There were 80 RS Fevas’ at the European RS Feva Championships at CV Gargnano, Lake Garda, Italy last weekend .
Royal Torbay Yacht Club had four members racing out in Italy; The all girl team of Jess & Caitlin and brothers Finn and Dan.
The girls, Jess and Caitlin, were consistent over the event but the wind was not, with a lack of wind over the whole championship. Out of the 10 races planned only 7 were actually finished. Caitlin and Jess were 1st Junior girls home after 3 days of racing and achieved the 2nd girls overall position and 3rd Junior position. The girls finished 23 rd overall.
Dan and Finn finished up 14th overall, taking a 1st place in the second race.

Both these teams now head straight from Italy to the UK RS FEVA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS at Rutland Sailing Club this week (29th – 31st May). They will be joined by other sailors from RTYC in their Fevas.
Congratulations to Jess, Caitlin, Dan and Finn at the Europeans we look forwards to seeing you back in Torquay and hearing of your European adventures. Good Luck to all the RTYC sailors at the Nationals this week.
