Jürgen Jentsch, our President of the International Tornado Association, represented the Tornados at the World Sailing AGM in Abu Dhabi. Jürgen met the two-time Olympic champion Roman Hagara. Furthermore, the new technical director of the Austrian Sailing Association and the new technical staff of World Sailing were there to talk about the licences of the new mast production. The Tornado Class would like to thank its President for the great work he has done for the Tornado Class for the last 10 years at his own expense and with great commitment. Despite its advanced age, the Tornado is an incredibly technically mature and, compared to other catamarans, fast and robust sailing boat. This aspect and Jürgen’s work, among others, make the class successful and still very attractive for sailors.
