Sail-World.com : Scheidt takes Star title - Percy second

Scheidt takes Star title - Percy second

Marazzi and DeMaria won the final Star race and Percy and Simpson sailed a tactically brilliant race, but were unable to control Scheidt and Prada's appetite for passing boats and winning the 2008 Star Eastern European Championship.

The Brazilian pair, Robert Scheidt and Bruno Prada, finished eighth in the final race and held on to the Star Eastern European Championship series, finishing just one point ahead of Britain's Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson and three points ahead of Mateusz Kusznierewicz and Dominik Zycki.

Croatian sailors, Marin Lovrovic Jr. and Sinisa Mikulicic, who are also on their way to the Olympics in the Star, demonstrated their skill in predominately light air conditions on their Dalmatian seas. All in all, the regatta was a productive final battle of the Titans before they meet again in Qingdao, China for the Olympics in August.

Everything went as scheduled on the final day of the Star Eastern European Championships. The Dalmatian sun shone during the morning and heated up the land enough so that the Bora, the sea breeze, started to fill. The winds reached 8 knots and brought a gentle chop and white caps. Clouds built over the shore and once again the ridge behind Split disappeared.

With the wind at 250 degrees, the weather mark was positioned between the northeast tip of Solta and the island of Drevenik. Further to the right, the coastal community of Mavaricica was stacked up on the sloping shore of Clovo.

This was an important day for the Croatians. Many of them came dressed in their red and white checkered jerseys and caps, showing their allegiance to their country and to their national football team, which was scheduled to play Austria in the European Championships later in the afternoon. The committee rolled into sequence shortly after 13:00.
