Australian 4.7’s in European’s Patras, Greece

Brooke Wilson at European 4.7 Championships in Patras

The European Laser 4.7 Championships recently concluded in Patras, Greece with several Australians competing.

The sailors had some difficult conditions to contend with encountering both too much wind and not enough at different stages throughout the regatta. One evening the sailors only returned to shore at sunset at 9pm!

In the Girls fleet of 104 boats the Australian’s had the following results:

11th (3rd U16) – Brooke Wilson
20th – Sylvie Stannage
25th – Mina Ferguson
30th – Joanne Gavin
67th – Jade Gavin

In the Boys fleet Boston Cortis (NSW) finished 32nd out of the 200 boats.

All of these sailors will now commence training in preparation for the World Laser 4.7 Championships in Gdynia, Poland in July.
