Sopot is one Poland’s most popular windsurfing regatta spots. This year for the 9th time windsurfers from around Europe came to compete during Ergo Hestia President’s Cup.[more] The event consisted of two parts: Baltic Sea Cup – with such classes as Techno293, RS:X and Raceboard and Allegro Cup – Open FW Polish Championships.
Over 100 competitors from Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine, Finland, Poland and even Brazil took part in the racing. During the three days all classes were able to complete 5 races.
Hosts SKZ Hestia Sopot took the top spots in the RS: X class won by Paul Nowacki and Paul Frydrychowicz took the honours in the Raceboard Class with fellow club member Leszek Gasiorowski in second place. “I am very happy”, says Paul, “except for the one “wtopa” in the fourth race which was my discard anyway. Leszek and I train together, Leszek pushed me hard”. Paul should be happy – he won all the other four races!
