Evi van Acker BEL secured Laser Radial Gold award before the medal race in Palma de Mallorca with a 26 points lead over early leader Alison Young GBR. The World #2 has collected a near to perfect score in the final stage with five wins and a second place.
“Of course I’m very happy with the races in the gold fleet. I had a rough start of the regatta but I was able to press the reset button and start over in the finals. Today was more difficult with less wind and big waves. I made two nice comebacks so I am very happy”, explains van Acker. “The goals for this year are to qualify and perform at my best at the test event in Rio this summer and at the Worlds later this year!” The two remaining medals will be coveted by the next five sailors.
