With no expectations at all, the F18 Class Event in Muiderzand was a splendid start for the three boats of the DG press SailinG team. Only 1,5 week after the sponsor and the teams decided to start this new adventure, the boats were ready to fly! On Saturday morning 18 April 2015, just before the start of the event, Olivier Bovyn and Don Findlay christened the team boats. Oscar Zeekant and Karel Begemann managed to win their first event in the new boat with a fifth place and three wins.
