A fantastic test event to prove that catracing is not all about corner banging. An event held in The Netherlands, the home of beach cats; the Bolster F18 Teamrace knockout proved to be a fantastic viewing event for spectators in grandstands as well as online. This style of event coverage is still in the learning stages but the innovation is developing quickly.
The event comprised of 4 teams of 2 F18 Catamarans. These top sailors all have different positions of the class as teamriders, designers, brand managers and olympic stars. The fleet was stacked with the likes of Carolijn Brouwer, Merel Witteveen, Gunnar Larsen, Mischa Heemskerk, Remco Kenbeek in attendance. 2 on 2 teamracing is crowd pleasing as the style is simple to follow. Last boat loses!
In the end it was the reigning champs from 2011 who took the title once again. Congratulations to Mischa Heemskerk, Bastiaan Tentij, Thijs Visser and Matthieu Marfang.
