This weekend, 10-11th of June, another A-Class regatta was held at Sopot, venue spot for the coming A-class Worlds 2017.
We had competitors from Czech Republic, New Zealand and Poland  racing with us. Each race was won by a different competitor, so the races were very quite competitive and we had lots of leader changes.

The first day of racing 3 races took place in very shifty and gusty wind 5-15 knots. There was
flat water so foiling boats sailed very fast. Next day the wind was about 5 knots and the races were short. That day the starts were the most important part of the races. Non foiling boats were a little bit faster.

Kuba Surowiec won the regatta, Jacek Noetzel was second and Tymek Bendyk third. The regatta was held under the patronage of Municipality of Sopot and in conjunction with Polish Sailing Association. Sailing Club UKS Navigo was the organizer of the regatta and Almar – king of salmon provided tasty fishes.

A-class World Championship 2017 will be held in the same club and the sailing area from 19 to
26 of August. See you in Sopot. www.aclassworlds2017.pl
