CLOSE BATTLE AT AUSTRIAN YOUTH NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
A battle to the end for the leading teams competing at the 2016 Austrian Youth National Championships at the Yaht Club Bregenz on Lake Obersee Bodensee, located right at the western point of Austria, from 30 August – 3 September.
A strong field of 27 boats saw four German teams join the line-up at the nation's premier youth sailing event, which also featured racing for Optimist, Laser Radial and Zoom 8 sailors.
A close call to glory in the 420 fleet, but ultimately the final race 8 did not change the final podium, but with just 3 points separating the top three teams the outcome was wide open.
A string of top finishes saw Niclas Lehmann/Sarah Kofler lead into the final race, and their 4th place was enough to maintain their edge over sisters Theresa Schiemer/Johanna Schiemer.
Final race pressure seemed to get to Yannis Saje/Johannes Reder who scored their worst result, a 10th place in race 8, which they discarded to finish in third overall.
