Star Europeans Draw to a Close

14th June 2010
Star Europeans Draw to a Close

The 132-boat Star Europeans finished their six-race series in Viareggio, Italy, with the Germain pairing of Johannes Polgar and Markus Koy taking the win with a consistent showing.

The Irish boats finished just outside the top 30, with Max Treacy and Anthony Shanks emerging ahead of their London 2012 rivals by just nine points, finishing in 31st place overall. Peter O'Leary and David Burrows ended the regatta in 33rd place, after counting an 88th and 35th in their last two races.

The official website (for what it's worth - and that's not a lot) is HERE.
