Alex Roeper’s Plenty, with Quantum’s Terry Hutchinson calling tactics, sailed an outstanding event to win by 10 points over Australian Martin Hill’s Estate MasterWolfgang Schaefer’s German entry Struntje Light, sailing with Quantum’s Jason Currie finished fourth overall. All three boats sailed with a full inventory of Quantum sails.
 
Plenty won Boat Of The Day on day one, while Struntje Light won Boat Of The Day on days two and four. Quantum-powered Farr 40s also won six of the seven races.
 
Plenty’s world championship victory can now be added to their impressive 2014 score card, including first place finishes at the North Americans, Big Boat Series, California Cup, and the overall Farr 40 season championship.
 
This was the first year that Plenty, Estate Master, and Struntje Light made the switch to Quantum Sails, and the results show a significant improvement for all three teams.
