Quantum® Sails Earn First and Third at J/24 European World Championship

The 2010 J/24 European Championship was won by Serco owned by Bob Turner flying a full Quantum® inventory.
In third place was Xenon, another Quantum®-equipped boat. The event was held in Roompot, Holland with 11 races held over four days.
On the first day, Serco won the first race and ended in third with Xenon having the overall lead.
On day two, Serco pulled up into second overall after a 2,2 scoreline and by the end of day three had the series lead with Xenon hanging onto second.
The final day was a real nail biter and was sailed in very light air. Serco extended its lead over Xenon with a third place in the first race of the day.
Assuming just one more race, Serco couldn’t be beaten; however the race officer had other plans and squeezed in an extra race in virtually no wind. Neither Serco nor Xenon made a very good job of it and after drifting over the finish line on nothing but the tide, it was unclear as to which boat had beaten the other.
What neither skipper realized was that Hellenic Police, the 2009 European Champ, had put itself right into the frame with a perfect 1,1,1. In the end, Serco was crowned 2010 European Champion by a single point and Xenon taking the final podium place just a couple of points behind.
Serco owner Bob Turner said, “Having come second in this event twice before, I am thrilled for myself and the team to have finally won it. The boat was fast upwind and down; the help and service I have received from Quantum has been a big help.”
