Sailing youth championships in Balaton, Hungary

946606 344952748969535 1835211284 nThe biggest european lake Balaton has hosted many world and european championships this year, among them were European Optimist Championship, 4.7 World and European Championship, Laser Radial Girls U21 and Laser Standard U21 World and European Championship. This hungarian lake is known for very shifty and unstable conditions with light winds. It hasn't been much different in the past weeks when these championships for youngsters took place. This time it fitness didn't pay off a lot, yet the patience and concentration prevailed. To achieve this, sailors really have to feel comfortable in their sailing gear, especially when temperatures are around 30ºC. That's the reason that so many sailors wore sandiline products. One of them was our athlete Eliot Merceron, Sandiliner and french young sailor, that has finished 6th (5th european) in the World Laser Standard U21 world championship.

Congratulations to all competitors and hopefully we will see you again in the future.

Low temperatures at Delta Lloyd Regatta

Second Eurosaf Europa Cup regatta concluded on Saturday in Medemblik, Netherlands. It is said that wind there blows dogs off chains and that there is usually much colder than other parts of Europe at that time. This year it was just like that, even colder. One of best Aussie sailors commented that he hasn’t sailed in such a cold weather in his life. The temperatures were just a bit above freezing point.


So this time the clothes, in the first row, served to keep sailors warm. Sandiliner Vianney Guilbaud posted to our Facebook wall this message: “We don't have good faces but our clothes are beautiful and warm, which is very important during Delta Lloyd regatta 2013“.


In laser radial class Mathilde de Kerangat again claimed 4th place. It looks like it is reserved for her ... “The delta lloyd freezing regatta is over, I ended up 4th. It is a good result even if it is a little annoying to be 4th again. But I can't complain if I look back how bad I was sailing in these harsh conditions one year ago and I know I can still improve a lot.”


Sandiliners Vianney and his crew Vincent Guillarm finished on 9th place overall.
