This is a very serious event! Looking at the competition and understanding that teams like France will not be attending Worlds this year but everyone is here proves this is one of the toughest Optimist fleets in the world this year. You can lose 30 boats missing one shift, or gain 20 with one brilliant move.
Isn't that the way championship sailing should be?
TeamUSA appreciates the continuing invitation extended by our European friends to participate in the European Champs. This venue is outstanding, the race committee work excellent and the weather is just about perfect. With 4 days of racing complete the competition is sure to take a leap in intensity tomorrow, and TeamUSA is up to the challenge.
Results are pending.... standing by in Tavira.
