2003 SPA Regatta
Medemblick

On the last day today, only the 470 Men fleet got a new leader, as team Marinho / Nunes from Portugal took over the lead from team Gildas / Le Berre from France.
The Nations Cup went to the Netherlands. After yesterday's cancellations due to lack of wind, today's racing schedule could be completed totally.

Although she could not participate in her race today, Lise VIDAL from France won the Mistral Women competition. Vidal: "I could not race today, because my board was gone. Somebody from the silver fleet took mine. Fortunately, I did not loose the title due to this mistake."

Robert SCHEIDT from Brazil did not sail either, but that is because he did not need to anymore. His lead was that big that he could start his victory party last evening.

The 2003 SPA Regatta started with perfect sailing conditions. The level of competition was very high. Great Britain won in three classes, but the Netherlands collected most points for the Nations Cup.
