RS Feva European Championships 2019 – French pair claim the title in preparation for the Worlds

June 11, 2019
RS Feva European Championships 2019

34 RS Feva teams took on the challenge to become the RS Feva European Champions in Le Harve, France last weekend. 10 races were hosted over the three day event, with wonderful sunshine, patches of pressure and a troublesome tidal flow, it made conditions challenging for sailors.

The French duo of Lisandru Bunel and Thomas Kuntze were crowned European Champions for 2019, they found that consistency over the course of the regatta to be key to their success. After a confidence boosting 1st place finish in race one, they never placed outside the top 6 all weekend. This was enough to clinch the title by just one point over the British team of Blake and Brett Tudor.

Completing the top three were the Dutch siblings, Luuk and Sjoerd De Wijn, who posted the best results on the final day of racing with a two 1st’s and a 2nd place. It was excellent to see the diverse group of young boys and girls across the top 10 finishers with 6 nations represented at the top of the overall standings.

In addition to the racing, the social time for the sailors and their families was much enjoyed too, with sailors from across the 8 represented countries all enjoying time to unwind. The RS Feva class has been excellent in retaining the young people in the sport of sailing and continues to go from strength to strength.

With the Europeans now all wrapped up now, the main event is approaching. The RS Feva World Championships will be hosted by Gruppo Vela L.N.I Follinca in Italy from the 20th to 26th July. The event already has over 190 entrant teams, so it’s due to be one to remember and certainly a humungous celebration of this strong global youth racing class.
