August 18, 2009: RUNGSTED, DENMARK - - Denmark is set once again to be inundated with Olympic medallists and World champions, as next week racing starts at the 470 World Championship, off Rungsted Harbour.
The start gun for the opening races, to be held off the harbour, 25km north of Copenhagen, will be on Sunday 23 August, culminating in Medal Races for the men’s and women’s fleets on Saturday 29 August.
A fiercesome line-up is expected. In the men’s division, Skandia Team GBR’s Nic Asher and Elliot Willis return to defend their title, won at Sail Melbourne last year by a slender 0.8 points from Portugal’s Álvaro Marinho and Miguel Nunes. The duo were also World Champions in the class in 2006.
