25-08-2019 | With minimal wind there was an Open Dutch Championship Foil this weekend but on Friday 6 races could be done. It was the first time this Dutch Championship was held.
Katja: "Very happy to win the title although it was not the battle I hoped for. But hey, that's the way it goes in sports. It feels more like a reward for all these years of competing and trying to push the sport. Grateful to be part of it."
I really want to encourage all the women out there, starting to foil or thinking about foiling, to just give it a try and race! It's so much fun! And don't bother so much about your level, you'll learn on the way. Stop thinking that you need a certain level. Just go for it, and enjoy!!
