2020 Star European Championship at Fraglia Vela Riva - Day 3

by Rachele Vitello 31 Oct 2020 15:17 PDT 29 October - 1 November 2020

Two more extraordinary races sailed today in Riva del Garda, Italy, on the third day of racing at the 2020 Star European Championship, organised by the International Star Class with Fraglia Vela Riva and supported by Negri Nautica, Fritz Segel and Sambonet.

A strong wind from the North allowed the fleet to keep the schedule and close today Race Five and Six in the morning, granting the teams to throw out their worst score.

European Champion Diego Negri with crew Sergio Lambertenghi (ITA) were on fire today, after a very slow start of the championship, winning both races with a huge margin over the rest of the fleet, and by discarding a 10th they jump up to fourth place, two points away from the podium. In third place provisional we find the Croatian duo Tonci Stipanovic and Tudor Bilic, in second the Austrian team comprised of Hans Spitzauer and Christian Nehammer and on top, after four days leading, Piet Eckert (SUI) and Frederico Melo (POR) who discarded today their worst score so far, a seventh.

One more day tomorrow, and only one more race allowed to reach the maximum of seven races scheduled by the Notice of Race. If Negri/Lambertenghi can still aim for podium, the mission looks almost impossible for the team in the provisional rankings, 2017 Star World Champion Eivind Melleby with Martin Hejlsberg (NOR), eight points away from third. Nonetheless, we might still see some changes among the top teams, and the fight for the title of 2020 European Champion will be fierce tomorrow on the water, don't miss the action on the Class's social channels, Facebook and Instagram.
