Powered by Pata Mast Oskari won the 2019 U23 world champion title in Anzio in a strong fleet of 28 young finn sailors representing 18 nations!
For Muhonen, it was his second Finn Silver Cup after winning previously in 2017. He still has one more year to go as an U23! No one has won the Cup three times in its 21-year history. He is only the fourth person to win the cup twice, following in the wake of Chris Brittle from Britain, Jorge Zarif, from Brazil and Ondrej Teply from Czech Republic.
“Of course I am pretty happy to win a second time. That was the goal for the week and I managed to achieve it. So I couldn’t be happier and it sets me on good path for the Tokyo Olympics and Genoa qualification.”
Other sailors sailed also very well with Pata Mast. Paolo Freddi from Italy finished 2nd among the U19 sailors.
Panagiotis Iordanou from Cyprus finished 10th in the U23 world championship.
