Enno Kramer and Ard Geelkerken – 2013 World Champions

The Flying Dutchman World Championship concluded today in Balatonföldvár. Race 8 was sailed in shifty winds and was won by NED 26, Kramer–Geelkerken securing the title in style. The Dutch team showed super consistent performance, their worst score was a fifth!

The fleet had to wait in thunderstorms for the wind to stabilize to start the final race. The end of game excitement clearly filled the air, race 9 got under way with a black flag start after four general recalls. 18 boats were disqualified for premature start, among them the Danish Bojsen–Moller brothers who had to settle for overall bronze this time. Race 9 was won by the Hungarian boat Kardos–Polgar with excellent performance.
