3alfaMantis-Kagialisplatu25World Championship

Kostas Karageorgiou’s “Modus Vivendi-3Alfa” won back the World title in the waters of Alicante

The Greek boat was crowned Champion after six days of fierce competition. The sailors coming from Greece, who got the sceptre in 2008 and Silver in 2009, were undoubtedly the best and more consistent team suffice to say that they won with a race to spare. In which, nonetheless they ended up in sixth.
Numbers don't lie, their score is impressive with three victories, a third, two sixth, two seventh and an eleventh as their worst. Their consistency was apparent in any of the thirteen races and sometimes their superiority did not leave any chance to their opponents.
The rest of the podium is an all Spanish affair with “Carpantxo” owned by Jesús Pintos getting the Silver while “Iberdrola” helmed by Manu Weiller the Bronze.
The satisfaction is great, as Kostas Karageorgiou confirmed: “Yes we won again. We have already conquered the World title in 2008 in Greece and we arrived second in Punta Ala last year. I don’t think there is any secret, or only one key for explaining the success. There are many reasons. I have the best crew I could imagine to compete with. Takis Mantis, at the helm and Pavlos Kargialis are two of the most expert in the world. Recently they raced in the Eurolymp 2010. With the rest of the crew, we have been racing from 1992, and there is a big feeling that involved the other new members of the crew. It’s true, in Punta Ala I promised that this year I would win but it was a playful challenge more than a promise. In this regatta it was difficult to do forecasts, the level of the participants was very high and the variables were considerable. Alicante put us on probation with conditions changing every day but constancy in the results is really attributable to the high quality of the team. I would like to thank the Real Club Regata di Alicante for the splendid hospitality. And for the next year… an other promise? I promise that Modus Vivendi will be in the World Championship in Austria in 2011. If my two young Champions will be available, the next year there will be the Olympic qualifications in London. I know that they will be and that they appreciated a lot the big family of Platu 25”.
