Anton Dahlberg and Lovisa Karlsson of Sweden finished eighth in the Medal Race to confirm their 470 Mixed European Championship 2022 Title.
Spain’s Jordi Xammer and Nora Brugman were the only pair able to spoil the Swedish pair’s day . . . but were unable to gain any advantage and finished in ninth behind Dahlberg and Karlsson to take silver.
Strong winds provide a suitably spectacular medal race for the ten finalists, with the bronze medal up for grabs for the chasing pack.
Hippolyte Machetti and Aloïse Retornaz of France stormed away from the start to lead to the finish, hoping that they could snatch the bronze, but Giacomo Ferrari and Bianca Caruso of Italy, finishing in fourth did enough to retain their bronze medal position.
Martin Wrigley and Eilidh McIntyre of Britain finished seventh in the medal race and ninth overall.
