In the Boys fleet, the 2007 Optimist European Champion was awarded to Etienne Le Pen (FRA) followed by Leonardo Dubbini (ITA) in silver and Juraj Divjakinja (CRO) in bronze.
In the Girls fleet, the 2007 Optimist European Champion was awarded to Patricia Coro (ESP) followed by Julia Gross (SWE) in silver, and Daniela Zimmermann (PER) in bronze.
We look forward to coming to the Nautical Club Thessaloniki for the 2023 Optimist European Championship and to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Optimist becoming an international class.
