Nisse Åkervall tog bronpengen i Mothklassen Europa cup.
Unfortunately the wind Gods had decided to end Act 5 of the EFG MothEuroCup early. The wind never materialized today, so the PRO decided to call it a day early. Sailors packed up their boats and by noon the prize giving was in full swing. everyone. In addition another set of checks were handed to the top three of the event. For the fourth time it was EFG team rider Chris Rast accepting the Euro 1000 check for 1st place, closely followed by Ben Paton who received Euro 500. His second podium finish this year, after his near win at Act 2 in Medemblik, Holland. Third place and with that a Euro 300 check went to Nils Akervall from Sweden. Nils has shown impressive progress throughout the year and the handsome Swede is not afraid to tell people that he has his eyes set on getting all the way to the top! As always the British sailors showed a very strong overall performance, a tribute to their high level of moth sailing in the U.K..
