SWEDEN SECURE GOLD AFTER MATCH RACE WITH SPAIN

18 Sep 2022

Anton Dahlberg & Lovisa Karlsson (SWE) had to fight hard for the gold medal but the Swedes came through to win the 470 European Championships in Çeşme, Turkey. Jordi Xammar & Nora Brugman (ESP) had their opportunities to seize gold during a tense medal race in 16 to 18 knot southerly breeze, but in the end they couldn’t quite get past the Swedes and had to settle for silver. Giacomo Ferrari & Bianca Caruso (ITA) bounced back from a disastrous start to climb up to fourth in the medal race and take the bronze medal.

SWEDES SNIFF THEIR WAY THROUGH THE SHIFTY STUFF

16 Sep 2022

Anton Dahlberg & Lovisa Karlsson (SWE) ran away with the fourth day of competition at the 470 European Championships in Çeşme, Turkey. Somehow the Swedes made sense of the trickiest conditions yet seen on Ilica Bay, with a new southerly direction creating shifty offshore breezes that swing through 30 degrees or more. No one came close to emulating the 2,1 scoreline which now puts SWE 349 in the lead. As Karlsson said: “You had to be on top of your compass numbers today, knowing the limits of the shifts, and keep your eyes out for the next bit of pressure.”

The Spanish and Japanese teams looked right at home in the softer breeze that ruled the third day of the 470 European Championships in Çeşme, Turkey. With the 5 to 9 knot breeze wafting the gold and silver fleets along at a much gentler pace than the previous breezy days, a different set of skills came into play on Thursday.
