Anton Modin and Susanne Jansson added a third UIM Class 3A European Championship title to their CV’s after completing the hat-trick in Nynäshamn, Sweden.
The pair first won the Championship at Tvedestrand, Norway in 2017 and they retained the title in Smögen, Sweden last year.
They used the same Phantom 19g hull in all 3 championships, although after the second and final race their trusty steed was a looking a tad battle worn!
Thomas Billman and Jonatan Rindar took the UIM Silver Medal with Johan Torsell and Maiken Asplund rounding off the podium.
