The Raiffeisen Optimist Cup has come to an end in the most popular youth class. 89 Opti sailors from six countries competed in this 3-day regatta. A total of seven races were completed in beautiful conditions.
SZILASI Fábián (Kereked VK) won the overall title, overnight leader David LUCAN (YCBb) had to settle for second due to a black flag start in the last race. The bronze medal went to host club sailor TENKE Áron (SVE), followed by WOLF Szabolcs (BS-Fűzfő VC), Yannis Saje (SC TWV Achensee) and Erőss Loránd (SVE).
According to our coaches, the Hungarian Team showed a promising performance which is a good sign two months before the European Championship to be held right here in Balatonföldvár.
