Rock City Wins Nordic Championship In Tallinn
After three days of intense competition off Tallinn, Estonia, Tiit Vihul's EST761 Rock City took the victor's laurels at the 2009 Melges 24 Nordic Championship. With Tallinn also hosting the 2010 Melges 24 World Championship this was the perfect opportunity for the crews to start familiarising themselves with the venue and with 24 crews taking part competition was fierce. Second place went to Peter Saraskin in EST791 Zuxu with Tonu Toniste in EST790 Lenny third and Sweden's Jonah Svensson in SWE537 fourth.
The organisers of the event also took the opportunity to try out the new live race tracking system which they hope to use for the Worlds which proved very popular with an enthusiastic audience tracking the races remotely from their laptops and following the live blogging too.
