Royal St. George's George Miller is lying ninth overall at the vintage yachting Games in Copenhagen while Mark Delany is 12th after one race sailed.
It must be remembered that when the International 12–foot dinghies competed in the Olympic Games in 1920, they raced off Ostend on a huge course more suited to the 12 metre and 6 metre yachts. The wind and tide conditions were such that the event could not be completed within the allocated time. In those days all the 12 footers raced with a crew of two.
Today at the Royal Danish Yacht Club and Hellerup Sailing Club, the 19 competitors could decide if they would sail with a crew of one or two crew.
In race one, on 18th September the wind was blowing about 22 knots in strong sunshine and flat water, and the racing was dominated by the experienced Dutch teams.
The racing was interesting as the boats which had two crew performed better upwind, while the single-handed boats did best downwind.
