Star European Championships

Final results are in for the Star Europeans which concluded in Skodstrup, Denamrk today. Only six races were completed over the course of the event.

After another day with light and stable winds the new European champions of the Star class is in the bag.

There was a slight chance of a Danish European Champion, but already on the first windward leg the distance between the Danish Star boat and the Swedes was too short. The two Swedes in boat SWE 7650, helmsman Fredrik Lööf and crew Magnus Liljedahl rounded after the first windward leg in 8th while the Danish competitors, Christian Rasmussen and Peter Oersted rounded as in 5th position.

The Swedes finished 6 in this race, and the Danish 2, and so the Swedish took the title by some 12 points.
