420 & 470 JUNIOR EUROPEANS 2007

Medemblik, The Netherlands:
After the final qualifying race on Sunday August 12, the 470 top three was tied on ten points at the Junior European Championships 420/470 2007. The Israeli Eyal/Yam are leading on count back, followed by the Dutch Le Fèvre/Krol and the Russians Basalkin/Sheremetyev. The Belarus girls Alaeksandra and Alla took a bullet and climbed from a 41st to a 23rd position overall, which gave them as first female team a spot in the gold fleet. Four girl's crews will battle for the medals, which is one more than last year. It was a tricky day with a southerly breeze force three, but with many shifts and choppy water.
