International Canoe Europa Cup - Final in Berlin

The final three races of the 2018 IC Europa Cup had a grandstand finish with the races held directly in front of the Deutsch-Britischer Yacht Club

After Current world champion Robin Wood won the first two races of the day he just needed to finish the final race to secure the championship.

Chris Hampe and Shaun Anderson were now tied on points in the race to be second.

In this final race, the wind was occasionally veering to the east with significant changes in pressure. Wood led Anderson at the windward mark.

On the run, the wind died allowing the lead boats to pull away into a significant lead.

There was then an uncharacteristic error from Wood as he headed upwind mistaking one of the channel marker buoys for the windward mark.

This allowed Anderson to come through for the win and secure the second-place spot.

Axel Bierwagen also slipped past Wood to ensure fourth place and secure the German national championship.
