The 2019 Star European Championship, held in conjunction with the Star Sailors League (SSL) Breeze Grand Slam, attracted 88 teams to compete on May 15 to 19 in Riva del Garda, Italy.
With 22 nations represented, the field was vying for not just the European title but also motivated by the 2,500 SSL Ranking points and the lion share of the $100,000 US prize pot. The ranking points determine the competitors that advance to the SSL Finals which last year offered a $200,000 US prize pot.
The format followed the SSL template with a qualifying series that advance the top ten to a knock-out series that determines the champion.
