After two beutyful sailing day the wind and the weather became even better on Sunday for the last race oof the MVM Balaton Melges 24 Regata. 20-25 knots of southwest wind with bright sunshine made it possible to finish the first event of theEuropean Sailing Series perfectly.
Riccardo Simoneschi’s Audi Team the winner of the first seven races finished just second today so the last race was won by Ian Ainslie’s team Strange Brew. Even this win was not enough for them to overhaul in the overall standings the austrian Corinthian team Die Weisse helmed by Franz Urlesberger. It’s a great success to them as they finished in front of the majority of the professional teams too.
The competition of the Corinthian teams were won by the austrians in front of the danish team helmed by Bo Boje Pedersen and the best hungarians where the helmsman is Attila Bujáky.
Hopefully next year on the Melges 24 European Championship all will go as well as in this succesful first event of the European Sailing Series.
