Mischa World Champion

Mischa Heemskerk from the Netherlands secured his title with two firsts in a stiff breeze.
After a decade of Astralian champs we have a new European World Champion.
Mischa succeeds Nils Bunkenburg from Germany.
Mischa showed already remarkable speed in Danmark and Garda and came well prepared to Florida, tuning his rig with PJ and Arno prior to the regatta.
His long experience with trapezing both as a crew  in the then Olympic Tornado and as helmsman in the F18 gave him just that little bit extra.
Mischa had conservative starts as he already anticipated that there would not be a drop, and.the demolished the fleet downwind.
Mischa sailed a 2012 DNA, an ARC/DNA mast, a slightly modified Ashby Stratis 2011 sail, and used Magic Marine gear; our clothing partner.
Mischa well done!
