Moreover, it is the second year in a row that our ILCA 7 has seen the top three sailors. I feel honoured and elated, remembering my sailing days when I had the privilege of winning the European Championships in the Finn class with a boat I built myself. This achievement is a testament to the dedication of our employees, managers and friends, which drives us to strive for excellence every day. I extend my sincere thanks to the fantastic sailors who choose Devoti Sailing. Please do not hesitate to contact us, we are here to help you in any way we can”.
