We have just finished three days of sports competition held in the waters of the Vistula Lagoon.

 

Krynica Morska welcomed us with a great weather. The basin was divided into three areas for different sailing classes to compete, including foilboarding for the first time. It was a great effort – we have completed 26 races in total, which is the record so far in the history of foil class contests. Kudos for judges and organizers! Wind conditions were strongly changeable, often critical. Coach Tomek with his photo/assistants had their hands full, in order to help all the needy, not only enjoy observing the sports rivalry. And there was a lot of action in those conditions. There were nine contestants – both male and female – in foilboarding competition. Besides of Maks Żakowski Kiteboarding and Arkadiusz Kusalewicz there were almost complete levitating crew of Kite Surf Academy and Kuba Wątorowski as well.

On the first day (Friday) we made short work of all nine races, in order to finish them before the forecasted storm. We managed to do it just on time. On the second day the wind was stabilizing direction and strength quite long. The last day of competitions allowed us to play eight contests. Everything was fine and performed very efficiently.

The most important thing is that those three days of work let us gain a lot of experience and improve our skills. There’s still plenty ahead of us and even though we are very happy of results, we’re still working on. And these are the results:

* Magda Woyciechowska
1st position in women’s OPEN category
1st position in JUNIOR category;

* Paula Grzenkowska
2nd position in women’s OPEN category
2nd position in JUNIOR category;

* Julia Domasiewicz
3rd position in women’s OPEN category
3rd position in JUNIOR category.

* Kuba “Speedy” Jurkowski
3rd position in men’s OPEN category
1st position in JUNIOR category;

* Jasiu Koszowski
4th position in men’s OPEN category
2nd position in JUNIOR category;

* Michał Wojciechowski
6th position in men’s OPEN category; 
4th position in JUNIOR category.

After decorating, as usual, winners landed in harbour’s basin. There was no mercy – tradition means tradition! Many thanks to organizers – Polish Sailing Association; a friendly city of Krynica Morska; the Krynica Hotel and its owner – Mr. Darek for making a parking and infrastructure available for us; coach for preparing, care and rescue; and Sopot Sailing Club as well.
