ANTONIA KUSTERA/MARIS BASIC WIN CROATIAN NATIONALS WITH ALL WIN SCORECARD
The 2019 Croatian 420 National Championships was hosted from 13-15 September at JK Marina Kastela, located just north-west of Split.
A line-up of 11 teams competed in the 5 race series held over three days, which saw exceptionally light winds for the opening day before building to a more challenging breeze.
Antonia Kustera/Maris Basic knocked out race win after win, steadily increasing their points gap over the rest of the fleet, to win on a 7 point advantage. The pair competed on the international stage at this year's 420 Junior Europeans in Spain, where they racked up some strong results.
Three teams were in a tight tussle for second and third, with just 2 points separating them come the final race. Petra Lukaeic/Darija Peric were rewarded with second overall and Mistral Matulja/Iris Matulja picked up third place. The top U17 team were Eva Sisko/Marta Mavar in fourth overall.
