24th of May 2017, Poland, 2017 ERGO Hestia FW Europeans

ERGO Hestia Championships - press conference

The regatta will take place in Sopot 11th to 15th of June this year and the organisers have already launched the countdown with a press conference yesterday.

Apart from representatives of the city of Sopot and event sponsor ERGO Hestia sport journalists had the opportunity to talk to Paweł Tarnowski, a RS:X multi-medalist, ready to test his skills in FWC this year.

Versatility is good for everybody and that is why I decided to take part in this championship – Paweł said. The last time I sailed FWC was three years ago, but I look forward to this start as it is an opportunity to sail at my home club, which I don’t get to do too often. He added.


Following Sopot the windsurfers will go to Liepaja, Latvia and Gallipoli, Italy for the next parts of the series. Each event with has a prize fund of 2500 Euro, from which at least 6000 will be allocated to a series prize fund.

No event can be discarded from the overall so it is definitely worth competing in all three venues.
