Laser Europa Cup 2013 - Dominance on Lake Garda
Wed, 20 Mar 2013
Laser Europa Cup 2013. Robert Scheidt (BRA) and Tatiana Drozdovskaya (BLR) dominated the Laser and Laser Radial fleets on Lake Garda, Italy.
After three days of intense and testing wind that threw out some exceptional competition, the final day was plagued with light winds that forced the competition to come to an early ending. But for Scheidt and Drozdovskaya the damage had been done as both sailors, who have sailed at nine Olympic Games between them, went through the five race series undefeated.
In the 111-boat Laser fleet Scheidt rolled back the years to sweep past his younger opponents. Emil Cedergardh (SWE) finished one point behind the Brazilian whilst ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami victor Jesper Stalheim (SWE) came through in third.
The Laser Radial Women's fleet featured 89 sailors all aiming to take gold. Drozdovskaya used all of her experience to control the fleet and take gold ahead of Michelle Broekhuizen (NED) and Daphne Van Der Vaart (NED).
