First team race

It was a last-minute decision to start with Afonya on the Saturday race on 2nd September 2023.

The weather conditions were not ideal for sailing due to the very light breeze, but it was perfect for trying the boat for the first time in race conditions.

Here is a short video summary about AFONYA’s first race 🙂

First sailings – summer 2023

The western basin of Lake Balaton in Hungary seems like ideal water for testing my Didi26 sailboat’s behavior. Last summer the water level was too shallow for her 1.7 m draft. This summer – however – the conditions are perfect. The quickly changing wind direction and gusts test the crew too 🙂
