Findel and Tennel are 505 European Champions

by Sail-world.com/uk on 10 Oct 2008
Jens Findel and Johannes Tennel of Germany are the new 505 European champions. The European championship finished Thursday with the German pair just where they started, leading the event from race one.

In the overall Open event ranking the USA led with Ethan Bixby and Erik Boothe, '81 World Champions winning the final race to be three points clear of the new European Champions, Findel and Tennel of Germany. Then the '99 World Champion, Howard Hamlin and Andy Zinn, giving some indication of the likely major players in the Worlds event.

They only placed tenth place on the final day but Findel and Tennel controlled their nearst rivals, Jan Saugmann, and Morten Ramsbaek of Denmark, the reigning World Champions, who came only 30th today, and second in the Euros.

In third place overall in the Europeans, Britain's Ian Pinnell and Carl Gibbon, rose by nearly ten positions after their fifth place today. For Pinnel, a great sailor with 35 golds from global, european and national titles, sailor of the year in 1991, this is a good result leading to the races Saturday, when the World title will start.

'The field is perfect -- Pinnel said - and we have come to Palermo to win the World Cup, we will try, we will be among the challengers.'

The strong American presence looks ominous for the Worlds, although racing has been in light winds. Also placing well have been the Australian pair Nick Davis and Mike Duffield, 11 in the Euros, and the Irish pair Ewen Barry and Charles Dwyer in tenth place.
