Only In Poland
Only in Poland would a bridge be built with architecture inspired by a DN! As seen on Tomasz Zakrzewski’s P55 Facebook page: ” Mikolajki‘s new bridge pylon was inspired by DN rig says City Major Piotr Jakubowski in his interview. Local sailors won DN Worlds three times: Tomasz Zakrzewski (2012, 2013) and Wladyslaw Stefanowicz (1990). Mikolajki Sailing Club’s wall of fame has also photos of other Wolds and Europeans medalists: Lukasz Zakrzewski and Robert Graczyk . Fleet rich in youth DN and Ice Opti sailors from Mikolajki supported by parents, sailing club and authorities will soon take over. If they are successful I see plenty of other DN architectural inspirations. Good luck.”
NOTE- Glad they chose to emulate a raked mast and not a bent plank….
