Paul Cayard: 40th year racing Stars, crewing in the Worlds with son Danny

Monday, July 3, 2017

TROENSE, DEN – The 2017 Star World Championship kicked off today with the first race in 15-23 knots of wind and cloudy skies. The conditions got a bit gusty as the race progressed and 7 boats lost their masts. Unfortunately for us, we were one of them. We submarined near the end of the second downwind leg and the mast simply imploded. Yes, that is expensive. I am crewing for my son Danny [Cayard] who is racing in his first Star World Championship.  It is fantastic to have the opportunity to be together in this race. This is my 40th year racing Stars and to sail with my son, in his first World Championship, is an opportunity not to be missed. His grandfather Pelle Petterson, World Champion in 1969 arrived today to support the team.  Pelle bought dinner tonight proclaiming we had already spent too much money for the day. Paul Cayard writing on his Cayard Sailing Blog this evening. Full story.
