We will profit from Paul’s experience, future Tornado Championships will be exceptional,” said Jürgen Jentsch, President of International Tornado Class Association looking forward to the next 2016 World Sailing Tornado World and Global Mixed Youth Championships in Lindau, Lake of Constance, Germany from the 10th to 17th of June.
