Szczecin Match Race is finished
The jubilee 50th regatta Polish Match Tour that is Szczecin Match Race 2012 took place last weekend on 10-12. August on Dąbie Lake and the Odra River along Wały Chrobrego. The final took place on Sunday close to the main stage of the biggest firework festival PYROMAGIC.
Match Race has taken place in Szczecin for 5 years. This year the best contestants took part. 8 out of 12 contestants are among the best 100 of ISAF rank and 4 of them are in the best 50! Thanks to such a good participation our regatta will be upgraded from grade3 to grade2 in the World Cup that doesn’t happen very often.
Sailing boats were from: Poland, Holland, Finland, Turkey and Germany. Rafał Sawicki was the best on Dąbie Lake. Jurjen Feitsma from Holland and Marek Stańczyk were just after him. Poor attitude of Yasara Tumsena from Turkey and 2009 winner Jeroen Den Boer from Holland was a big disappointment for the fans and supporters. Both sailors didn’t promote to play-off phase.
