Formula 16 Worlds @Travemunde: Opti -> F16?

Image Seb Godefroid. Optis are the best school sailing can have, but after that what path a kid can follow? For 12yrs Old (Not 14 as I was remarked by Jeroen) an F16 seems to be a good next step, with a little help of some champs in your training and as crew you can be leading at that age an International Class World Championship.

Not over yet, but comfortable lead for Henri Demesmaeker & Jeroen Van Leeuwen.
Tight battle for 3rd. Event ends tomorrow.   Formula 16 is being used form youths to be future champs in USA and Belguim, programs supported by Ahpc & Falcon Marine and more surely will follow their path.
