Euro Cup 2002

Medemblik, Netherlands

To Results

17 - 24 August

Only 38 Boats attended at the Euro Cup.
The organization was, as expected, perfect, with Erik Vliegenhart, OK Sailor himself, as Race officer on the water.
Despite the light and shifty winds, all races were held in more or less fair conditions and courses were perfect.
The goal of 70 minutes racing was missed by the first boat by only 2-3 minutes every race, even if the conditions changed a lot during some races.
The strongest breeze during the week was a 15.4 knot gust.
Due to short breaks between the race, to sail three races a day was no problem at all.
Tuesday was no racing as the wind never filled in, Friday only two races as there was very light wind.
Many sailors apreciated the format of 15 scheduled races, but were not sure if that's the right format for upcoming Worlds.

The absence of an on-the-water-jury led to some pumping and rocking, especially in these lighth conditions, so it seems like on-the-water-judging is mandatory for events like this, even if the top guys seemed to sail within the rules.
So an Internationla Jury in the OK is less for Protests (as we know) as for the yellow Flag.
