Wojciech Brzozowski wins the ERGO Hestia European Championships
Posted On:  15/06/2017 20:57:45

POL 10 is one step closer to claiming the European series title after winning in Sopot.  Today there was not enough wind to race and although the race committee called the sailors out on the water the race was abandoned due to unsatisfactory conditions. 
 
On Wednesday, after 11 races, it was Wojciech who was first followed by the defending champion Michal Polanowski and Pawel Tarnowski and this was the top three of the regatta. The first and only lady in the fleet – Maja Dziarnowska was 10th overall.
 
After concealing the win Wojciech admitted that this wasn't the easiest of regattas.  
 
"I'm happy but exhausted," he said. "The conditions were very demanding.  Last week I was in Sylt, which is known for tough conditions.  Sopot this year was tougher. Storm wind speeds a difficult wave and well prepared competition.  That is why this event was so challenging. Today the wind died just after we started to race, that is why yesterday's races were decisive. In races 10 and 11 I made all the right choices and managed to win them both.   


"I think that tactics and a bit of luck is most important in racing. Speed and equipment is important, but it is more important to know how to be in the right place at the right time.  You need to know where to start. Pawel Tarnowski, who sails the Olympic RS:X, is a good example. He is a very good competitor and showed off his tactical skills, like a true sailor. Maja Dziarnowska also presented herself well. She is a top sailor and was able to sail in conditions that many men were not able to compete in."


Stage 2 in the 2017 FW European Championship Series will be the Liepaja Cup in Latvia from 24-27 August, with stage 3 in Gallipoli 18-21 October.  More on the FW Class website
