The Italien team wins the the 31st edition of the International Optimst Team Cup at Lake Wannsee, Berlin.
While the first race in the finals against the Polish team was very close, the Azzurri-squad quite superiorly won the second race of the best of three series to secure the cup.
The cup defender USA 1 from the Lauderdale Yacht Club won the small final against the second Polish team, also in two straight races, to take third place.
Congratulation to the medal winners and our great respect for the performance of all teams resulting in very exiting races.
A detailed report will follow.
