Mistral European Championship
Lake Neusiedl

The penultimate day of the Mistral Europeans kicked off in a heavy breeze and tough conditions.
With a total of 44 points, Natasha Sturges (GBR) is tied on even points with Alessandra Sensini of Italy in gold medal position, with one race left to go.

Przemek Miarczynski of Poland continued his domination over the men's fleet in the heavy airs, scoring his sixth first place of the championship in the first race of the day. Despite his race wins, his results are still suffering from his performance in the lighter conditions and he has not yet reached the top of the scoreboard.

Instead the top spot still stands with Alexandre Guyader of France, who scored a second and a third place today to put him at the top of the fleet from Gal Fridman of Israel. Fellow Frenchman Nicolas Beudou is in third place. The championship is not over yet, racing will be tight going into the final day as there are only three points between third and fifth place in the overall European results.

With one final race left of the championship, team GBR will be hoping that they will be able to bring home a medal from the European championships.
