Dutch Athens 2004 sailors Booth and Dercksen go head to head in Tornado Worlds

Tornado World Championship - Dutch Athens 2004 sailors Booth and Dercksen go head to head in Tornado Worlds
BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA-(4-12-2006) Mitch Booth and Herbert Dercksen will go head to head today during the first race of the Tornado Worlds. Its all on for the former team mates from Holland. Support of the Dutch Sailing Federation, Dutch Olympic Committee and title sponsor Zwitserleven are at stake.

All set for the 48 boats competing at the 2006 Tornado World Championship in San Isidro, Argentina. 48 Tornados from 20 Nations have finished Registration and Measurement for the 2006 Tornado World Championship that is taking place at the Club Nautico San Isidro, San Isidro, Argentina.

But Dercksen and Booth can expect more quality competition - nothing less than 13 Olympic Medallists and 10 World Champions are going to compete for the 2006 World title. Herbert Dercksen, now sailing with Mischa Heemskerk and Mitch Booth with crew Pim Nieuwenhuis need to finish within the top eight to secure the funding of the Federation. Next to that Zwitserleven will continue sponsoring the one team that clearly outperforms the other.

The Practice Race, sailed yesterday, had good weather conditions: a sunny day with ENE 10-12 knots wind. Herbert Dercksen and Mischa Heemskerk did not start well but managed to sail through the fleet to the 13th place.

Dercksen said, We are ready and looking forward to this. We have done all we can to prepare ourselves in the short time available. I feel quit confident that we do well in strong winds. But so will Mitch. Curious to see what will happen in the lighter stuff.
