Friday, April 21:
It is the Swedish team of Fredrik Loof and Anders Ekstrom who are the winners of the 2006 Eastern Hemisphere Championship. Loof/Ekstrom are two time Star Class World champions and two time European Champions, and Loof is also an Olympic champion in the Finn class. They received the winner’s trophy given by Pippo Dalla Vecchia at the Circolo di Santa Lucia in Naples. Loof, during the six races, had as a stiff competitiors the French crew of Xavier Rohart/Pascal Rambeau, other Star World Champions. In the first race of today, Rohart and Loof were side by side, ending up in the low 30s. But by the third mark of the second race, Loof had definitively won the regatta, with Rohart falling back to 5th overall. Second overall in the 70 boat fleet was taken by the American team of Mark Mendelblatt/Mark Strube.

It was a good result for the Italian sailors. On the podium in 3rd place was Luca Modena, and Diego Negri finished 4th.

Thursday, April 20:
Two of the big favorites in the Star Eastern Hemisphere Championships won the two races of today, sailed, finally, in good winds. In the first race, the French team of Rohart/Rambeau finished in front of the Swedes Loof/Ekstrom. In the second race, the places were reversed, with Loof/Ekstrom winning.

In the first race, the only boat that managed to sail in front of Loof/Ekstom and Rohart/Rambeau, were the Italians Diego Negri/Luigi Viale, who finished third. A former Laser Champion, Negri has been sailing the Star for a year with excellent results. In fourth were Roy Heiner/Alex Breuseker of the Netherlands. Another Italian team, that of Silvio Santoni/Sergio Lambertenghi, sailed with the leaders during the race and finished fifth.

In the second race the Americans Mark Mendelblatt/Mark Strube were 3rd, New Zealand’s Hamish Pepper/ David Giles were fourth and two Italian teams, Giulio Gatti/Manuele/La Porta and Luca Modena/Michele Marchesini, finished fifth and sixth.

Wednesday, April 19:
The first valid race of the Star Eastern Hemisphere Championship, organized by the Circolo Savoia, was held on Wednesday morning, April 19. Finally the Gulf of Napoli had some wind with which the championship was able to start. On Tuesday afternoon, following numerous protests from the contestants, the jury decided to abandon the race of that morning which was initially ruled valid.

On Wednesday, the first race was won by the Polish team of Kusznierewicz and Zycki, followed by the Germans Pickel/Borkowski, and the French Rohart/Rambeau. Mark Reynolds, one of the favorites, had the misfortune of breaking his mast. He retired from the first race, immediately got another mast and raced in the 2nd race. This was won by the Americans Dane/Sperry.
