IMS Offshore World Championship – Day 1

As the Stars were halfway through their first race today, so the larger keelboats set sail on the first race of the IMS Offshore World Championship, forming the other half of Rolex Baltic Week. Separate starts took place for the two IMS Divisions, who today race their offshore race, an overnighter of 116 miles for the 26 yachts in division one and 90 miles for the 24 in division two.
