Today was the last day of 2004 Star European Championship. Xavier Rohart was the winner of today.
The start was at 12.39 With just a penalisation for the Swiss Daniel Stegmeier. The meteorological conditions havve been better than the other days.
The Swede Lööf needed only a sixth place to become the champion. But once again he proved to be a strong man as he showed during all the championship.
Todays race has been very disputed with constant changes in the first position showing the high quality of the skippers and crews. Percy was first but later he started loosing positions and finished at the fourth position.The Canadian Ross McDonald was fifth.
Finally the Spanish crew couldn’t do better than a thirty one place. Not even the Brazilian Torben Grael did his best race, he finished in place nr twenty six.
Xavier Rohar, the French skipper fought hard during all the championship and he is very satisfied with his crew Pascal Rambeau
