Steve Brewin wins Europeans 2013

As reported Brewin secured the title yesterday winning the 8th race, with a second discard in place with a ninth there were no chance for Lanbenberger or Calavia to reach him.

Andrew Landenberger won the final race today and defended his 2nd position. Manuel Calavia could finally discard his dns but a 10th in the final race put him in a really good 3rd overall considering he raced 6 "Finals" after scoring a bfd and a dns in the first 3 races, obtaining the European Crown as Brewin & Landenberger are from Australia.
