It was a perfect last day of racing in Porto Cervo, Italy at the Audi SAILING Champions League that saw the German team from Segel-und Motorboot Club Überlingen cinch the highest spot on the podium. The Italian team from Aeronautica Militare came in second ahead of the Swiss team from Seglervereinigung Kreuzlingen in third place. After a mixed bag of results in the previous days of J/70 racing, Sunday the German team from Segel-und Motorboot Club Überlingen stayed concentrated and had their best day. With two wins out of four races, they are now the champions of the SAILING Champions League 2020. Michael Illbruck, Commodore of the YCCS, had these words, “In four days, we have seen all kinds of weather conditions; the teams sailed in gusts at up to 30 knots. I have to say that it has been a real challenge for the 27 teams that have participated! Events like these embody the fundamental values of sailing like sporting spirit, competitiveness and a sense of belonging with one’s club. We hope to welcome many teams again next year here in Porto Cervo!”
