The last day of racing was full of drama, Petite Terrible won the first race, putting pressure on overnight leader, Noticia.

The Spanish team fought back in the penultimate race, to get ahead of Petite Terrible at the crucial first top mark, only to see their spinnaker explode in a gybe.

Noticia quickly hoisted their second kite, but in a high calibre fleet they couldn't recover.

Petite Terrible held their nerve in the last race to win the J/70 Open European Championship for the second year running.
