Silver to Ireland Youth at EUROSAF Team Racing European Championship

24th September 2010
Silver to Ireland Youth at EUROSAF Team Racing European Championship
The 2010 EUROSAF Team Racing European Championship took place from 17 to 19 September in Venice, Italy. Ten teams took part racing in RS Fevas with the title going to the Italian Youth team.

After the terrible weather conditions on Saturday, the Oraganizing Committee took the decision to compete inside Venice lagoon, where they met a fabolous day three, with a very good northeast wind, no waves and lot of tidal current.

The conditions gave the chance to fully complete the planned Round Robin, racing every single match in program. End results saw three teams tied for the title, two Italians and the Irish, therefore the final ranking had to be calculated considering not only victories, but also points obtained in every single match, since there was no time enough to sail semifinals and finals.

After calculations, Italy Youth won the title, followed by Italy Open and Ireland Youth. But according to the rule included in the notice of race for which a single Nation could not win two titles with two different teams, the scorer had to eliminate the second Italian team from the Open podium. So the open and youth rankings coincide with the awarding of the gold medal to Italy Youth, silver to Ireland Youth and bronze to England Youth.

Full final standings:
1. Italy Youth
2. Italy Open,
3. Ireland Youth
4. England Youth
5.Sweden Youth
6. Hungary Youth
7. Andorra Open
8. Nederland Youth
9. Spain Youth
10. Netherlands Open
