Anna Munch also based her triumph on a consistent work, finishing Women’s regatta on top with 70 points (2-15-3-2-6-4-
38-12-1-2-20-3), closely followed by Italian sailor and Silver medalist Carolina Albano ITA with 79.
“It was a very difficult regatta. The wind was very tricky and shifty and with only one discard for 12 races you had to make a stable series. Everyone had at least one bad race, so you had to keep cool till the end. Before the last race I was second and everything could happen but fortunately I managed to make a good race and secure the win. I’m super happy right now and it’s really just unbelievable. It’s surely a dream coming true”, declared Anna after the races.
Louise Cervera FRA (6th), Emma Savelon NED (7th), Magdalena Kwasna POL (8th) and Caroline Rosmo NOR (10th) also sailed in great shape, concluding this 2018 Laser U21 World championship among Top 10.
