Below are the final results for the 2018 RS500 Eurocup Series, which comprised with YC Carnac, Worlds at RS Games, Weymouth and Colico, Lake Como. The results include junior (J) and all girls (F) ranking. With thanks to Mario Rossi for doing the sums.

In 2018, sixty RS500s competed from ten nations, and among them were nineteen junior teams. This is an encouraging point for the future (ten of them come from Italy, the youngest fleet!).

The Netherlands, with 22 boats, is the first nation, Italy is the second with 11 boats, Great Britain is the third with 10. Only four boats from the Czech Republic and Slovakia (there is a huge class there, ready for Worlds 2019 in Lipno...).

Unfortunately there were only three races in the 2018 Eurocup (Carnac, Weymouth and Colico) but they had very competitive fleets, excellent wind & weather conditions and spectacular competition everywhere!

Thanks to France, Great Britain and Italy for these wonderful events. 2019 will really be the year of records as France, Italy, Czech Republic and The Netherlands host the events. Details are up on the website (Lac du Der, FRA; Worlds CZE) and other two (Lake Como in May or June and The Netherlands in September) will be available soon here.

Save the dates and come and join the fun!
