European 18 Foot Skiff Grand Prix 2012 - And the winner is Team Hyde Sails, GBR 26 from the UK. congratulations to Jack Grogan, Sam Caslin and Mike Banks for a great season with victories in Hungary and the Netherlands and a second place in Germany. On the 2nd place is Team Magic Marine, GER33 from Germany followed by the winner from 2011 on 3rd place overall, Team Pica from the UK. Jamie, Steward and Tristan participated only in 3 of 5 races so this is a very honorable result. The UK-Grand Prix was a hot finish of a great season. All teams will recover and hopefully come back next year even stronger. A total of 25 teams participated in the series all over Europe with races in Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany and after three years back in the UK, this is great.
Teams that participated in all races had to drive between 12000 and 15000 kms, thanks to all for your will and energy to help develop this class by attending to the races.
Strongest fleet in Europe has been Great Britain with 10 participants, followed by Germany with 8, Suisse with 2, Hungary with 2, Denmark, Luxemburg and the Netherlands each with 1 team.
