Wind power...

420 & 470 Junior European Championships 2007 Medemblik, The Netherlands:
470 - The Russians feel at home:
The 470 competition also showed some big gains and losses. The Russians Basalkin and Sheremetyev had the best results (3-2-1) and took the overall lead. This duo obviously felt at home, as their home water in St. Petersburg is similar to the IJsselmeer. They smoked over the course and controlled the fleet. The Israeli Eyal/Yam had to give up their first position. The disappointment was readable from their faces.
