Laser Europa Cup - Italy
Lake Garda, Italy

Robert Scheidt (BRA) and Tatiana Drozdovskaya (BLR) dominated the Laser and Laser Radial fleets at the Laser Europa Cup on Lake Garda, Italy.
After three days of intense and testing wind that threw out some exceptional competition the final day was plagued with light winds that forced the competition to come to an early ending. But for Scheidt and Drozdovskaya the damage had been done as both sailors, who have sailed at nine Olympic Games between them, went through the five race series undefeated.

In the 111-boat Laser fleet Scheidt rolled back the years to sweep past his younger opponents. Emil Cedergardh (SWE) finished one point behind the Brazilian whilst ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami victor Jesper Stalheim (SWE) came through in third.

The Laser Radial Women's fleet featured 89 sailors all aiming to take gold. Drozdovskaya used all of her experience to control the fleet and take gold ahead of Michelle Broekhuizen (NED) and Daphne Van Der Vaart (NED).

The male Radial fleet was dominated by an Irish contingent with three of the top four all from the Emerald Isle. Fionn Lyden (IRL) fended off Robbie Gilmore (IRL) for the regatta victory whilst 2012 ISAF Youth Worlds runner up Finn Lynch (IRL) was squeezed out by Poland's Marcin Rudawski for the final podium spot. The Under 17 title also went Ireland's way, Cian Byrne finishing well ahead of his nearest rival Muhonen Oskari (FIN).

Max Haenssler (SUI) took the boys Laser 4.7 title and the girls went the way of Judith Engberts (NED).
