Sport Wilhelmshaven Sailing Regatta Sailing Cup Before 20th anniversary
Finch should step aside for red-hot Green to give Australia best chance of winning World Cup
This will sound harsh but reality bites sometimes – the best thing Aaron Finch could do for Australia’s T20 World Cup chances would be to retire. All-rounder Cameron Green’s explosive hitting in the three-match series against India was a revelation that cannot be ignored. If he walks out to bat with David Warner at the T20 World Cup, Australia deserve to be favourites to retain the crown they won last year in the UAE. But if Finch is still bringing his middling form to the crease at the top of the innings, the home side will be at a decided disadvantage.
For the 20th anniversary of the Wilhelmshaven Sailing Cup, around a dozen traditional sailors and more than 1000 fellow sailors in the harbor town are expected on Saturday (9.30 a.m.). According to the Wilhelmshaven Touristik und Freizeit GmbH, the competition is the oldest traditional sailor regatta on the German North Sea coast. The 13 traditional ships are accompanied by several smaller sailing ships and sports boats on the probably around eight -hour drive.
In addition to the large regatta, many other maritime events will also be offered in Wilhelmshaven this weekend, including harbor tours, ship visits, a pirate festival and a harbor swimming. In addition, several exhibitions can be seen, for example in the German Marinemuseum and in the coastal museum.
