Sunfish Worlds 1970 report

** work in progress %%

Carl Knight, the 1969 Sunfish North American champion, started the series strong with a 5th and 6th place. But after race 3 he was protested for a start line incident, resulting in a DSQ. In the remainder 3 races he scored another 2 DNF’s: “I bought and wore two sweat shirts for hiking weight which most local sailors wore.  I capsized twice and couldn’t right the boat.  I didn’t know to cut the sleeves off the wet shirts.  Every effort to reach up to the capsized rail with heavy soaked sleeves forced me out of reach under the water.  A wrenched back ended my misery.”.
