Thank you for being part of our story this year as well, it was a crazy ride from a start! 🙂

2019. ended as a massive success for Sailboat RC Crew!

As the year draws to end, we would like to thank you for the trust you have given to Sailboat RC.

We will continue to innovate and always strive to provide a professional RC sailing experience with our projects and manufactured items that are helping to build up this mixture of technical culture and sport which we all love so much. It is our pleasure to provide you with our high-quality sailboats, unique sails, great fittings, accessories and all other goodies when the need arises. That is the only way to spread the RC sailing community while it evolves more and we will never stop on this mission, be it with volunteering for kids or with those little bit bigger “boys & their toys”! 😉

Considering 2019. is behind us now, let us try and check some of the most amazing achievements and milestones we made this year.

V. Open IOM Hungarian Championship 2019.
October 2019. – OVE club, Hungary

Canadian Coastal Cup 2019.
October 2019. – Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

aaaand of course…
ONE METRE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP – 2019.,
November 2019. – Porto Alegre, Brasil

TOP 10 PLACES as follows:
– 1st place: Zvonko Jelacic ?? from day one, sailing like a madman, pushing his green “K2” like it has jet propulsion, this unbelievable performance ended with the title of World Champion once again!!!?,

– 2nd place: Ante Kovačević ?? IOM expert behind his orange “K2” showed us that no one can get close to him in a fight for the silver medal and he managed even to push Zvonko into the sea this time avenging his dive at European Championship 2018., another achievement can be crossed on the list!! ?,

– 6th place: Paul Jones ?? the best from the Australian team, he was even close to entering TOP 3 in the final day, but nevertheless great result as he showed us all skill and persistence with great overall results,

– 7th place: Mirko Ukas ?? master and truly brilliant skipper who showed that his blue “Kantun S” is going to be a serious threat to all who dare to enter the very top of the World’s in Brazil.

What is more, this is the first title of the IOM Championship ever which was defended again by the same person & sailboat which makes us very proud since one does not simply unlock achievement which will go under label “historical”. 2017. Sailboat RC was World Champion, 2018. European Champion & Vice-Champion as well, 2019. World Champion & Vice-Champion…we tried to let this sentence “sink” to us, but it is still not going through our head what we have done. Of course, we could lament that our own sailing club in our hometown Split is trying to be forcefully shut down, but that is not our style and it never will be. 🙂
So, thank you all for support, honestly, RC sailing community was our big, big power and we love you all back!
