Sailing youth championships in Balaton, Hungary

946606 344952748969535 1835211284 nThe biggest european lake Balaton has hosted many world and european championships this year, among them were European Optimist Championship, 4.7 World and European Championship, Laser Radial Girls U21 and Laser Standard U21 World and European Championship. This hungarian lake is known for very shifty and unstable conditions with light winds. It hasn't been much different in the past weeks when these championships for youngsters took place. This time it fitness didn't pay off a lot, yet the patience and concentration prevailed. To achieve this, sailors really have to feel comfortable in their sailing gear, especially when temperatures are around 30ºC. That's the reason that so many sailors wore sandiline products. One of them was our athlete Eliot Merceron, Sandiliner and french young sailor, that has finished 6th (5th european) in the World Laser Standard U21 world championship.

Congratulations to all competitors and hopefully we will see you again in the future.
