I'm looking for your support to go to the Optimist European Championship, that will be held in Pwllelhi, Wales from 17 to 24 of July 2015.

In the last 7th of June 2015 i was one of the eight sailors selected by the Portuguese Sailing Federation (FPV), to represent Portugal in the Optimist European Championships. You can see the final ranking in the FPV page in Critério Nacional de Seleção Optimist 2015.

I'm looking, with your support, to raise € 2,500.00 to finance my dream - Participate in the Optimist European Championship, which will run from 17 on 24 July 2015 in Pwllheli, Wales.

 

About the author

My name is Filipe Egipto, i'm 13 years old and i'm a young boy like many others. I love my sport (sailing). I spend all my weekends training and competing. Still, I can successfully combine my academic performance to the dedication to this sport (I'm finishing the 8th grade with good qualification).

I started sailing with eight years old in Alhandra Sporting Club. I won many optimist regattas at local level and some at the regional level (Duarte Bello Trophy). At 11 years old, i started a new adventure. I started sailing in Sport Algés and Dafundo (SAD). This change has brought new challenges. In my first year in SAD i was optimist regional vice-champion B. I made my first national, finishing in 66th place overall. In my second year at the club i was regional champion by teams. An injury (broken finger) prevented me from performing the national championship, postponing my dream. My third year at the club brought with him more work and the realization of my dream. I was ranked 10th in the National Championships held in Horta, Azores, Portugal, calling me to the selection test. After three days of competition, i finished this race in 7th place. This classification has opened doors to my participation in the Optimist European Championship, where i will represent Portugal with great pride.
