470 European Championships 2021

In the 29 strong Men’s fleet the New Zealanders Paul Snow-Hansen and Daniel Willcox moved to first place followed closely by the Spanish crew Jordi Xammar and Nicolas Rodriguez just 2pts behind, with Olympic champions Mathew Belcher and Will Ryan completing the top three another 2pts behind Xammar.

In the Women’s fleet, the World Champions, Silvia Mas Depares and Patricia Cantero (ESP) are leading the 18 entries, with 11pts having sailed a very consistent day. The French team of Camille Lecointre and Aloise Retornaz dropped one place and are now in a close second, followed by the Brazilians Fernanda Oliveira and Ana Barbachan who had a fantastic day winning both races.

The Mixed fleet, the largest at Vilamoura, saw big changes in the leader board. Nitai Hasson and Saar Tamir (ISR) retained the overall lead but are now followed by the bronze medallists of the 2021 World Championship, Amy Seabright and James Taylor (GBR) 5 pts behind, with Louisa Nordstrom and Trevor Bornarth from USA in third place.

For the 34 teams already selected to participate in the Olympic Games sailing in the regatta, this event is their last major test before the Games. Most teams are at the top of their game and ready to have a try at their Olympic dream.
