The 2013 Nacra 17 World Championships got underway today but just one of two (split) fleets completed their races. Gemma Jones and Jason Saunders have made an encouraging start with a 7th and a 3rd on the water, they are placed 2nd in the standings.The sailing conditions were difficult as the wind started to die out.
Despite spending hours on the water those in the yellow fleet including kiwi crews Nicole van der Velden & Tomer Simhony and Gareth Moore & Vickery Francis are yet to record any race results.
