Valencia, August 12th, 2013
Dinghy Academy activity resumed this August after the European Championship in Warnemunde, Germany. We are now preparing for the Finn Gold Cup in Tallinn, Estonia, which is scheduled for August 23rd. Dinghy Academy team leader, Slovenian Vasilij Zbogar, came back home from Warnemunde with the European title in his hands, his first major Finn Championship after two Olympic medals in the Laser Class. Zbogar wasn’t the only Academy member to do well in the European Championship; finishing g in the top 25 of the fleet were Aliçan Kaynar (TUR), Frederico Melo (POR) and Zsombor Bercecz (HUN), a fantastic result for all of the guys.
Currently the international fleet of 9 sailors are enjoying the stunning sailing conditions in Valencia, with 14 to 18 Knots SE seabreeze and nice waves. They continue with the 6 days per week training schedule, directed by head coach Luca Devoti.
Please see our lastest video below, with free pumping practice in medium range conditions. We hope you enjoy:
