Last Storm Regatta Hosted In Lithuania
Taking place over the 25-26 September, the Last Storm Regatta was contested by eleven 470s from Lithuania and Latvia and hosted by the Kaunas Yacht Club.
There has been a resurgence in participation in the 470 Class in Lithuania, with the fleet growing from 4 boats participating in 2008 to the eleven boats this year.
After 7 races contested in light winds, victory went to Raimondas Šiugždinis and Ričardas Novošinskas (LTU) who put together a series of top three results, including three bullets. Two points adrift in second were Rytis Alksnevičius and Marius Klišaitis. Coming in third were Laurynas Rimšas and Justas Balčiūnas.
