what up, esse?
Esse 850 Euro Cup in Malcesine that took place this weekend. A fantastic event superbly orchestrated by the local club. The class is gaining momentum with 27 entries and a nicely disputed championship with some high profile sailors present. Moth champion Arnaud Psarofaghis takes the title with Pierre-Yves Jorand on board. Alain Marchand takes the 2nd place, and Oliver Wolfensberger comes 3rd with swiss Match Race champion Eric Monnin and Whitbread and America’s cup veteran Christian "Blumi" Scherrer. This is an interesting class that looks like it has a nice future. Results are here and pics are here. – Boudewijn van Doorn
