Piotr Kula in the top ten at the World Cup Series Miami!

Piotr Kula in the top ten at the World Cup Series Miami!

We are pleased to remind that the GERDA brand, supporting the Polish sport, has become a sponsor for Piotr Kula and will accompany him on his journey to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Piotr Kula is a Finn class sailor and the leader of the National Team.

There were 597 sailors from 60 countries competing in 10 classes in the regattas at the World Cup Series in Miami. Our Piotrek Kula, who qualified for the Finn class top ten, competed and finally came ninth in the Medal Race. Our congratulations on a good result! Our appetite for a medal at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo is growing bigger and bigger.
Our Finn class sailor Piotr Kula (GKŻ Gdansk) started the Medal Race in ninth place, with the mathematical odds on finishing even fifth in the final ranking. The eight-time Polish champion crossed the finish line seventh to finally defend his ninth place, which is a promising result at the beginning of the season anyway.
As Kula wrote even before the Medal Race, ‚We had extremely hard conditions… not because it was very windy, but just the opposite. The wind, mostly light or medium, but very unstable, was quite a burden. In such conditions tactics is exceptionally difficult. I was mitigating the risk all the week, which was why I was sailing consistently at the front of the starters.’
‚That’s how I fought my way through to the top ten in ninth place, and so I’m sailing in the Medal Race (just for top ten starters) today, where scores are doubled, so one can gain or lose quite a lot. The weather forecast says there may be no wind, but I’m counting on it blowing a little, because I feel like racing really seriously in this race!, Kula added.
