Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze won the Open European Championships, the Olympic Champions from Brazil in a different class this week in Weymouth. The greater interest for the Medal Race was which of the chasing pack would succeed in taking the silver and bronze. There were six teams in contention for the minor medals, but the team that needed to climb on to the podium more than any other were the reigning World Champions from the Netherlands, Annemieke Bekkering and Annette Duetz. On the back foot after their Dutch rivals won the previous regatta in Italy, the Hempel World Cup event in Genoa, Bekkering and Duetz need to pull out all their experience and ability to withstand pressure as they lined up on the Medal Race start line.

The Dutch won the pin end of the line and cruised off towards the left-hand side in the soft, 6 knot breezes. They reached the windward mark in first place and looked set for a straightforward win until they were beaten to the final windward mark by the Norwegian crew, Helene Næss and Marie Rønningen. The Norwegians held the lead on the last downwind leg and crossed the finish line ahead, sufficient to give the 2018 European Champions the bronze medal. The Dutch held their nerve to cross the line in second place, making them the European Champions (excluding the Brazilians) and earning them a place at next year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo. Grinning from ear to ear, Bekkering and Duetz hugged each other in relief at their double victory.

Alex Maloney and Molly Meech of New Zealand finished fourth, one place ahead of the big discovery of the regatta, the 2018 Junior World Champions from Sweden who have flourished at senior level in all conditions this week. Vilma Bobeck and Malin Tengstrom were really fast in the strong wind but getting better by the race in the light winds.

The 49erFX fleet have enjoyed all kinds of sea state and wind conditions that has been a true all-round test, one that will linger long in the memory of Bekkering and Duetz in particular.

Picturesque, idyllic, charming – Risør is a heritage preserved wooden town in the south of Norway. Positioned just behind a narrow archipelago it is close to sailing arenas, either inshore or just offshore in the Skagerak ocean.

With its steady sea breeze it typically offers great sailing conditions where sailors have to show the full range of their capabilities as light winds in the morning builds to challenging in the afternoon.

With a proud seafaring history as one of the largest Norwegian harbours for wooden sailing ships, it still has sailing as part of the city identity.

We have based the 2019 championship in the town square and surrounding area and aim to create an intimate arrangement where sailors are an integral part of citylife and access to shops is easy and convenient.

For the last two years Risør has been host city for M32 regattas and we are now looking forward to seeing the full force of 49ers, 49FX and Nacras on our fjords.
