2012 Techno 293 Europeans Patrik Pollak
What a difference a day and two more races has made at the Techno 293 European Championships, as the wind returned to the lighter conditions of the first three days. In the under 17 boys fleet, Friday's leader Yael Paz put in his worst result of the week, which he could not afford to do, and slid down to third overall. Italian Michele Cittadini moved up into second place and Adam Sosnowski (POL 263) became Under 17 Boys European Champion.

World Champion Marta Maggetti (ITA 157) has maintained a strong lead throughout in the under 17 girls fleet and now adds the title Under 17 Girls European Champion to her portfolio. Zohar Ben Hayoun finished comfortably second overall. The real battle has been for the third place on the podium which went to Zuzanna Czurylo with one point to spare!

In the under 15 boys fleet, World Champion Tom Monnet has also dominated the top spot throughout and becomes the Under 15 Boys European Champion. Just one point separated Yoav Cohen in silver position and Antonino Cangemi in bronze. The effect of the stronger wind was quite marked in this fleet as some good scores were posted on that day by those who finished way down the fleet.

The most nail-biting finish for the top spot was in the girls under 15's. Lucie Pianazza from France might have nailed it, being just one point behind at the close of play on Friday . . . she beat Gulia Alagna's third with a second in the first race on the final day . . . and then bombed out with a sixth as Gulia won the final race of the championship! Thus Gulia Alagna from Italy becomes Under 15 Girls European Champion, Lucie Pianazza takes silver and Maya Morris from Israel bronze.

Murcia has delivered a fantastic championship. Our hosts in Los Alcazares have been great, organisation has been second to none, and the atmosphere has been amazing. Well done to all our competitors who have all fought their closest rivals with such spirit and made new friends along the way.








Final Results: Boys u17 / Boys u15 / Girls u17 / Girls u15 Techno 293 website
