Team Baghdad and its members Kristian Nergaard, Herman Horn-Johannesen and Trond Solli Sæther continued the domination of the 5.5 European Championships and won the event in convincing style. The team had 6 wins in the 9 race championships and ended up 10 points ahead of 2nd placed “Caracole” from Switzerland in the 21 boat fleet.
Next major 5.5 metre championship is the World Championships in Santo Stefano on the italian west coast early next year.
– Of course we are very happy with the win, says helmsman and skipper Kristian Nergaard. Long term crew member Trond is good to rely on and Herman Horn-Johannesen were able to join the team on a pretty short notice and that was really great, ends Kristian.
