The Czech Yachting Association has lately been involved in organizing two championships, namely the Czech Sailing Junior National Championship and the Junior European Championship. We are pleased to be a partner of these major events and would like to thank the organizers for their work.
The Czech Sailing Junior National Championship took place from 21-28 August at the Dyje Břeclav Yacht Club in Nové Mlýny. The first part of the race pitted the ILCA 4 and RS Feva boat classes against each other, and the second part was dedicated to the Optimist boat class. In the event of bad weather, which by the way occurred at the beginning of the race, there was a side program of discussions, workshops, and knotting contests for juniors.
We are happy to be able to actively take part in such events and help out at least a little with the sports education of young sailors.
On 2-5 September the Junior European Championship in the 49er and 49erFX Olympic boat classes will take place at Lipno Dam under the auspices of the Černá Yacht Club in Pošumaví. This is one of the highlights of this year’s worldwide yachting calendar. Some 116 competitors from 20 countries are expected. Come on out and enjoy the experience.
