Annemiek van Kinderen reports from the Aruba Heineken Catamaran Regatta

Friday November 15th 2002, Author: Annemiek van Kinderen, Location: United Kingdom
After a day of rest yesterday. All the sailors were keen to sail the races of today. John Moret and Nico Harrewijn took the first place in the morning race. Followed by Richard Allen with crew James Hoad. The third place was for Mike Smith and Ian Wild in their Dart 18. The leading Tornado sailors Xander Pols and Mark Zwart had to abandon the race with boat damage.

Unfortunately Rob Klootwijk and Arie van de Plas didn’t sail today because Rob broke his leg celebrating their second place of Tuesday’s racing. Rob had surgery in the Hospital and seems okay. He is very disappointed that the races are over for him and Arie, especially because they were doing so well.

This afternoon a long distance race was held. The catamarans went down the cost to the south end of the island along beautiful white beaches. The couple Ashley and Julia Machin from Britain took the first place with their Hurricane 5.9. Second Richard Allen and James Hoad came in just before John Moret and Nico Harrewijn.
