    Julien Bontemps & Faustine Merret take it!
    Posted On:  19/01/2004 09:01:50

    Julien Bontemps (FRA) had the Mistral Mens sailboard at the Sail Melbourne Regatta wrapped up yesterday, but that did not stop him from racing and winning the final Race 11 today on a windy Port Phillip Bay.

    Bontemps, like his French counterpart, Faustine Merret in the Mistral Womens, did not look back from Day one, winning eight of the 11 races, his worst result also a fifth placing.

    Max Oberemko (UKR) grabbed a second place today to finish his regatta overall with 17 points from Lars Kleppich (AUS). Kleppich finished third today for third place – not a bad effort, being the oldest man in the fleet – 36 years old and a father of two – he still has what it takes and
    looks like representing Australia in Athens – his third Olympics.
