Laser Radial Youth European Championship 2017 – About Gdynia
Gdynia can rightfully be referred to as the sailing capital of Poland. Every year a number of events of national, European, World or Olympic scale are held here. This is due to the excellent conditions in terms of both, the wind and the infrastructure.
The base for all sailing events is the marina in Gdynia – the largest and most up-to-date in Poland. One of its strengths is the location in the city centre.
