The 2020 Laser Master European Championships successfully concluded today in Andora, Italy, after five days of competition.

The event was nicely organised by Circolo Nautico Andora and the Italian Laser Class Association (AICL), following all local sanitary protocols. 87 sailors enjoyed the racing in varied sailing conditions.

Two races with 8-10 knots from the North Eeast were added to the scores today, finally crowning our 2020 Master champions!

Laser Standard

No surprises at the end on the Laser Standard competition, with Greek sailor Adonis Bougiouris GRE (3-1-5-1-1-1-1) scoring two new bullets and was crowned as the Master and overall champion with 8 points. Second place overall and the Grand Master's title went to Carlos Martinez ESP (4-3-3-7-4-7-2) with 23. Third place overall and Master's runner-up award for Christoph Marsano AUT (7-4-20-11-10-3-5) with 40.

"It was a very tricky day - gusty winds and a lot of current. The marks were difficult to find because of waves. The sea was crazy but I managed to win.", said Adonis Bougiouris from Greece.

Roger Schulz GER completed the Master's podium, finishing 4th overall with 48.

Antoni Roig ESP (5th overall) and Jean Pierre Vogtensperger FRA (7th) completed the Grand Master's podium.

Aitor Barrenechea ESP was the Apprentice's champion, finally ranked 6th overall.

Wolfgang Gerz GER conquered the Great Grand Master's first spot finishing the event in 8th position overall.

Luigi Santocanale FRA was 5th overall and completed the Master's podium.

Georgia Chimona GRE climbed from 8th to 6th place overall today and crowned 2020 Women's champion, followed by the overnight leader Elisa Boschin ITA and Alice Grassi ITA, all of them Apprentice Master.

Pierrick Amizet FRA was the Grand Master champion, holding the 8th place overall.

The Great Grand Master's championship was for Jean Philippe Galle FRA, finishing on the 12th place on ranking.

Marçon Poopy FRA was the champion on the Legend's fleet, finishing 19th overall among all 46 competitors.

Final Radial fleet results can be found here.

We want to thank all participants, staff and volunteers who helped us developing such a wonderful event, even more considering the hard times we are living due to a pandemic situation.

The next 2021 Laser Master European Championships will be in Arco, here also in Italy, from July 23-29, so save the date!

We hope the sanitary issues will be left behind soon so we can meet again with many of our Master friends in Europe and all around the World who missed this year's edition.

We're also planning to run 13 Euro Master regattas during 2021. Check the calendar here: 2021 Euro Master Circuit - Upcoming events. The 2021 Laser Master World Championships will be in Barcelona, Spain, from Sept. 17-26, so let's train for them!
