European Championship

9th at the European Championship...

Medal Race
We sailed a crazy tricky medale race, only 15meters away from the shore. With big holes of pressure and shifts of 40 degres, it was a bit lottery but we did quite good with a 6th place. Overall we finished 9th and 8th European country.

We are happy to have little break now and next trip will be Rio de Janeiro! We look forward to discover where we will sail the Olympics in 2 years.


Day 5

It has been again a heavy day on the water with 3 races sailed in 18-31knts. We sailed ok but nothing fantastic. We had difficulties at the starts and tactically we did a lot of mistakes. At least downwind we were fast and sailed well and always we had this fighting spirit to gain as many places as possible. We finished 15th, 13th and 12 to just make the medal race. We enter in 9th position, very tight from 10th to 7th. Let's see what we can do today. Go go go TEAM BB

Day 3

After a long postponement on shore, the Mistral droped a bit and we could sail 2 races. Big black clouds came over the racing course and made the tactic really difficult. The wind was blowing between 8-26knts with shifs of 40 degres. It was a hard day for the tacticians ;)

We sailed a bit better today and did a 7th and a 3rd. The other fleet is still sailing so no result for the moment.

Here is the website of the championship.



Day 2
The Mistral blow up to 24knts today, with 30° shifts and lots of hole of pressures on the race course. Unfortunatly we started a little too early in our first race to be scored BFD. Then we sailed two races of 8th and 5th. We did few tactical mistakes, we still need to improve. But yes, we are on fire for this 3rd day of qualification!


Day 1
We started the Europeans with a long day of waiting under the rain. Despite an attempt of the Race Comite to make us start, the sky never cleared up and the wind never came through. The day was cancelled at 6pm.


74 teams from 28 nations will start racing from tomorrow on til Saturday 12th. Great conditions here for the second training in south of France. We had strong breeze for the practice race today where we could do our finale tuning.

Our boat is ready, we are ready... Go go go TEAM BB
