Difficult wind conditions allowed race committee to use almost all flags they have. 

Postponements, abandonments, recalls, black flags and more …. 

But at the end of the day all groups sailed one race and battle 

for the world championship title is on.




The Techno 293 OD World Championships, held this year in Brest, France, began on Saturday evening, with a colourful opening ceremony that included a parade along the seafront promenade by the 400+ competitors grouped according to the 35 countries they represent.

The event is already a record-breaker itself, as the biggest One Design contest ever held !


The serious racing got underway today in light to moderate winds.
