German Siblings Win at Izola Spring Cup in Slovenia
A consistent performance from Germany's Jolanda Lene Muller/Arvid Jannes Muller rewarded them with victory at the Izola Spring Cup in Slovenia.
The six-race series was hosted at Yacht Club Burja Izola, from 24-28 March 2016, attracting an international fleet of thirty-seven 420 teams from Austria, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Slovenia and Spain.
The Mullers opened with a safe 4th place in the 37 boat fleet, upgrading to a win, and then simply continued to sail strong. Their closest challengers were Austrian sisters Theresa Schiemer/Johanna Schiemer, who pulled back from an opening 19th place finish in the first race to sail a top ten scoreline and finish just 2 points off the German pair. Thrid to Germany's Lennart Kuss/Paul Arp.
The fleet raced as an open fleet, with mixed, boys and girls teams all in the mix. A strong showing at the event from the girls teams, pitched four teams into top ten overall.
