Dutch junior team riders Philip Meijer and Bart Lambriex won the 49'er FX World Championships under 23! Last week's regatta was held in Lelystad, the Netherlands. During the whole week the two Dutchies sailed solid and stable races in the constantly changing conditions.
To win the title it all came down to the final day, Philip and Bart only had one goal keep the lead! 'We are very proud of this result. The short race course in front of the harbour is difficult to sail, the increasing wind during the the third race was a bit of a strugle for us. Our first place in the second race of the day provided us the overall win'.
In the 49'er Class the gold medal goes to the French team Erwan Fisher and Thibault Julien.
