On the last day of the European Championship 2023 at Lake Achensee, the sailors faced challenging conditions, just like on the previous days. The wind was blowing from the north and alternated between strong gusts of up to 18 knots and light winds of 6 knots.
Wind shifts as well as the close points difference on the last day promised the competitors a highly exciting finish in the 5th and 6th race. They also required the competitors to constantly adjust strategies and courses where every tactical decision decided the outcome.
After the races, the award ceremony took place at 6:30 pm, where the winners of the 2023 European Championship were announced:
1st place: Trecul Yoann and Ferrand Thomas
2nd place: Steiner Marcel and Steiner Ben
