2016 Worlds: "Plenty (Alex Roepers, USA) won the Rolex Farr 40 world championship on Sydney’s Manly offshore course today with clever, conservative sailing for a third and a second in the last two races while his two closest opponents fell out of contention with early errors. Plenty won the 11-race series, conducted by Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron, with a total 34 points from the Australian champion Transfusion (Guido Belgiorno-Nettis) 38 and Struntje Light (Wolfgang and Angela Schaefer, Germany), 44.2. The concluding two races were sailed in a 16-18 knot nor’-easter, that raised a short chop on a moderate seaway, over four-lap windward-return courses on the offshore Manly Circle."
