2019 Optimist European Championship

22 – 29 June, Crozon-Morgat, France

Back from 2019 European Championship in Crozon!

This was one of the best regatta I was at this year.

It was an intense 4 days of racing, where we had different conditions then the ones we trained with. We never had a lot of wind, but that really didn’t matter because we still managed to do 9 races out of 10.

Overall, I finished 21, which I am happy with, but I know I could have done better.

Aside from racing, I meet new people, from 50 nations and made some friends. The weather was warm but not to hot. We did have some rain, but it didn’t stop me from doing my best on the water.

I am thankful to my coach, Damir Nakrst, who pushed me hard to do my best. I am also thankful to my team leader, Julie Baudet, who took care of us on the land. And finally, thank you to every one that helped me make my dreams come true, by supporting me financially and mentally.

Happy summer holidays!
