IFR - 2000

The Millenium IFR

Hoorn - The Netherlands

Race Report & Results

 

The 18th International Friendship Rally benefited from a very keen and well fought racing regatta. There were two classes, Racing and Cruising. The races were held over two days with two races on each day. All four races were included for the final positions in each class but each Vega was able to discard one race. The wind was NW on the first day and rose to F6 which caused a few uplifting moments. The second day proved to be much calmer with F3, again NW being the norm.The seas were still a little bumpy for the first race but the wind, sun and sea proved a great backdrop for some fantastic racing in both classes. Luckily Southern Comfort stayed at the back of the fleet (on both days) to take some fantastic pictures of the whole fleet on a run (that's my excuse and I am sticking to it!!!).
