Scheidt, Bruno win Star Sailors League regatta
NASSAU, Bahamas -- Two-time Olympic gold medalist Robert Scheidt and crewman Bruno Prada of Brazil have won the inaugural Star Sailors League.
Scheidt and Prada finished fourth in the quarterfinals Saturday, just good enough to advance to the seminal. They then won the semifinal and final races to finish ahead of Mateuez Kusznierewicz and Dominik Zycki of Poland and Mark Mendelblatt and Brian Fatih of the United States. Italians Diego Negri and Sergio Lambertenghi were fourth.
A purse of $200,000 was divided among the 18 world-class skippers.
