Johnny and Erika Heineken win the 2012 Course Racing World Championships in great style

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

After four days of full-on racing, John and Erika Heineken take the 2012 world titles in course racing in great style.

After two days of qualifying series races and the final race series day, the last day of the 2012 Course Racing World Championships provided gusty offshore winds in the range of 5 to 20 knots. The race committee had a hard time to set a fair course and had to go approximately 2.5 kilometers offshore to place the starting line for the medal race course

The top 10 men and women respectively qualified to compete in this medal race series, with the first race “virtually” pre-scored from the position in the final series. Mens overall leader Johnny Heineken (USA, Ozone/Mikes Lab) was not too stoked about having his earlier stages performance shrunked into a one point lead over second placed Riccardo Leccese (ITA, Ozone/Mikes Lab) and third ranked Adam Koch (USA, Ozone/Mikes Lab), who came back strong after the first qualifying series days.
