December 14, 2015

kontidesAnother challenge is coming up for Pavlos Kontides. After his participation at the «Star Sailors League Finals» at the Bahamas, where he raced in the star class (two person dinghy) and not the laser class, the Cypriot sailor will return to his class, by participating in the «III Brazil Sailing Cup» in Guanabara Bay, Rio between 15th and 20th of December 2015.

It is an annual local event for Brazil, but in this year it has particular importance because of the location and the time point, ahead of the Rio Olympics next summer.

Therefore, in addition to the Brazilian sailors, several sailors who will participate in the Olympiad will also be present. This fact makes the competition into a very intense one, and another great opportunity for Kontides to measure his forces, see his degree of readiness and to become more familiar with the environment that he will face next summer.

Pavlos Kontides has been in Rio since last Tuesday, straight from the Bahamas, where he continued his preparation in view of his participation in the Brazilian event and also for the Olympics.

The Cypriot sailor will start his effort on Tuesday, December 15th, at 17.00.
