The last result consolidates Lars grael as the most local winner with 10 titles. Guilherme de Almeida celebrated his third championship.
The event brought 13 doubles. Marcelo Fuchs and Arthur Lopes finished in second and Robert Rittscher and Marcelo Jordão in third.
The key to Lars Grael and Guilherme de Almeida's victory was their performance on the first day of the championship, on July 9th. The sailors did not give their opponents a chance and won all three races of the day.
On Saturday July 10th, the winds did not appear and only one race was held with Marcelo Fuchs and Arthur Lopes winning. On the last day, on Sunday (11), again the weather did not helped the sailors!
But the regatta committee found conditions to do a race in the late afternoon. Lars and Guilherme finished in third place and confirmed tthe title.
''Was a championship with impeccable organization of the 7th District Star Class and YCSA, which is a great club host. Was a very high technical level, with World and South American champions'', said Lars Grael.
''We were lucky to get all five races in three days. The forecast wasn't good, but we did it. It was a very competitive championship from second to fifth. The class showed its strength during a pandemic by putting 13 boats in the water”, explained Arthur Lopes, Star class VII District.
