2020 IOM Oceania Regional Championship

Aussie Contingent Gearing Up for IOM Worlds

May 31, 2019

With the selection process completed, eight Australian’s are gearing up for the 2019 International One Metre Class (IOM) World Championship to be held in Porto Alegre, Brazil in November.


The eight sees the largest participation by Australian’s in a world championship for many years and includes our current Australian Champion, Sean Wallis (WA) along with his nemesis Paul Jones (NSW), who will be leading the Aussie charge in the hope of success.


A total of 76 sailors from across eighteen countries will participate in the event and will include current world champion, Zvonko Jelacic (CRO), past world champion Peter Stollery (GBR) as well as the top sailors from each individual country and our team will need to be at the top of their game as they meet the challengers for the title.

2019 IOM World Championship - Brazil final three days
Apologies for the missed reporting, but the RSAWA website had a few technical difficulties over the last few days, which I was unable to rectify. However, we are fixed now and good to go. By now, you will most likely know that Zvonko went back to back, winning the 2019 edition of the Worlds to go with his 2017 title. That is a really consistent performance. Second place went to Zvonko's teammate, Ante Kovasevic. These two were sailing Kantun 2 hulls. Rounding out the podium was our good mate Ian Vickers from NZ, who no doubt will be pleased with the performace of his new V11 design

2019 IOM World Championships - Brazil Day 3
The Championship has reached the half way mark, and tomorrow is a rest day - which by all accounts will be very welcome. The heat was on in Porto Alegra today - on and off the water. Reigning World Champion, Zvonko Jelacic made a solid move today, putting a small but solid buffer between himself and the chasing pack.

2019 IOM World Championship - Brazil Day 2
It's been said that you don't ever win a Championship on Day 1 but you sure can lose a Championship on Day 1. Getting off to a good start is the aim of all the skippers, because if you have a poor day to open your account, the catch-up may not happen. Several skippers must be feeling this way after their opening, and there must be others who are breathing a sigh of relief that they are off and running.
