Umag – Final Results

The race management feared that there wouldn’t be enough wind on Saturday, the last day of this series and therefore canceled Thursday as a layday: With medium to light wind, again great weather and less waves, the 70 competitors had four more great races with perfect conditions on Thursday and Friday. Race 6 was again won by Szabolcs Majthenyi and Andras Domokos, race 7 by Andras Süli and David Papp. Friday’s race 8 by Australian/Dutch team Ed Cox and Peter van Koppen and the final race 9 by GER 219 Jörg and Nils Hermann. With just 16 points out of 9 races Szabolcs Majthenyi and Andras Domokos can ad again a title as European Champion to their long list of international titels! Congratulations! NED 26 Enno Kramer and Ard Geelkerken finished on second place and the Vespasiani brothers and Nicola and Francesco finished on third. The overall results and an nice pictures gallery can be found here. Thanks again to Robin Matulja and his family who made this great event possible. MARC GER172

Euro Umag – race ticker 2

Umag_18What a great day of FD sailing! After waiting the entire first day for less wind than 11 to 15 m/s everybody was deseperate to go onto the water today. And the conditions couldn´t have been better: Sunny, warm and nice wind and waves for 3 races and 8 hours on the water. The first race was won by the Vespasiani brothers follow by three more Italian boats. Races two and three not completely suprisingly by HUN 70 after 8 (!!) starts for the thrid race when a large number of top teams were banned from the race with BFD. Here are the final results overall_3 after 3 races with 6 more scheduled. MARC GER172
