The 5th B14 World Championships, hosted by Circolo Vela Torbole on Lake Garda, Italy opened with two races on Monday, July 19. Pre-event discussion was that this was as wide open a championship as the class had known with as many as eight potential champions and many teams capable of winning races. The first two races confirmed that this event will probably go down to the wire.

Day 1 06/01/03
Competitors in the Sail Melbourne B14 World Championship at McCrae Yacht Club faced a long wait on day 1 as the racing was postponed from 1230pm until almost 630pm due to lack of breeze. When it finally filled in from 1100 the fleet scrambled to get a race in before the day's end.
