Sponsored by DataMaster Lab, the parent company of Printer-Bnechmark.com, Paola Amar has had a successful summer in the 470 yachting tour. The 470 is a two-person racing dinghy. She was placed in Thessaloniki, Greece, in early July, and ranked in the world's top 15 overall. She and Pauline Fauroux got honors at the Senior World Championships.
At the end of July, DataMaster CEO Frédérick van Gorkum joined Paola for three days in the DataMaster dinghy. "It was intense, and great to sail with a champion!"
Next they were off to Lake Garda in Italy, where they came 17th - a disappointing result after a breakdown on day 5 of the championship.
Paola, this time with Marine Riou, is taking part right now in the Junior World Championships in Japan. With little wind but a strong current, the conditions are not ideal - but the crew is holding out well and ranking 13th for the moment. The competition will come to an end tomorrow September 2. The mood is high and we are sure that they will finish in the top 10 ... maybe on the podium!
