470 European Championship
Tallin

Whilst the Australian pairing of Nathan Wilmot/Malcolm Page took the 470 European Championship Open Men (including nations outside Europe), it was the French and Greeks who were at the top for the 470 Europeans (European nations only).
On the final day of racing at the 470 European championships, Tallinn, Estonia, team GBR sailors and Sydney Olympians Nick Rogers/Joe Glanfield, raised their game to score a sixth and a seventh place and finish with a bronze medal.

Nathan Wilmot/Malcolm Page of Australia walked away with the Open championship, winning by 26 points from Nicolas Charbonnier/Stephane Christidis of France, however Charbonnier/Christidis were the top Europeans and came away with the title of 2002 European champions and the gold medal.

Sofia Bekatorou/Emilia Tsoulfa (GRE) successfully defended their European Crown to take the Women's European championship, finishing five points in front of Jennifer Armstrong/Belinda Stowell of Australia - a role reversal from the previous time they met, at the 2002 ISAF World Sailing Games, where the Armstrong/Stowell took Gold, with Bekatorou/Tsoulfa way down the fleet. Vladeline Ilienko/Diana Krutskih of Russia, who led at the start of the regatta, won the silver medal in the European championships with Lisa Westerhof/Margriet Matthijsse of the Netherlands, taking the bronze medal.
