Congratulations to the Spanish sailor 
Aina Colom who sailed a great regatta to come 2nd overall in the girls division of the 2013 Optimist European Championship, using her North sail.

The regatta took place in Balatonföldvár on Lake Balaton in Hungary from 29 June to 7 July. The venue has been host to a number of other big regattas in the past and is known for being a good sailing venue with nice weather conditions.

During the 6 days of racing they did have a number of light wind days which saw some racing cancelled, however the varying wind conditions meant for some good tactical racing.

Aina Colom went into the final day on equal points with Arianna Passamonti from Italy, they were in 3rd & 4th positions, so she had a great days racing to bring her up to second in the final overall standings.
