Cornelia & Ruedi CHRISTEN win the World Championships
The Swiss couple Christen/Christen won the Tempest Worlds 2014 on Lake Como (Italy). It was the first time that a helmswoman has beaten all other competitors. After having finished 3. (2012) and 2. (2013), the Christens now topped their results from previews years.
The Tempest is celebrating the 50th year since Ian Proctor built the first Tempest for the Olympic trials and is still a great boat to race and have fun in.
The Tempest is a one design two man high performance keelboat with a trapeze. It was designed by Ian Proctor for the 1965 trials for the new Olympic Keelboat, which it won convincingly.
The class has since progressed with the times, including a new deck and cockpit layout and changing the construction from GRP to a foam sandwich. In the last few years the rules have allowed a bigger spinnaker, longer spinnaker pole and the use of epoxy resin in the construction of the hull.
