Today, on the 8th of September, the new Melges 24 European Champion has been determined in Hyeres, France.
11 races were held during 4 days of competition, and it is still the penultimate day of Marinepool Melges 24 European Championship. The weather conditions are extremely challenging, which tests all teams’ skills and powers.
The winner of that Championship and, therefore, the new Melges 24 European Champion was determined ahead of the schedule. It is the team EFG helmed by Christopher Rast with Danielle Rast, Patrick Zaugg, Matteo Ferraglia and Nikolay Kornev on board!
Danielle Rast is very enthusiastic about their success: “This event is one of the most important ones in Europe and we are very happy we could win it. We have been preparing for it the whole year. The weather here in Hyeres has been much more challenging than we encountered for, but we are glad we could perform in these conditions so well.”
