21st of August – Boat Handling training by Melges 24 team Sika/Kesbeke
For years the Dutch Melges 24 team Sika/Kesbeke is not only dominating the Corinthian fleet in the Melges 24, but are in the top of the pro-fleet too. In 2013 they’ve won the European Championship in the Corinthian fleet on home-waters in Medemblik. In the current European Series they are familiar with the podium too, not only in the Corinthian fleet but also in the pro-fleet.
On 21st of August they will share their knowledge on boat handling and sailing a sports boat. Training will be in the J/70. There are many similarities to the J/70 after all and they’re sailing with a 4-person crew like the teams in the Eredivisie Zeilen and Deutsche Segel-Bundesliga.
