Star Class European Championship
L'Escala, Girona

The 2004 Star European Championship concluded yesterday in Spain with one more race sailed. The final race went to current World Champions and 2003 ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year Nominees Xavier ROHART and Pascal RAMBEAU (FRA).
But Freddie Lööf and Anders EKSTROM (SWE) needed only a sixth place in the final race to take the title but did it in style, finishing third, and thus ending the championship with two firsts, two thirds and a discardable twelfth.

The race was a battle throughout with the lead changing throughout. Stig WESTERGAARD and Jann NEERGAARD (DEN) had easily their best race of the championship, finishing second and third went to the 2002 World Champions Iain PERCY and Steve MITCHELL (GBR).

Overall, Rohart and Rambeau had done enough to finish second just four points behind Löof and never finishing outside the top ten. Third went to winners of Race three, the Dutch team of Mark NEELEMAN & Peter Van NIEKERK who also had a consistent championship
