HELENSBURGH sailor Lorenzo Chiavarini was out to continue a rich vein of form last week as he attempted to master the waters at the Laser and Laser Radial European Championships in Barcelona.

Eleven British sailors contested the six day regatta across the men’s and women’s Olympic single-handed disciplines at the venue, which is celebrating the 25th anniversary of hosting the 1992 Olympic sailing competition.

Former Lomond School pupil Chiavarini secured a top 10 finish as part of a strong British performance at the World Championship in Croatia earlier this month.

Nick Thompson led out a seven-strong British Sailing Team Laser contingent in Catalonia. The Rio Olympian and two-time world champion finished in sixth place in Croatia, with Elliot Hanson in 11th, Michael Beckett in 20th and Chiavarini in 10th.
