Takapuna, New Zealand- Dinghy Academy rocks in Takapuna, home of the 2015 Finn Gold Cup. Dinghy Academy Team Captain Vasilij Zbogar takes the bronze medal with a well deserved third place, his first podium at the Worlds. Alejandro Foglia, with his 17th place, secures the Olympic spot for Uruguay and himself after a tough week. A great achievement for our friend “Chino”, who will sail his fourth Olympic Regatta in Rio 2016.

Milan Vujasinovic (15th) also did well, beating Ivan Gaspic (20th) in this early stage of the croatian trials.
