Zeilduo Zegers/Van Veen grabs silver at the Delta Lloyd Regatta
The zeilduo Afrodite Zegers/Anneloes van Veen Friday during the Delta Lloyd Regatta in Medemblik silver captured in the mixed 470 class.
The European champions needed the victory to the Russians Pavel Sozikin and Denis Gribanov. This makes the fifth triumph of the season, after Miami, Palma, Hyères, and Marseille, have to wait.
The olympic couple began to medalrace with four points behind Sozikin and Gribanov. The Dutch were therefore in each case for the klassementsleiders end to have a chance at the victory.
That did not work, because the Russians won the slotrace. Zegers and Van Veen finished as the third, but kept their second place in the gc.
Olympic champion Marit Bouwmeester rose in the ranking of the Laser Radial to the second place thanks to two victories. In the lead the Japanese Manami Doi. The hole with Builder is less than eighteen points.
Two-time olympic champion Dorian van Rijsselberghe and Kiran Badloe compete Saturday at the windsurfers also to the medals.
