Star World Championship at Troense Bådelaug, Denmark - Overall

by Rachele Vitello 8 Jul 2017 14:59 BST 29 June - 9 July 2017

Norwegian skipper Eivind Melleby and his crew Joshua Revkin (USA) are the winners of the 2017 Star World Championship in Troense, Denmark.

A hard fought battle today on the 6th race of the series among the leaders and potential winners of the 94th edition of this prestigious trophy: Lars Grael was the world champion for the first 4 legs of the regatta, but suffered a big come back by the Norwegian in the last upwind. Melleby read the shifts better and was able to go from tenth position to eight with enough boats between him and the 2015 Brazilian Star World Champion.

Lars Grael and Samuel F. Goncalves (BRA) are second and Reinhard Schmidt and Paul Sradnik (GER) third with a very consistent line of results. You can find full results on the 2017 Star World Championship website or on Star Sailors League.

Melleby and Revkin will go up 2,500 points on the SSL Ranking on Tuesday, allowing them to be in the Top Ten and earning a spot at the 2017 SSL Finals, in Nassau, Bahamas from 4th to 9th of December.

The experienced Norwegian sailor, Eivind Melleby and his crew, Joshua Revkin from USA, finished today's race ranked 8th, and the total score for the 6 races made them World Champions 2017, and the winners of the Paul Elvstrøm Trophy.

The ISCYRA President, Lars Grael from Brazil and his crew, Samuel Goncalves, came in as number 5 today which gives them second rank and the Silver Star.

The Star Sailors League wants to thank the ISCYRA and Troense Yacht Club and its volunteers for managing such an amazing Star World Championship and welcoming us here.

In an interview with a Danish newspaper, the President of ISCYRA, International Star Class Yacht Racing Association, Lars Grael, expresses his greatest honour for the event, saying: “The treatment and the hospitality which Troense has given the sailors is outstanding and second to none. From the very beginning we all had a common feeling of being welcome. The set-up of the event is also fantastic”!
