Hyde’s Optimist sails have been performing well in Italy…
Sailing with Hyde sails, young Andreas Totis has just won the junior title at the Trofeo Torboli, the big Italian ‘end of season’ Optimist event, which saw over 250 sailors, 122 juniors, competing at Fraglia della Vela di Riva on Lake Garda. Andreas (LNI Mandello) finished the event with a race win to take the title by one point from Polish sailor Urbanski.
Andreas was also part of the team that finished third in the recent Team Race European Event in Berlino.
The results conclude a fantastic year for Andreas, who finished an inpressive 32nd in the 2012 Optimist World Championship, his first worlds, again using a Hyde sail.
