2012 Ergo Hestia RS:One European Championship
21st to 24th July 2012
Sopot, Poland 

The first RS:One European Championships concluded last Tuesday in Sopot, Poland.

Courses were set inside the Sopot Bay in the Baltic sea, just meters from the beach, providing a unique spectator experience and allowing for some exciting close-quarter competition on the water.

Racing in two divisions, male and female, the event comprised of 10 qualification races and one fiercely contested final held in extremely challenging conditions with fluctuating winds of between 4 to 11 knots.

The RS:One class races are either a "Pulsar course" (reaching start following by a slalom and then an upwind to finish on a reach) or a long distance course. The final includes the top 3 of each division and is the only race that counts for the podium ranking.

Sopot, the "summer capital of Poland", with its beautiful, long, white sandy beach is also famously known as THE windsurfing destination in Poland.

120 brand new RS:One sets will be available on site for chartering making it easy for racers to arrive to the venue and enjoy intense and fun one-design races. Racing will feature three new formats, mixing short races with reaching start (Pulsar), classic format (Regatta) and long distance (Adrenaline).
