The 5.5m IC Worlds that were held in the waters of Curacao were a great success with fantastic winds and waves under blue skies. The competition was very tight until the last race.
Winner Markus Wieser (GER) managed to squeeze into the gold medal position, just ahead of Kristiaan Nergaard (NOR) who was leading the series most of the time. Place three was secured by Petter Fjeld (NOR).
For the first time a full female team participated at the 5.5m IC Worlds. AHOsailing is proud of Marjon Kooistra, Chantal Govaerts and Alexandra Siebels who accomplished to stand strong between a field of big male sailors. These 5.5 Worlds were also the first time AHO was present. The other AHO team consisted of Sergey Boer, Erik Albers, Gareth Weber/Kevin van Otterdijk.
AHOsailing is proud of the organizers and Race Management, who have put together a flawless event. With this event three World Championships have been organised in the AHOsailing territories over the last 24 month.
