Aspire (POL 17) of Mateusz Kusznierewicz, Przemyslaw Gacek and Simon Fry has won the 2020 5.5 Metre European Championship in Sanremo, Italy.
No races were possible on the final day of the event, Saturday.
Momo (SUI 229) of Dieter Schön, Markus Wieser and Thomas Auracher was second with New Moon II (BAH 24) of Mark Holowesko, Christoph Burger and Peter Vlasov in third.
While the top nine boats were Moderns, the top Evolution boat, in the fleet of six here, was Ali Baba (GER 84) of Wolf Eberhard Richter, Beata Kallkowski and Hans Wendlandt, who spent most of the week inside the top 10 and ahead of several other moderns.
The leading Classic boat was Kukururu (ITA 6) of Giuseppe Matildi, Gianluca Marolli and Alessandro Marolli, also the oldest boat in the fleet.
She was designed by the Swede, Arvid Laurin, and built by Cantieri navali Baglietto in Italy in 1953.
A special mention must also go to Korrigan (FRA 19), built in 1961. Jaouen Gurvan spent half the week racing singlehanded as he arrived without a crew.
