Melges 24 European Championships
It was a large fleet of over 60 boats that sailed in the Melges 24 Europeans held at Lake Balaton, Hungary.
Sailing with owner/helm David Rowan and crew Jim Schwerdt and Mike Claxton with me calling tactics. This was Davids first Melges 24 event in 8 months and the first time together for this crew. Lake Balaton is a tricky venue offering very light and shifty conditions. The light winds suited our underweight team however, and we achieved some good results including a 2nd, 8th, and 10th.
Finishing 18th overall in this highly competitive fleet, David was very happy to have improved on last years result of 24th and we hope to build on this as the year progresses.
