10 competitors from Russia, Norway, Lithuania, Great Britain and Denmark have joined 13 Poles for the 2018 ERGO Hestia Windsurf-Foil Open European Championships in Sopot.
This event is open to any board of width under 1005mm and sails up to 11 sqm. There is no restriction on the dimensions of the foil and any number of foils may be used during the event, although only one foil may be fitted to a board for any one race. There is also no restriction on the number of sails and rigs that can be used during the event. Exciting stuff! Prototypes are also welcome.
At the half way point, with 10 races completed, 26 year old Sebastian Kornum from Denmark has 8 wins under his belt, discards giving him a perfect score of 8. Competition behind him is a little more interesting, Przemyslaw Miarczynski (POL-126) is comfortably in second place but fellow Poles Bartlomiej Kwiek and Maciek Rutkowski are both on 25 points jostling for third place on the podium.
