A final review of a dramatic 2012 Rolex Farr 40 World Championship

Hosted this year at the Chicago Yacht Club, the docks were filled with several prior Farr 40 World Champions including defending champion, Guido Belgiorno-Nettis on Transfusion (AUS), and three-time winner Jim Richardson, on Barking Mad (USA). Long-time class stalwarts mixed with some returning to the class, such as Robert Hughes’ Heartbreaker (USA), Stuart Townsend’s Virago (USA), and Alek Krstajic’s, Honour (CAN), as well as first-time Worlds’ competitors: the Turkish boats, Asterisk Uno and Provezza 8, and the team of Flojito y Cooperando (on a chartered boat in Chicago), one of six Farr 40s based in Acapulco, Mexico. As well, six boats from the local Chicago-area fleet represented the class well.
