SWITZERLAND'S CSP ASCONA MARKS FINAL SELECTION EVENT FOR 420 WORLDS AND JUNIOR EUROS
The wind did not play ball on Lake Maggiore for CSP Ascona, the final selection event to decide the Swiss 420 Class teams who will be heading to this year's 420 Worlds and 420 Junior Europeans.
On Saturday's opening day, the wind was very shifty and two of the four scheduled races had to be abandoned. On Sunday, the lake was like a mirror for the whole day so no hope for any racing.
After Saturday's two races, Achille Casco/Elliot Schick won the last regatta of the selection from a 3,1 scorecard to sit on 4 points overall.. Nilo Schärer/Nik Burkhard nearly managed to win the third PM in a row, but failed by just two points and finished in second overall on tiebreak over Malin Karlsson/Myrlin Tappolet in third.
We wait to hear the announcement of the final selection ranking and will be looking forward to welcoming Switzerland's teams to the 420 Worlds in Portugal and 420 Junior Europeans in Spain.
