European Star Winter Circuit: great victory for Sweden's Tom Lofsted

The European Star Winter Circuit ended this weekend in Sanremo, after the stage in Nice and Monaco, organized by the Sanremo Yacht Club with the support of the Municipality of Sanremo.

Five races disputed and one gap: three beautiful tests on Friday, with a thermal 7/8 knots that allowed the crews to tactically challenge themselves on a very technical edge. Saturday a beautiful east between 18 and 20 knots and two exciting tests, and then increase to 24 knots, forcing boats on the ground.

European Star Winter Circuit: Tom Lofsted's great victory

The Sanremo stage was won by the Swedish crew of Tom Lofstedt and Joost Houweling, first Grand Master. A victory, however, striking: on five tests the crew was classified three times first and once second and third time. Second the crew composed by the Austrians Christian Nehammer and Florian Urban and in third place the Russians Alexey Zhivotovskiy and Lev Shnyr.

First Master Crew the Germans Christian Paucsch and Melanie Bentele.

Next meeting on April 28/29 with the Gianni Cozzi Trophy, organized in collaboration with the Yacht Club Aregai
