news - Superb start of the Marinepool Racing Team into the Tornado Worlds!

July 26 2010

Excellent start into the Manroland Tornado World Championship by the Marinepool Racing Team.

The 2010 Manroland Tornado World Championship is held within the Travemünde Week sailing event and conditions were as good as it gets on the first day of the event. Wind strength between 3 and 5 beaufort guaranteed great pictures and spectacular sailing. The 3 scheduled races could be held as planned.

The Marinepool Racing Team demonstrated great speed and tactics and showed the rest of the 46 boat fleet that they are the teams to beat. First after day 1 is the 3fold Tornado world champion Roland Gäbler, sailing with his wife Nahid, who leads with 6 points (3, 1, 2) only one point clear of the second Marinepool Racing Team Paschalidis/Trigonis. The 2008 and 2009 European Champions finished 1,5,1 on Sunday and are in second.

The world championship - with 46 crews from 8 nations competing - will be continued today with races 4 to 6.
