Perfect conditions for the last day of the EFG MothEuroCup

After another early, unsuccessful attempt to start in the morning northerly breeze, the sailors relaxed on shore, waiting for the southerly to fill in. After some pasta and burgers (made freshly by the great kitchen crew of Acquafresca the AP came down. With plenty of sun today, the “Ora engine” was revving up nicely across the whole lake. Under the watchful eye of the Acquafresca PRO, Luca Vangelista, four races were fired off, the last one being a three-lap race. By this time most sailors were definitely feeling their hiking muscles and had to find the extra energy in order to push through the last race. Some great battles were developing for the top spots as the sailors were swapping finishes in every race. Only Chris Rast put his stamp on this last Act by winning every single race, but not without having to fight it out with Carlo de Paoli, who showed great pace, starts and boat handling.

Rast was followed by De Paoli and Galeotti who after an OCS in the last race had to wait and see if Matthias Renker would finish well enough to claim the remaining spot on the podium. With a third in the last race for Renker he fell one point short of Galeotti and will have to seek revenge at the upcoming Swiss Nationals in Geneva at the End of October.
With a solid five Act wins it is also Chris Rast that walks away with the Euro 3000 prize money for winning the overall EFG MothEuroCup ranking for 2014.

This marks the end of the second edition of the MothEuroCup. Thanks to our main sponsor EFG we were able to take the circuit to the next level and are looking forward to bringing more Moth Sailors to our great events next year.

A big thank you also goes out to our other sponsors, Slam and Mach2, which provided a considerable amount of prizes to all competitors throughout the year.
