The sixth and last day of the 470 - 2021 European Championship concluded in Vilamoura, with the Medal Race.

Winds were again light, and delivered three fantastic Medal Races, with plenty of action.

Only the top 10 crews from each fleet sailed the Medal Race, the best 60 sailors were out in Vilamoura waters, fighting for the podium positions.

Non-stop action all along the day, with the Men's fleet having "drama" up to last minute.

Overall Results: (top three in each category)

Mixed Fleet:
1. Nitai Hasson and Saar Tamir from Israel - European Champions
2. Theres Dahnke and Matti Cipra from Germany
3. Vita Heathcote and Ryan Orr from GBR

Men's Fleet:
1. Kevin Peponnet and Jeremie Mion from France - European Champions
2. Jordi Xammar and Nicolas Rodriguez from Spain
3. Anton Dahlberg and Fredrik Bergstrom from Sweden

Women's fleet:
1. Camille Lecointre and Aloise Retornaz from France - European Champions
2. Hannah Mills and Eilidh McIntyre from GBR
3. Linda Fahrni and Maja Siegenthaler from Switzerland

Open Men's European:
1. Paul Snow-Hansen and Dan Willcox from New Zealand - Open European Champions.
2. Kevin Peponnet and Jeremie Mion from France
3. Jordi Xammar and Nicolas Rodriguez from Spain

The next stop of the Olympic fleets will be Enoshima, Japan, in July.

The European Championship in Vilamoura was the last chance for the fleet to meet and test before the Olympic Games. And what a test! 6 days of amazing sailing, with a variety of conditions allowing everyone to have a shot at the tittles.

No races were missed, despite the mostly light wind conditions and a lot of fun and great spirit among everyone.
