International Easter Regatta
Braassemermeer

The final day of the 18th International Easter Optimist Regatta brought sun and comfortable temperatures (around 20 degrees) but very light winds from SE directions with big shifts.
Based on the results of the five races of Saturday and Sunday the competitors were divided in a gold, silver and bronze fleet, to sail the final two races in these summer conditions.

The first final race started at 10:00hrs and Hannah Mills (GBR), leader after 5 races, did a good job by finishing sixth while her biggest rivals like Gijs Pelt (NED - second after 5 races) and Patrick Follman (GER - third after 5 races) got stuck in the second half of the gold fleet.

Before the last race could be started the race committee had to postpone due to lack of wind. After all the last race started around 13:30hrs with some more black flags and for the bronze fleet a shortened course. Well begun is half done, so Hannah Mills could sail her discard race, finishing 72, and won the 18th International Easter Optimist Regatta with a strong lead. Oskar Taurel (SWE) had a good last day which brought him from 8th place after 5 races to second place overall, before the first Dutch and second female competitor on the podium, Rikst Dijkstra.
