Michal Polanowski

Michal Polanowski,
the new Youth Formula World Champion.

Michal did not "just" win the Worlds in Ostia, Italy. He won all the six races, and most of them a comfortable "ocean" ahead of his competitors. At the age of 18, he is simply in a class of his own. Michal is living in the small town of Ciechocinek, near Torun in Poland, and goes to secondary school. He is 186 cm tall and weigh in at 77 kg. The secret to Michal's success is determination and his ability to concentrate and deliver when it counts. He is a member of Mos Warszawa, the same club as World Champion Wojtek Brzozowski, and has been coached by Wojtek's brother Marek, as well as Karol Skurzak. Only after two weeks of training on a lake, Michal was heading for the sea. His learning curve is remarkable. Why wait.? Young Michal went straight for racing, and finished 16th. in the Polish Youth Championship in 1998,- at the age of 15. From that point onwards, Michal have improved at "warp speed". The year after he finished 5th. at the Polish Youth Championship, and last year he was close to a medal- finishing 5th. at the Funboard Worlds in Greece. And guess what,- he won the Polish Youth Championship as well. Michal has been practicing a lot this year,- mostly in the Canaries and at lake Garda, and it is paying off. How about placing 23rd. at Euro Cup in Miedzyzdroje, 9th. in Polish Open FW Championships in Jurata, 9th. in Open German Championship at Sylt, (winning one race) and 7th. at the Polish Open Funboard Championships in Leba. Finishing as the 3rd. Polish contender, he got a bronze medal. Congratulations to our new Youth World Champion. Go for it Michal. You are born in the right place at the right time. We are honored to have you on the Starboard team.

Thank you Krzysztof for all the information.
