Domination of sandiline hikers at the finn europeans

In La Rochelle has concluded this year’s european championship for the most elite olympic sailing class - Finn. In really tough conditions with very strong sea current and changeable winds sailors using sandiline gear dominated. In the medal race 8 out of 10 sailors wore our hikers proving that they are by far the best at the moment.


Our team members have also been very successful with Vasilij Žbogar (SLO) winning silver medal, which is his 5th medal on european championships. French Jonathan Lobert was 4th and Croatian Ivan Kljakovič Gašpič was 5th.


Take a look at the great picture gallery.


Next big event will be world championship in September in Spain, where sailors will try to get their first tickets for the next Olympic games.


Stay tuned, we will keep you uptaded.
