Euromed International Championship

Tommaso De Fontes wins Mapfre Middlesea Euromed Regatta.
Four days of intensive sailing draw to a close

The Mapfre Middlesea Euromed Regatta, hosted by Malta Young Sailors Club under the auspices of the Malta Sailing Federation drew to a close early on Sunday afternoon when the last races of the Championships were held in Mellieħa Bay.

Race Officer Peter Dimech gave insight as to the overall proceedings of the Championships which saw the Optimist Fleets sail a total of seven qualifying races after which the fleet were split into Gold, Silver and Bronze fleets. Whilst the Gold and Bronze Fleets sailed five races in the final stage, the Silver fleet saw only four races being held. The Beginners fleet were kept ashore due to the wind strength, which topped 36 knots at a certain point. The Laser Class sailed a total of ten races, two of which were held early on Sunday morning.

Optimist Class

Italian Tommaso De Fontes, was declared the overall winner of the 20th edition of the Mapfre Middle Sea Euromed Regatta. Racing in the Seniors Gold Fleet De Fontes had a comfortable advantage over second placed European Optimist Champion Alessandro Cortese, with 11points separating the two. In third place was Michele Luigi Adorni. The top three Maltese sailors in this division were all products of Malta Young Sailors Club - Antonio Gasperini, Benjamin Vassallo and Nicolas Drescher, who classified 10th, 11th and 12th overall.

In the Gold Cadet Division, Eric Fenech Pace, also representing host Club, Malta Young Sailors, maintained his first placing in this division. Timmy Vassallo another Malta Young Sailors Club cadet followed Fenech Pace in second place and in third place was Kostantinos Portosalte (GRE). Fenech Pace registered a 16th overall placing in the Gold Fleet.

The Silver Fleet Senior podium was made up of Mia Klaboe (NOR), Finian Morris (GBR) and Luke Turvey (IRL), whilst the top ranking Maltese sailors were Danjel Fenech (Birzebbugia Sailing Club), Leonardo Procopio and Flynn Mifsud – both Malta Young Sailors Club. In the Cadet Division, Jonas Micallef was in first and 9th overall. He was followed by Pierluigi Taccon Acton (ITA) and Artem Cherpita (RUS).

Places changed for the trio that were in the top rankings for the Bronze fleet until yesterday. Giuseppe Gaetano, won the division followed by Oscar Morgan Harris (GBR) and Marta La Greca (IGZ). Matthew Cachia Debono, Maximilan Formosa and Andrene Azzopardi, were the top Maltese sailors in the Bronze Senior Fleet. Wrapping up the results were the Bronze Cadet podium which was made up of Daniil Iarchenkov (RUS) ,Gilda Nasti (ITA) and Simone Paturzo (ITA). Oliver Drescher, Emily Fenech and Nicolai Bartolo were the Maltese with the best results in this division.

There were no races for the Beginners’ Class, therefore placings remained unchanged from yesterday, meaning that the podium is made up of Alexander Fastenko (RUS), Felix Mulder (HKG) and Veronika Basalkina (RUS). First Maltese in this class was Poyraz Fidanboy (Royal Malta Yacht Club) who was just one point away from third place.

Laser Class

On Sunday morning, the Laser Class started earlier to avail themselves of the course prepared for the Optimist fleet. The Laser 4.7 Class saw Swiss Anja Von Allmen cruise to an unbeaten run, thus winning the overall class title. In today’ races Saul Vassallo (Malta Young Sailors Club) and Georg Erik Ristall hadd two second places each, whilst Matthew Flores (Birzebbugia Sailing Club) came in third place. Despite a good showing, Flores’ missed out on overall third place with just three points behind Ristall. In the overall classifcation, the top three podium placings were reserved for Von Allmen (SUI), Saul Vassallo (MLT) and Georg Erik Ristall (EST).

The Laser Radial Fleet saw Gregory Mifsud win the two races of the day, thus securing an overall second place on the podium. Rankings leader Zachary Zammit, who is suffering from a niggling ankle injury, had to settle for second place in the first race and did not compete in the second race. Nevertheless his performance throughout the duration of the championship saw him secure the overall title. Matthew Micallef who had been consistently second throughout the first three days had to settle for third place just one point behind Mifsud, making it an all Malta Young Sailors’ Club podium for this Category.

A Prize Giving ceremony took place later on in the evening in the presence of Mr. Boris Curmi, Chief Commercial Officer, Mapfre Middlesea plc, Mr. John Huber, Chairman Yachting Malta and representatives of the Maltese Olympic Committee.

“The 20th edition of Mapfre Middlesea Euromed Regatta has been a success. The event has grown and keeps attracting some very high level sailors which really puts Malta on the international sailing map and gives our local sailors a wonderful opportunity to race against some of the best sailors in Europe – case in point is Alessandro Cortese, European Optimist Champion and Anja Von Allmen – Under 21 World Champion Laser 4.7. Of course Malta Young Sailors is particularly proud of its sailors who performed so well in this championship,” enthused Chris Bajada, Commodore, Malta Young Sailors Club. “There are no words to describe the satisfaction and gratitude that we have towards the volunteers who have put in so much hard work, not just during the event but also in the months leading to it. Of course this event would not be possible without the collaboration of Mapfre Middlesea plc and Yachting Malta who have been supporting this event for a number of years”

Malta Young Sailors Club will be hosting the 21st Edition of the Euromed Regatta will take place between the 19th and 22nd December 2020. For more information visit euromed.maltayoungsailors.com/

Euromed International Championship

Tricky conditions challenge Mapfre Middlesea Euromed Regatta fleet.

The optimal conditions experienced yesterday were short lived and the third day of the Mapfre Middlesea Euromed Regatta has proven to be, by far, the most challenging for the 230 strong fleet which raced in winds of approximately 19 – 23 knots.

The strong winds that reached up to 37 knots further out of the harbour resulted in racing taking place closer to the shore. One race being held in the morning before the fleet was called back in by the Race Committee. After being on stand by for approximately two hours, the Optimist (Senior and Cadet) fleet returned to the water where they managed to compete in a further two races.

Optimist Class

Following the results of the previous two days, the Optimist Cadet and Senior fleets were split into Gold, Silver and Bronze fleets.

In the Senior Gold Fleet, despite a bit of a shaky start, European Champion Alessandro Cortese has slowly climbed up the rankings and is now currently in second place behind Tommaso de Fontes who has had a consistent run throughout. In third place is Michele Luigi Adorni. The top three Maltese sailors for this category are Antonio Gasperini, Nicolas Drescher and Benjamin Vassallo. Meanwhile in the Cadet Gold Fleet – Eric Fenech Pace, maintains his top ranking in this category followed by Timmy Vassallo. Third in this category is Russian Nicholay Larchenkov.

The top three Seniors in the Silver Fleet were Mia Klaboe (Norway), Finian Morris (Great Britain) and Luke Turvey (Ireland). Top ranked Maltese in this division is Danjel Fenech. Leading the Cadet division is Pierluigi Taccon Acton followed by Jonas Micallef and Artem Cherpita (Russia).

The Bronze Fleet Seniors ranking is led by Marta La Greca (Italy), Oscar Morgan Harris (Great Britain) and Giuseppe Gaetano (Italy). The first ranked Maltese here is Maximilian Formosa followed by Andrene Azzopardi. The Cadet Division is led by Anatoli Zoubovski (Cyprus) followed by Italians Gilda Nasti and Simone Paturzo.

In the Beginners’ Class, the fleet had one race in the morning. Leading sailor Alexander Fastenko did not compete this morning, whilst second placed Felix Mulder retired. Despite this, both still retain the lead they established from the two days of racing. In third place was Veronika Basalkina, who won the only race of the day for the class.

Laser Class

It was just one race in the morning for the Laser 4.7 and Radial fleets on Saturday morning. Perhaps the most notable action of the day was the act of sportsmanship by Anja Von Allmen. With just ten minutes to go for the start of the race, Under 21 Laser 4.7 World Champion Von Allmen noticed that American sailor Liliann Lucas had capsized and was struggling to get her boat upright. Von Allmen, knowing full well that the race was not going to be postponed and could have easily lost the start, sailed over to Lucas, pulled her out of the water and helped her get on the boat just in time for both to start the race.

Cool and collected, after having successfully helped Lucas to the start of the race, Anja Von Allmen continued her winning vein to remain in top position. Today’s racing saw second place being taken up by George Erik Ristall, whilst Lacey Aquilina came in third place. These results did not affect yesterday’s rankings, with Von Allmen maintaining a comfortable advantage over second placed Saul Vassallo. Nevertheless Vassallo has maintained a constant performance throughout, leading over third placed George Erik Ristall with four points.

In the Radial Class, the win for the day was taken by Gregory Mifsud, yet Zachary Zammit maintains his overall lead, followed by Matthew Micallef. Mifsud’s performance today enabled him to climb to third place.

All results are currently provisional.

The Mapfre Middlesea Euromed Regatta is being hosted by Malta Young Sailors, under the auspices of the Malta Sailing Federation. The Regatta is sponsored by Mapfre Middlesea plc and supported by Yachting Malta Ltd.

The final day of Racing takes place on Sunday 22nd December. Weather permitting racing should start at 10:00am. Prize Giving will be held on the day at 6pm. For latest updates and official results please visit euromed.maltayoungsailors.com/
