Gruber and Imbert win Sail Melbourne

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Florian Gruber (GER, North) and Ariane Imbert (FRA, North) have won Sail Melbourne. In second came Torrin Bright (NZL, Ozone/Mikes Lab)) and Adam Vance (Ozone/Mikes Lab) for the men, as well as  Lisa Hickmann (AUS, Ozone/RRD) and Astrid Berz (SUI, Ozone/Aguera) for the women.

The medal race series were held on a new short track course with a reaching start, very similar to the Americas Cup racing format. Races took app. 5 minutes and were conducted in an elimination series, leading up to a final with the top 4 men. Gruber and Bright were both pre-seeded for the final, while Vance fought his way up from 6th position to win bronce in the end.

For the women, the same course setup was used but races counted for their 15-race single series.
