Tornado European Championship 2010
Torbole, Italy

A perfect regatta with eight wins from eight races secures the European title in style for the Greek duo.
Team Red Bull sailors Iordanis Paschalidis and Konstantinos Trigonis took the tricky Lake Garda conditions in their stride to sail a faultless regatta. Throughout the four days they were chased hard by Roland Gaebler and Nahid Gaebler (GER), match racing each other a times, who despite some excellent sailing themselves could never find a way past the Greeks. With six second places Team Geabler comfortably took second place with Martin Rusterholz and Jean Marc Cuanillon (SUI) in third.

Speaking about their victory Konstantinos Trigonis said "It was a great week for us. To be honest we were not expecting to win the regatta that easily, the weather conditions helped us a lot because we favour the windy conditions. Our speed was awesome upwind in all conditions, we won all of the races and we are really happy about it. We stayed focused throughout the whole week and didn't make any mistakes. The race committee did a fantastic job not loosing even one chance to run a race for the competitors. We now have to focus on bringing this fantastic boat back into the Olympic Games again."

ITA President and World Champion Roland Gaebler also commented saying "They have our full respect, they were better in speed and also with some manoeuvres. They sailed a brilliant series and they deserve this European Championships victory, their 3rd in a row."
