18 Foot Skiff Europeans: Team Pica 18 Foot Skiff Europeans: Team Pica

Tristan Hutt sailing with Jamie and Stewart Mears in Torbole, Lake Garda successfully defended their 18 foot skiff European championship win in 2011 with an outright win at this year's Europeans even managing to stave off top teams from America and Australia.

On the Final day the fleet was called for start at 8.30 in the morning and an interesting race again in dying wind had to be cancelled after the first lap. So the fleet went ashore for a waiting period as the wind came in again around 12 AM. Finally in 16 knots of good breeze the fleet, mostly on big rigs had a great final race in perfect conditions.
Winner overall with 21 points after 13 races and 2 discards were Jamie and Stewart Mears with Tristan Hutt, sailing fast and clever, followed by Howie Hamlin with Matt Mc Kinlay and Scott Babbage on 28 Points, third overall came John Winning with Grant Rollerson and Andrew Hay with 30 points

Going forward there are still several European and domestic 18 footer events for them to concentrate on including this year's nationals in Plymouth where they will be aiming to defend last year's win. In addition the team are now making arrangements to travel out to Australia to compete in world renowned JJ Giltinan trophy which will as ever be held on Sydney Harbour, early 2013.
