The podium closes with the Catalan Joan Domingo and the Greek Emmanouil Anastasios Vomvylas. In SUB16 the champions have been Sviatoslav Madonich and the Croatian Ema Grabar, while in SUB13 the title falls to the Finnish Sami Hietalahti and the Valencian Marta Ferrando.

The Ukrainian Sviatoslav Madonich (SVOC / Team Ukraine) is proclaimed champion of the XV Euromarina Optimist Torrevieja Trophy. A spectacular last day and in which the calculator has been the protagonist, together with the wind and the rain, which has caused a total drop in the wind at the end of the second test, at which time a strong but short shower entered, starting later with a wind that has reached 14 knots of intensity to close the final series.

Madonich managed to win the game against the Catalan Joan Domingo (CN Cambrils), who was leading. The first signed a 57 and the second 62. The difference between the two became a reality in the following two tests: Madonich 4-2 and Domingo 19-24 still and despite two good starts from the Catalan and having been in the top position in the first bars of the test. These numbers, together with the previous ones, leave the Ukrainian first with 45 by 72 the Catalan. Bronze went to the Greek Emmanouil Anastasios Vomvylas (ANOG) with 73 points.

Regarding the SUB16 and SUB13 categories, the podiums in the first one are closed with the Croatian Ema Grabar (Jedrilicarski klub Uljanik), winning the game in the last test of the day against the Valencian Blanca Ferrando (RCN Valencia), leader at the start of the day, while the bronze has been for Pola Wdowiak (Legia SC), who was facing the last first. Grabar closes her participation in Torrevieja with 165 points, Ferrando's 181 and Wdowiak's 183.

Locally, with regard to the SUB16, Juan Francisco Chumilla (RNC Torrevieja) stands out, finishing in 19th place, highlighting in his box a 17 and a 12 as the best partials in the 10 completed tests.

Regarding the U13, gold for Marta Ferrando (RCN de Valencia). A podium that has had the color of the Valencian Community, since Begoña Pérez (CN Jávea) brilliantly hangs the silver, while Valentina Belso (RCN Torrevieja) the bronze.

The Finnish Sami Hietalahti, like the Valencian, have been able to control and make profitable their advantage in this last day. Hietalahti, despite not scoring good sets in the last two, both ending in 70th place. His advantage over the Turkish Eren Kaan Erendemir (Galatasaray) was important, so much so that the U13 overall closed with 273 points from the first for 485 the second. Bronze for another sailor from the RCN de Torrevieja: Izan Rogel, close to silver as he concludes with 492 points, and that as a result of being out of line in the penultimate test (BFD).
