Austrians and Australians

A report from the final day of racing at the Tornado Europeans in Cagliari

Sunday June 15th 2003, Author: James Boyd, Location: Italy
At the Tornado Europeans in Cagliari, Sardinia, Austrians Andreas Hagara and Michael Seidl, the Gold medallists from Sydney, won the championship with a race to spare from fellow countrymen Roman Hagara and Hans Peter Steinacher, with Russians Andrey Kirilyu and Valery Ushkov in third.

In the Open event for the Mats Nyberg Trophy, 2002 world champions Darren Bundock and John Forbes from Australia (as opposed to Austria) won for the event by nine points from Hagara/Seidl in the final race of the series.

The final day of the competition saw British pair Hugh Styles and Adam May pull it out of the bag when it was needed, winning the first race and coming fifth in the second race to finish fifth overall.

Styles commented, "the regatta has been one of the toughest I have sailed with big shifts and pressure differences on the race course in every race. This is why Adam and I are so pleased that we finished the regatta on such a high note - winning the ninth race. This puts us right on track for a top performance in Cadiz at the worlds."

Fellow British sailors Leigh McMillan and Mark Bulkeley had a slightly disappointing championships, after their win last month at SPA Regatta in Holland, finishing in 16th place overall. Team mate Rob Wilson who was sailing for the first time with new crew Martin Sellars finished in 21st place overall. "The last four races have been extremely difficult with very light flukey winds," said Wilson. "However I am very happy with my new crew and look forward to next event."

RYA Olympic Manager Stephen Park commented, "It was a difficult regatta in very light and shifty conditions. Hugh and Adam managed to keep their cool, performing best on the last day, whilst Leigh and Mark will be disappointed. Rob Wilson and Martin Sellars will be pleased with the progress made in their first week sailing together."
