Bronze medal from Opti Europeans

Opti Europeans in Pwlheli – podium for Victoria Schultheis sailing Devoti Optimist

A strong final series for Malta’s Victoria Schultheis resulted in her clinching bronze. This is the first time Malta has ever won an Optimist Worlds or Europeans medal.

Schultheis said: “I was aiming for a medal so am very happy. The last two days were more my weather because I’m not so heavy. I just tried sailing my best today because I had nothing to lose. I had to be careful on the start line because I already had a Black Flag Disqualification but otherwise I took some risks.”
