Dear Soling Friends!
A very Happy New Year.
I hope 2013 brings you fair winds and good results, in sailing, health, work and every area you wish!
2012 has been an exciting year in many ways. We have seen highs and lows.
A big congratulations to all Champions. Conditions have been hard but every time the best sailor came out on top.
And let´s remember that we can´t have champions without applauding all the volunteers who organize the events for us.
A big Thank You goes out to them! May you be a benchmark for the events in 2013!
There have also been lows. Precious lives lost that are irreplaceable.
I wish all the families and friends strength for the future.
Your loved ones will be missed by more than you might realize.
2013 will be almost a traditional one. For our European Championship we visit the beautiful Castoglione della Pescaia at Easter. The Worlds will be held at Lake Balaton. So be prepared for a weather challenge, added with perfect social events!
I´m sure all events will be sailed by happy, fair racing soling enthusiasts and will be organised by volunteers who share our passion for racing.
On behalf of the entire ISA Committee, including our anchor in a stormy sea Matias, I wish you the best for 2013!
