Dieter Van der Eyken about the European Tour and his motivation: “What I first thought when I saw that Tonky will enter the competition, was that it will be a battle for the second place (…) I definitely wanted to compete for the European title, so when I heard that Tonky was entering I saw my dream already fading away, but now I could win the event, I am super stoked!” He also pointed out that it has been a long time since he was sailing in such strong conditions. Dieter used his 3.6 m the whole day and still ended up being overpowered.
