Austrian Team become the 2017 Junior World Champions
Unser Club, der UYC Wolfgangsee, erwarb vor ca. 2 Jahren 2 RS Feva, um uns jüngsten Seglern die Gelegenheit zu bieten auf einer anderen Bootsklasse, neben dem Optimisten, unsere seglerischen Fähigkeiten zu schulen.
Our club, the UYC Wolfgangsee, earned 2 RS Feva about 2 years ago to give our youngest sailors the opportunity to train our sailing skills on a different boat class, next to the optimist.
Unfortunately there are hardly any boats in this class in Austria and also no regattas, so we have dared this adventure.
Our goal was to gain first experiences.
With the possibility to get a title like the junior world champion at our first RS Feva Regatta, we did not expect.
Sometimes the wind was too strong for us, yet we are proud of our great performance.
We especially thank our coach Sven Reiger, who gave us this opportunity and always motivated and helped us.
We liked this event very much. Particularly impressing we found the orderly and quiet expiration at the end.
Thanks to all the organizers, the race team and all the helpers! "
