It was a spectacular weekend at the Allianz Regatta – Open Dutch Sailing Championship that took place off Muiden, The Netherlands. A strong field of J/70s and a cold north wind made it a wet & wild event. After three days of races, the student team of TU DELFT CHALLENGE took home the gold medal with big smiles on their faces; they were beyond exuberant when they crossed the finish line in the final race, knowing they’d just beaten some of the best Dutch sailors. Standing with them on the podium taking the silver medal was Maarten Jamin’s JELLO, and earning the bronze medal was John den Engelsman’s TEAM HOORN MARITIME.
