Team of youngsters on IMMAC One4All wins Corinthian ORC World Title and scores 6th over all
The crew of young sailors on IMMAC One4All showed their very best sailing during the ORC World Championship in Kiel (GER) from August 4th to 9th 2014. The youngsters coached and skippered by project leader Kai Mares pulled off their greatest coup so far: the team sailed to an impressive 6th in the scores and won the Corinthian World Title.
Who would have bet on them before the ORC Worlds? The crew at an average age on only 21 years played cat and mouse with many of the higher rated professional sailing teams and impressively beat most of them. Their reward was a top ranking and the highly coveted trophy for the best amateur team in offshore sailing. Crew Hendrik Arendt was enthusiastic about the success: „We finished the ORC Worlds as the best German and best non-professional sailing team. We were not expecting to do so well and are very, very proud and happy with the result. Our aim for the season was achieved and now we will celebrate. The whole crew looks back to two very intense weeds. Our thanks go to all our supporters and sponsors who were backing us all the way to here.“
In the final ranking list of the ORC-A scoring the team came 6th out of 27 teams, an absolute top result, especially considering that the crew of young sailors has sailed together for only 6 months. With a new record fleet of 150 teams from 19 nations, the event in Kiel was the larges ORC World Championship of all times. Yachts sailed in three different classes ORC A, B and C) according to their measurement certificates. Seven up and down races and two mid distance offshore races were scored.
