Laser europeans

This year's Laser Standard and Laser Radial european champion was held in Dublin, Ireland. New European champion became Tonči Stipanovič from Croatia. In Radial fleet local Annalise Murphy won by a huge gap of 22 points.

Sandiliner Mathilde de Kerangat finished on the 11th place. "I am happy with my result, although I would, of course, prefer to be in top 10. Yet I finished 11th european and regarding the conditions it is a good result because it was windy all the week, very shifty and the shifts were very hard to anticipate. And this is not the conditions I like the most. Last year I was 8th in the europeans in Hourtin (France) but the wind was lighter and the fleet level was lower, so I think I am more satisfied with my 11th place this year."

The view to the fleet was really nice, as the number of sandiline equipped laser class sailors is growing rapidly.

Light in tricky conditions on Finn Gold Cup

1150312 10151633930407634 15628450 nTallinn, Estonia hosted world's best finn sailors on one of the most prestigious sailing events being held every year. Weather conditions were extremely tricky, which led to very inconstant results of all sailors, including top 3. Furthermore, the wind hasn't shown 2 days in a row during the event.


Yet it is always true that on such big and long events, the best in given circumstances wins. The winner of the Finn Gold Cup unexpectedly became Brazilian Jorge Zarif, which became the Junior champion as well. Second was British Edward Wright and third Dutch Pieter Jan Postma.


For our sandiliners the event didn't go as the wished, leaving Jonathan Lobert on 5 th place, european champion Vasilij Žbogar on 13th, Deniss Karpak on 14th and Ivan Kljakovič Gašpič - Bambi on 15th place.


Now let us invite you to take a look at the picture gallery from the championship, as the view to the "sandiline" fleet was really awesome. :) Oh, here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Finn-Class/110408332633?id=110408332633&sk=photos_stream
