By 27 May 2017 Frontslider, News

At the beginning of the day the top 5 was really close. After the first two races, the gap is getting bigger. The Croatian Nincevic and Cupac are going into the final race seven points ahead of Bekkering and Kisters. At this race they manage to take the lead once again and secure their gold medal at this Delta Lloyd Regatta. Nincevic: “It was really close racing. If you made one little mistake you could lose everything. It was a hard course as well, great for spectators but difficult for us with many tacks.”

Dutchies Bekkering and Kisters’ only job was to watch the British Pink and Ainsworth and with a fourth place in the final race, they secured their silver medal. “We learned every day this week. Today we had a good second race, the final race was hard for us. Very happy with this second place.”

Pink: “We were very close to a second place, but are also happy with this third place. It’s our first event together, so not a bad result.”
