Aussies still in control at Contender Worlds

The Danish wind arrived and the clouds parted to give the 107 Contender sailors perfect conditions to complete three races at the 2017 Contender Worlds.

Jesper Nielsen (DEN 2352) took the first race closely followed by Jason Beebe (AUS 2482) and fellow Dane, Jacob Kristensen.

Beebe then took control of the other two races picking up first place in both taking the overall lead from Mark Bulka, reigning World Champion.

Søderborg Yacht Club gave their thirsty guests a demonstration of the classic “Jagerbomb train trick” along with a generous BBQ to soak up their beverages.
