Wollmanns finish eighth in New Zealand
Cecilia and Michael Wollmann finished a creditable eighth out of 20 boats in the Nacra 15 Open Class at the Aon Youth Sailing World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand.
The siblings battled it out with eventual winners Tim Mourniac and Charles Dorange, of France, in the last of the 13 races, finishing second while Mourniac and Dorange capped off a good week of sailing by winning their fourth race.
Other than a disqualification in the second race, the French pair never finished lower than third to finish on 45 points.
The Wollmanns were in contention early in the series after winning the second race. The brother and sister finished with 127 points.
Romain Screve and Ian Brill, of the United States, finished second overall and Belgium’s Henri Demesmaeker and Isaura Maenhaut third.
Campbell Patton, of Bermuda, ended his competition in the Laser Radial class with a series-best finish of tenth in the ninth and final race to place 30th overall out of 57 boats.
Finnian Alexander, of Australia, was the Laser Radial winner with 103 points, having already clinched the win before yesterday’s nineteenth place finish, his lowest of the week after four straight wins in races four to seven. Alexander finished six points ahead of Paolo Giargia, of Italy, while Carrson Pearce, of the US, was third with 90 points.
