Ivan Kljakovič Gašpić second in Palma

Trofeo Princessa Sofia hasn’t provided sailing fans with any surprises, this especially being true in the Finn class, where British Giles Scott continued with his outstanding performance to claim another win on a big regatta, although he wasn’t completely satisfied with his sailing:
“It was good to see how I could go in a different boat. Finns are very personal, so to be able to use someone else’s and still come away with the regatta win, you have to take some positives from that and it’s all good practice. I feel that things haven’t really gone my way this week so to come away with the victory is pretty good.”

Second place award went to Sandiliner Ivan Kljaković Gašpić. Third was Finnish Tapio Nirkko and fourth Sandiliner and olympic medallist Jonathan Lobert from France. There were many other successful sailors wearing our products, yet mentioning all of them would make this article too long.

For our fans we have one more information to share with you. Vasilij Žbogar, double olympic medallist from Laser class and currently vice champion in Finn class, has told us that his new boat that he has launched a few weeks ago is phenomenally fast. Maybe there is a change in Finn the top leaderboard position after all …

Bambi second in Miami
The first big race of the year has concluded on the last day of January in Miami, Florida where the majority of world’s best sailors gathered to test their preparedness before even more important events take place. 

In the Finn class our gear dominated again. The majority of best sailors wore our hiking pants proving them to be still the sailors’s best choice for this season. And not only our hikers proved to be in a good shape, also our team members (sandiliners) excelled at the event. Most notably, Croatian Ivan Kljaković Gašpič - Bambi finished second just after currently best sailor in the class Giles Scott. Another sandiliner Vasilij Žbogar finished in a great fifth place.

In the Laser Radial class sandiliner Mathilde de Kerangat from France did an excellent job and finished sixth among 79 sailors. She performed very well in the medal race as well, where she finished second!

American Charlie Buckingham sailed very good in his own waters as he concluded the race in 7th place in the laser class.

Stay tuned for other news from sandiline …
