan 3rd and Besty Alison 4th.

Among those eliminated were Cristine Briand and Amy Waring of New Zealand.

The 8 remaining teams will sail another round robin today.  The top 4 scores advance to the semi finals.

The forecast for racing looks more promising with 10-15 knots of north wind expected.

Special Photo Series: Dredging Season

While the recreational fleet is out of the water, preparation for season 2001 is beginning.  With continued low water marinas are being dredged.  Pictured here is dredging at Port Sherman a small basin on the east side of the Muskegon Channel.  This was formerly a harbor where commercial fishing boats docked.

The Race: Code 1 Qualifying voyage

The maxi maran co-skippered by Loick Peyron and Skip Novak left Marseiiles France yesterday on her 2500 mile qualifying voyage.  Completion of this voyage will qualify Code 1 for The Race.

According to Loick Peyron conditions should test Club Med.  Peyron says, "This will be the crucial phase of the voyage. We are expecting high winds and difficult seas."

Code 1 is carrying 10 crew.  This is part of an experiment to see if they can sail with less crew and therefore less weight than sisterships Club Med and Team Adventure.

The voyage should take a long business week of 5 or 6 days to complete.
