He is and will remain a straightforward "Aussie" with entertainment qualities and a real "Scallywag": David Witt provided plenty of entertainment and fun at the last press conference in the British port city of Cardiff. According to the skipper of the Sun Hung Kai / Scallywag team, he tried to place a $ 10,000 bet on the overall victory for Team Brunel. But so far in vain.
… "Scallywag" skipper David Witt used it for a cheerful betting show
So Witt looked around at the press conference and asked the two skippers from Dongfeng and Mapfre who were ahead of Team Brunel in the overall standings: "After our poor results on the last stages, we naturally wish for better results for the last sections. More importantly, there is nowhere I can bet on Brunel's overall win. Nowhere! I ran all over Cardiff to find out how to bet $ 10,000 on Bouwe's race win. We love betting in Australia. I thought maybe someone here at Raum, yes, more than that, the two guys in the red shirts (meaning Dongfeng skipper Charles Caudrelier and Mapfre skipper Xabí Fernandez, the editor), maybe my $ 10,000 bet accepts that Brunel will win? someone accept the bet? Charles, do you want to accept it? You make a lot of money …"
Has entertainer qualities: David Witt
Witt earned a lot of laughter for his little show performance. But neither Caudrelier nor Fernandez want to strike. Then Witt shook his head: "I just can't place a bet in Europe. What's going on here?"
The start of the harbor race in Cardiff was planned for 2.45 p.m. German time on Friday afternoon. The tenth of the eleven stages from Cardiff to Gothenburg begins on Sunday. You can watch the live broadcast of the inshore race here.
