Final results Optimist general results

“Another great event finished. 10 hard races, a lot of hours on the water under a really hard competition. Our Swiss Sailing Team TalentPool gold with the ups and downs complete the regatta with some decent rankings, 18, 20, 21, 29, 41, 61, 112 and 190 among 360 sailors.
Congratulations to Marco Gradoni twice world champion for his amazing performance showing one more time the way you have to sail optimist.
Now for my team an upcoming ski session weekend and for me back to my under 9 years old Greek team project. Soon we will meet again for Palamos.”

19th EUROMED regatta in Malta

19 – 23 December, 2018

Short break after regatta in Riva and off to Malta!

The MAPFRE Middle Sea 19th Euromed regatta, organised by the Malta Young Sailors Club, gathered 213 participants from 22 countries.

Races took place in beautiful Mellieha Bay. The event was very nice and it was good to escape the cold in Switzerland. Regatta gave us lots of opportunities to practise – we did 11 races! I did well, I was 3rd girl and 18th overall.

In January, next stop will be Torrevieja Spain, See you there!

Here are the final results.
