Optimist class: Great things are expected from this pair in the future.

TWO youngsters from the Royal Nautical Club of Palma took a bronze medal in the 420 class of the European Under 17 Championship held in Bulgaria on August 8 – 15. The win was the first medal for the crew of Albert Torres and Antoni Massanet since they first started to compete in this class.

After competing in 12 regattas, the pair finished the competition with 66 points, coming third overall, just falling behind silver medallists Matteo and Zerbi and Giulio Macaronne from Italy and Israeli winners Ido Bilik and Ofek Shalgi, champions of the tournament.

Judging by their win in this championship and their past individual performances in the Optimist class, great things are expected from this pair in the future.
