Team Red Bull Takes Tornado European Championship

The fourth and final day of the 2010 Tornado European Championships provided three races for the sailors in a mixture of conditions between 10 and 25 knots with constant rain.

It was the Greek team of Iordanis Paschalidis and Konstantinos Trigonis who took overall victory sailing their Red Bull, Graham Eeles Tornado. They could not be faulted through the whole regatta with 8 wins from 8 races. Team Gaebler have been hot on their heels but couldn't get ahead to take victory. Again it was a closely fought battle with the Greek and German teams match racing each other to the finish.

With a Northerly wind direction today's racing was tricky because of the shifts produced by the wind coming around the mountain. There were also some large gusts which caused some teams to capsize and unfortunately we had a broken mast today. The racing provided all of the action you expect from sailing the Tornado Multihull with close racing upwind and downwind between the boats. Final top ten:

1. Iordanis Paschalidis, Konstantinos Trigkonis, GRE, 7 points
2. Roland Gaebler / Nahid Gaebler, GER, 15
3. Martin Rusterholz, Jean Marc Cuanillon, SUI, 28
4. Nikolaos Mayros, Alexandros Tagaropoulos, GRE, 39
5. Dieter Maurer / Axel Rahn Peer, GER, 44
6. Manfred Schonleitner / Martin Lux, AUT, 52
7. Hannes Jantke / Phillip Wetzig, GER, 65
8. Michael Schonleitner / Philipp Rakuschan, AUT, 66
9. Veit Hemmeter / Michael Gloor, GER, 72
10. Lutz Stadtmuller / Fabian Neun, GER, 74
