Our #yellowcover finally in action.
As announced the UV Covers proudly sponsored the Finn dinghy Gold Cup (Balatonföldvár, Hungary) with a "leader cover", the famous yellow one. This UV Cover can't be ordered, only won. After every round of famous races you can easily have an eye on the champion of the day.
Max Salminen, from Sweden, has secured his first Finn world title as the 2017 Opel Finn Gold Cup closes with an extremely close and intense medal race in light winds. Jonathan Lobert, from France took the silver while Nicholas Heiner, from The Netherlands, took bronze after leading the race from start to finish.
The title was down to five sailors, with Salminen, Wright and Lobert with the best chances, and Heiner and Zsombor Berecz, from Hungary with outside chances.
Salminen controlled his main opponents and defended against Lobert and Wright. But the title nearly slipped away from him on the final downwind as the pressure dropped out on the left and both boats passed him just before the finish.
"“It was a very tough week. We did seven very good races.." said by Lobert.
Our yellow cover was worn by 4 sailors during the event, announcing their performance.
