There’s a lot of interest in OzRacers in Hungary.  The inexpensiveness of the boat and its sailing ability are very attractive.

Much of the world has limited funds that exclude the classes that are popular in wealthier countries.  So the OzRacer is an excellent alternative to introduce adults and kids to sailing.

Three of the OzRacers decided to meet up on Lake Valence.

Also in attendence were two professional sailors who wanted to try the boats (possibly because they look so strange).

The report is that they very much liked the little boats.
