PERFECT WINNING SCORECARD AT ATHENS EUROLYMP
Telis Athanasopoulos/Dimitrios Tassios couldn’t have made any improvements on their scorecard, as the pair won each of the 6 races at Athens Europlymp in Greece from 10-12 March 2017.
The event also served as the 420 National Championship, so competition was intense, particularly as the same venue, NOTK, will be hosting the 2017 420 European Championships, 22-30 July 2017.
But the rest of 34-boat fleet were left to fight for the leaderboad positions behind the brilliance of Athanasopoulos/Tassios, with Nikolaos Giotopoulos/Petros Mamounis finishing 2nd and top girls team in 3rd overall were Evangelia Drougka/Eva-Maria Vardali.
Athanasopoulos/Tassios picked up the silver medal at the 2016 420 Junior European Championship in Hungary fresh off the back of winning the U17 420 World Championships in Italy. It will be interest to see what their Championship goals are in 2017 - particularly on home waters and at their home club for the 2017 420 Europeans?
