Fireball Europeans at Acquafresca, Brenzone, Lake Garda - Overall

by Dave Hall 5 Aug 2016 09:47 BST 30 July - 6 August 2016
Claude Mermod and Ruedi Moser from Switzerland win the Fireball Europeans at Lake Garda © Yacht Club Acquafresca

The European Champions are Claude Mermod and Ruedi Moser from Switzerland. With a spectacular scoreline and a consistency in the trying conditions that was impressive to say the least.

The last 2 races of the championship were held in almost classic Garda conditions, it was however still full of holes and shifts and in the first race of the day if you got planted in the middle of the course you were history. The left got away with it and the right as per the text book took those who were there in to hyper drive and were never seen again.

After the Swiss team the next three places were all filled by Czech teams with Allan and Christina Tyler being the first British boat.

The prize giving was held on the edge of the lake in the setting sun and the European fleet were invited to meet again in Lyme Regis for the 2017 European Championship.
