Four sandiliners in top 10 in Weymouth

World’s best sailors have again gathered in Weymouth where the last Olympic games were held, this time for the World Cup Regatta.

In Finn class Giles Scott won another gold at World Cup regattas, although he has finished last in the medal race. Second and third place went to New Zealand to Josh Junior and Andrew Murdoch. Two sandiline team members finished in top ten with Jonathan Lobert in 5th and current European champion Ivan Kljakovič Gašpič in 7th. Vasilij Žbogar, third from the last Europeans is recovering from a bike injury back home in Slovenia.

In Laser class a very good job did Jasper Stalheim finishing in 9th place. Gold medal went to German sailor Philipp Buhl.

In Laser Radial Mathilde de Kerangat again finished among top 10 sailors proving that her level of preparation is getting better and better. Dutch Marit Bouwmeester won the regatta this time.

Two medals for sandiline at Finn Europeans

10361391 1014474445237049 3389039879754279380 nSplit, Croatia has after 2010 again hosted Open European Championship for Finn class. This year’s championship was a very demanding regatta that was held in both strong and light winds was dominated by sandiline sailors, especially Croatian Ivan Kljakovič Gašpič - Bambi, who has won the Finn European Champion title for the second time.

“This is my fourth European title in Split, after the Optimist and Laser youth and the Finn in 2010. It's a pretty consistent record. This was also one of our qualifying events for the Olympics.”

Bronze medal went to another sandiliner Slovene Vasilij Žbogar for whom this is a 4th consecutive medal on Finn European championships.

Runner-up was a non european sailor Josh Junior from New Zealand.

Some time ago we have, as a part of a joke, proclaimed that the Finn class could be instead named after our company as, apart from all sailors having the same boat and sail size dimensions, our gear is used by majority of sailors, including the majority of top sailors. This has just been proven to be still true …

We really can’t be more happy to serve sailors achieve their dreams …
