RS Feva Eurocup Grand Final 2015

Another beautiful morning in Muiderzand greeted sailors on arrival this morning. A light breeze had filled in across the course and racing got underway on time.

It was Jack Lewis and Lucas Marshall of GBR that got off to a flying start, leading to the first mark and extending their lead as the race progressed. Meanwhile Jakub Dobry and Tereza Dobra (CZE) and Lizet de Vries and Jildou Gerritsen (NED) fought hard for second. The pair could be heard shouting coming into the final leeward mark as the Dutch team luffed hard to secure themselves the inside lane out of the mark. It was the Czechs that eventually found a burst of speed to just shoot ahead for the finish.

As race two established, the breeze started to fizzle on the left and boats that had tacked early began to look strong but a left shift with a breeze increase at the top changed things and the group, led by Lucas and Marshall popped out in front. Four boats rounded the windward mark at the same time, dodging each other as they hoisted and all vying for pole position to get themselves clear. Clear wind became ever more important as the breeze increased and stabilised; boat speed was king. De Vries and Gerritsen (NED) found their zone, leading Jip and Lot Groen to the finish but not catching the Brits, who had disappeared off on a ‘horizon job’!

The wind built to around 15 knots for race three, and the typical Markermeer chop built with it. A different kind of sailing was called for as sailors had to work their boats hard in the breeze and over the waves. Reverting to their battles of previous races, Jakub Dobry and Tereza Dobra from the Czech Republic chased Lewis and Marshall to the finish ahead of Ties van der Stroom and Floris Breuking of the Netherlands.

Two remaining races of the day saw little change at the front of the fleet. Lewis and Marshall grew ever more confident and continued their winning streak to the end, posting a perfect score for the day and after a difficult day yesterday managed to pull off the overall event win in style. After a stonking start to the regatta, Dobry and Dobra (CZE) managed to hold on to finish in second overall, while de Vries and Gerritsen (NED) proved to be in their element in the breeze today and several top three results pushed them into third place overall. Czech team, Jaroslav Cermak and Petr Kostal took fourth overall ahead of van der Stroom and Breuking (NED).

With nine races over two days, a range of conditions and a friendly atmosphere, Holland has delivered and it’s been a fabulous way to end the first ever RS Feva Eurocup series. Lewis and Marshall (GBR) were crowned Eurocup Champions. Behind them, the Czech battle has been evident from the start and after swapping positions throughout the series, Cermak and Kostal took silver ahead of teammates Dobry and Dobra and Barbora Pourova and Jiri Smrcka. Fifth place was snatched by Lithuanian helm, Simonas Jersovas, who was crewed by both Kajus Oskutis and Vejas Strelciunas. Sixth overall in the series and leading the dutch contingent was Mette Rijke and Merle Louvinge.
