Congratulations to Chester sailors Georgia & Antonia Lewin-LaFrance for winning the bronze medal at the 49erFX European Championships that wrapped up yesterday in Thessaloniki, Greece.
The 37 boat fleet competed in 15 races over 6 days in the Greece sun and heat.
The sisters secured 3rd place by a strong showing in their first-ever medal race.
The team now heads back to Nova Scotia before heading to Oman in November for the 2021 World Championships. Following that their focus will be on the 2022 World Championships which will be held in St. Margarets Bay in early September.
Cheering them on in Greece was Sail NS Exceutive Director Frank Denis and President Eric Hill. The two were there along with the General Manager of the 2022 Worlds to better understand planning for the Worlds here.
