The Beginner Beats The Experts At The Final Of Star Sailors League

This is for the second time that the Brazilian crew has claimed the win in the final of Star Sailors League (SSL), however, on this instance; this wasn’t the choice of bookies.

Henry Boeing and Robert Scheidt, the legends of Olympic were the right choice for going into the event and subjugated the final four days of Nassau Qualifier rounds, but PedroTrouche and Jorge Zarif Jorge were the ones who triumph every stage today. Both the sailors are at the age of 26 and 27. Zarif is the Star World Champion and also the winner of Finn Gold Cup 2013, and the Trouche is the first sailing crew who is younger than 40 and have got the victory in the annual event. Theevent’s aim is to decide the sailing world top ‘star’.Zarif after the race said, “It is surprising for us that we had the type of dominance, and this is due to the high level of this event. Today, we sailed the best by putting ourall the efforts. Yes, we gave our 100%, pumping and hiking every time and I believe what made the difference. For us, it is an opportunity that we are here and also a great result that we managed to beat those experienced sailors.”

The sky today was overcast and the course was moved back and inside the Montague Bay of Nassau.The easterly wind was blowing straight into the Bay and the guests at that time were reaching up to 20 knots. The day started with eight quarter-finalists battling with each other. Trouche and Zarif got the victory with the last three Arthur Lopes/ Paul Cayard, Samuel Goncalves/ Lars Grael and Edoardo Natucci/Freddy Lööf for eliminated.
