Sail-World.com : OK Dinghy European Championship - Victory claimed in Carnac
OK Dinghy European Championship - Victory claimed in Carnac


'Top 3 - 2013 OK Dinghy European Championship'    International OK Dinghy Association - copyright

The OK Dinghy European Championship in Carnac, France, came to a close on Friday without another race being sailed. Very light winds kept the fleet on shore all day in the sunshine. So Bo Petersen (DEN) won the title from Stefan Myralf (DEN) and Thomas Hansson-Mild (SWE).

After only two years in the class the 50 year old architect Bo Petersen won the championship by just one point from Myralf. Petersen said, 'I was hoping the wind would not materialise, while Stefan hoped that the wind came. Four years ago I said to myself that I would win a World Championship before I was 50; now I'm 50 and have won a championship.'

Myralf took a very close second, with both Danish sailors sailing the new SOTA hulls from Denmark, which are clearly quick in the light conditions in Carnac this week. Myralf wanted the chance to sail today but it wasn't to be.

The bronze went to Sweden Thomas Hansson-Mild, who had led the championship for a few days before the Danes took over the top two positions. The world champion from 2009, said, 'I am happy with my third and can not ask for more given the conditions. Light winds and two good sailors in front. Congratulations to both Bo and Stefan. Now I take a break from OK sailing but might come back some day.'
