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.
