Interdominion Championships 2002

Napier / New Zealand

To Results

January 5 - 11

73 competitors out of ten nations competed for the interdominion championships this year in Napier. Most of them sailed in all the seven races to prepare for the worlds, which will take place in the following week in the same area. In light winds the Europeans had some problems getting used to the high swell and shifty winds. One of the best from Europe was again Jørgen Lindhardsen, who finished 5th, but the dominating team was New Zealand with many youngsters including Alister Gair, who became the new National and Interdominion champion. He started to sail the OK Dinghy only a few weeks before the competition after being a very successful Laser sailor, but lost interest in that class nevertheless. The defending world champion Karsten Hitz from Germany finished 16th and is still hoping for a stronger breeze at the worlds.
A common and often used phrase was: "stay out of the focus!"
It will be interesting to see wether the kiwis boys can use their advantage on home waters again...
