by / Sunday, 09 July 2017 / Published in Club, Sailing

MYC’s own Josh Revkin, was crew for the 2017 Star Class World Championship winning boat, helmed by Norwegian Eivind Melleby. Proud father, Jim Revkin, representing MYC helmed the 45th place boat (with crew Alexey Selivanov). The regatta consisted of six races over seven days (July 1st – 8th), hosted in Troense, Denmark, with 70 boats in the fleet, including numerous former world champions (John MacCausland, winner of 2017 Arms-White regatta finished in 11th place).

Sample of the race editorial below as noted by Rachele Vitello, Press Officer for the Star Sailors League:

“A hard fought battle today on the 6th race of the series among the leaders and potential winners of the 94th edition of this prestigious trophy: Lars Grael was the world champion for the first 4 legs of the regatta, but suffered a big come back by the Norwegian in the last upwind. Melleby read the shifts better and was able to go from tenth position to eight with enough boats between him and the 2015 Brazilian Star World Champion.”
