AFF SLALOM 1ST EVENT

Mar 25

The first slalom event of the year (total 4 slalom for 2013) has been done in South of France, at “la Ciotat”. All the top french racers were there. We get some wind really gusty betwen 7 and 15 knots. The crew comite managed to valid 2 races. On the first one it was really on the wind limit. I used my 9,5 Vapor and the sail have much more low end than last year. In this light wind conditions the most important is to have a good start with fresh wind and also for sure a good equipement seetting to be sure to plan, and accelerate even if you need to pump after a jibe! I also feeled confidant even if 10 guys were able to wind this race! My Manta 85 is also a good choice because of more acceleration and speed than last year. I used a 48 ERD fins and also 46. On the second race it was more windy and I jumped on my 8,6 who is really nice balanced and have a nice wind range. So overal ranking I finished 4, pretty happy about that even if I missed the podium! Level on the water was high and ranking can have different for sure!

Thanks to my sponsor Tabou/Gaastra/Igwis.com/ERD fins/CG13 and my club (CN Marignanais)!

SOUTH SESSIONS

Mar 07

Winter is still there in France but we get some nice conditions so far with not too cold temperature. I am still pretty busy with French market and shops to take care but everything is going nicely. I also get now all my slalom gear and hope to be ready in time for the season. I have this year rig with more low end, new Gaastra booms full carbon and great ERD fins, so all good!

Here are some pictures from differents spots around Marseille.

Qualitie are not always perfect but conditions were fun!
