Roland and Nahid Gaebler Crowned 2010 Tornado World Champions
Fantastic races on day 4, and last, of the Worlds. The Greeks Iordanis Paschalides and Konstantinos Trigonis were the stars of the day with 3 brilliant bullets. But unfortunately not enough to pass the Germans on the scoreboard. They finish a mere 1 point behind and secured the 2nd place overall. Third were German brothers Helge and Christian Sach.
The wind started light and remained so for the first race of the day. The Race Officer held the boats until the wind built before starting the 2nd race. Greeks Danny Paschalides and Kostas Trigonis were on fire but the German couple Roland and Nahid Gaebler were always close behind.
In the 3rd race the wind swung by 40 degrees but the Race Officer was still able to continue by changing the course. By the end of the race the wind had filled in with the rain and was blowing 25 knots. There was some great high speed downwind action on the last leg with some competitors getting their best results.
This is the first time in the Tornado history that a mixed team won a World title.
