18ft Skiff Euro Grand Prix - Pica wins final day and series

Pica took the 18ft Skiff Euro Grand Prix at Sandbanks, Poole

The fight for first was between team Pica and team Be Light.

Both teams pushed each other hard however Pica had the best score sheet with a 1, 5, 1 securing them the event win with Be Light in second.

The race for the final podium spot was hotly contested between Chameleon I and Original Chia.

Experience in overpowered big rig conditions paid ultimately with the Danes holding off a strong charge from Chameleon I to secure third.

The final day of the European 18 foot skiff Grand Prix at Sandbanks saw a split in rig choices.

Some teams opted to rig for the dropping breeze forecast while others rigged for the stronger gusts.

Ultimately, there was a slight upwind advantage with the smaller rigs however the huge big rig sail plan allowed for heavier teams to sail deeper downwind.
