TARNACKI WINS HIS EIGHTH MICRO WORLD TITLE

North Sails Prove to be the Fastest Sails on the Course

A fleet of 25 boats came together from seven countries at this year’s Micro Worlds event in Świnoujście, Poland. The Championship was a true test to the sailors with the full range of conditions across the week. The first half of the regatta was windy and wavy however the second half saw very light winds. Although there were 12 races planned, due to light wind at the end of the regatta the event was cut short on the final day.

The first and second placed boats were untouchable throughout the regatta and between Poitr Tarnacki’s Volvo Roca and Rafal Sarwocki’s Euro Shipping, they won all of the nine races, mostly with a big lead over the rest of the fleet. In the end, Piotr Tarnacki, North Sails Jockey, came away as World Champion for the eighth time! North Sails proved to be the fastest sailmaker in the fleet with boats finishing 1,2 and 4 in the overall standings and also gaining bronze medal and in the Cruiser and Racer divisions!

Congratulations to all North customers competing in the championship this year!
