Natalia Kosinska finishes in 5th at Windsurfing RS:X European Champs

Kiwi windsurfer Natalia Kosinska has missed out on a podium finish at the 2013 RS:X Womens’ European Championships just concluded at Brest, France ending the six day regatta in 5th place.

Leading at times and sailing with great consistency Kosinska will be bitterly disappointed not to convert her great results to a medal. However the fleet in France is top quality as Yachting New Zealand’s High Performance Director Jez Fanstone explains;

“This fleet is of the same quality as the World Championships. Natalia is winning races and sailing really consistently,” he continues, “her hard work is paying off.”

Natalia was placed 1st at one stage of the competition, and then 2nd (on countback) before placing 2,10,10 in the 3 medal races to slip to 5th overall.
