IC Worlds on Hold

IC Worlds rigging area
International Canoe
With the minimum five heats completed the International Canoe Worlds are official. Perhaps just as well as strong winds have kept the fleets ashore again at MacCrae YC.

With 22-27 knots blowing, which is over the 10m/s class rule, the three fleets were all kept on the shore under the AP until 17:00 for the last signal.

Three races remain of the World series.

The Australians have officially issued a challenge for the 'International Challenge Cup' (the second oldest trophy is sailing, to the America's Cup) and the defending nation Great Britain has accepted the challenge.

Three Australian boats will go head to head in a best of three series with three British boats, with only the first nation's boat across the finish line counting, to see who will hold the Cup until Germany in 2011.

Racing will take place on the 7 January 2008 off the waters of McCrae on Port Phillip Bay.
