The Boskalis occasional duo Gunnar Larsen and Lamberto Cesari (ITA) won the Delta Lloyd North Sea Regatta this weekend. The other three teams of Team Boskalis also performed extremely well. Jorden Veenman and Frank de Waard finished third and the mixed duo Froukje Feenstra/Mischa de Munck tenth. The just selected youngsters Jolbert van Dijk and Niels Kleijweg sailed above expectations and scored a fifteenth place in a field of 47 F-18 catamarans.
Tactically it was difficult weather, with little wind and a strong current. On Monday the races even were cancelled due to dense sea fog. Larsen: ‘The teams made a lot of progress. Team Boskalis offers a nice concept, in which we share knowledge and help each other. We have reached a new milestone with thiSaves event. The sports technical plan of each team offers many insights and benefits. Everybody knows where to focus on. In addition we have evaluated a lot.”
