DN World Champs- Won In A Loaner Boat!
You may have heard that due to a shipping snafu several Polish sailors had to borrow gear to compete at the DN Gold Cup this year. In a class where sailors spend hours customizing, refining, and practicing with very specific gear this is a big bummer…
The good news is several sailors from the midwest were able to cobble together enough spare gear to assemble a few complete boats that these guys could race. Not the perfect situation but better than nothing!
Of course Poland’s Michał Burczyński sailed one of these borrowed boats and was able get it going well enough to take the top prize, in convincing fashion no less.
Just goes to show that the most important piece of gear on any boat is the nut that holds the tiller!
