The Final day of the ISAF Grade 2 Athens Eurolymp Regatta, on the waters that will host the Olympic Regatta in August, was sailed in a brisk 35-knot breeze that tested the World class sailors. With many competing and using the event as a build up regatta for the Olympic Games, competition was unsurprisingly tough and in some cases, incredibly close; as a variety of conditions throughout the week.
Pont, the 2003 Mistral World Champion clearly revelled in the strong conditions on the final day to win by a single point from Julien BONTEMPS (FRA).
The next ISAF Grade 2, multi-class Olympic Classes regatta is the next Eurolymp event Olympic Garda, in Riva del Garda, Italy. Racing starts on Lake Garda on 16 March following measurement and registration.
