Tiit Vihul: “It was a very cool championship and to helm Melges 24 again after five years, was an unforgettable feeling! The first couple of upwind legs were still awkward, but all came out very promptly. The weather was wall-to-wall and it made the competition very interesting. The competition was extremely tight, because everyone in this fleet is a strong sailor, and we would not have been able to expect to win even in our best dream!”
Melges 24 Open Estonian Championships were held in the Kalev Yacht Club, Tallinn (the venue of the Melges 24 Worlds 2010) on September 28-30, offering excitement and tension until the last race, because just during the last race, the fate of the Championship was decided. The Championship titles were grabbed by Tiit Vihul, Martin Müür, Lauri Kärner, Ago Rebane and Marilyn Koitnurm sailing on boat Rock City.
Zuxu by Peter Šaraškin secured the silver medals of the Championship, scoring an equal number of points with the winner. Lenny by Tõnu Tõniste got the bronze medals.
