In July over than 80 yachts will take a part of the ORC European Championships in Gdansk. One of them is “Scamp” and last two years team of that yacht is doing better and better on the regattas. Zeglarski.info had oportunity to talk with one of the crew members, Grzegorz Gozdzik, about yacht, crew and preparations for the most important event of the season.
– We train, develop our skills and participate in regatta to compete with other teams and win. That’s the essence of racing. For me and our crew, ORC Europeans will be the challenge on which we look with humbleness, but surely we will do everything to achieve the highest place in these competitions.
Each crew member have good sailing expirience, some of them started in e.g. Sydney-Hobart, Rolex Giraglia and St. Marteen Heineken, but in that squad, as Scamp Team, it will be first regatta of that rank. Before ORC Europeand team has many plans i.a. training with other crews in Kiel, start in Gotland Runt and also some polish regattas.
