Pieter Heerema, George Leonchuk and Lars Hedriksen Victorious in Denmark.

In the most perfect sailing conditions on the final day the 35 teams representing 13 Nations finished the Grade 1 Danish Grand Prix with two excellent races.  A windward, reward course of 1.9 nautical miles gave this highly competitive fleet the opportunity to see “Dragor” (situated by the magnificent “Oresund” bridge that link’s Denmark to Sweden) at its very best.

The final “Race 6” was a battle between NED 412 and FRA 401. FRA 401 had line donors, however holding a 5 point lead 3rd place was enough for NED 412 to win by 2 points.  Pieter, Lars & George did win the overall championship.
