American Augie Diaz and Brazilian Bruno Prada are the winner of the Robbe&Berking Star European Championships 2018, tied to Lars Graelwith Samuel F M Gonçalves (BRA) who are second. Bronze medal goes to Irish brothers Peter and Robert O’Leary.

This is the podium of the 2018 Star European Championship, where six of the seven races were sailed even though two of the four days of racing have been quite rough with very strong stormy winds. The PRO Claus Otto was excellent in deciding the right time to give the starts, postponing on Thursday and anticipating yesterday.

Day 2 of the 2018 Star European Championships on the Flensburg Fjord was marked by thunderstorm Nadine. Race director Claus Otto Hansen had already asked all 142 sailors the day before to secure the ships well for the night and set the earliest possible start for today at 2.30 pm, later postponed at 4.30 pm to let the storm pass; morning off so for the whole fleet.

Augie Diaz (USA) Leads Day 1 of Star European Championships

August 09, 2018

The 2018 Star Europeans Championship officially started yesterday evening with theOpening Ceremony at Flensburger Segel-Club, but it was today that the battle on the water had its first go today.

Conditions on the first day of sailing were just right, with wind ranging between 8 and 12 knots, only a little shiftier than expected. With an unusual sun and clouds mix for this summer day, the 71 boats started together on one big start line. The unsettled wind direction made it difficult to decide the favorite side, and there were lots of positions’ changes in both races.
