Nations Cup Selection, Turkey

Turkish Sailing Federation announced that the selection event for Nations Cup will be organized in Izmir, Turkey on 17-19 February. Being the first Grade 3 match race event to be organized in Turkey, this event will bring 8 teams head to head. The winner will represent Turkey at the Nations Cup Regional Finals to be organized in Dubai on 2-7 April. Although match racing does not have a long history in Turkey, this event is bound to provide a lot of excitement: it is expected that there will at least be 3 skippers with Olympic Games experience. I will be skippering as well with my former team mates from Turkish Sailing Team and current Dragon National Champions: Oguz Ayan, Arda Baykal and Kaya Dinar (check out their campaign site here). Hence, stay tuned for a race report from Izmir in the coming weeks...
