KOREA PWA

What a long event! 6 days and half on competition + 2 days of trainning and 4 days of travelling ion total from France to Korea for the second Pwa slalom event of the year.

We had sailed  5 nice races after several days of no wind. This year you can really feel the tension on the beach, level is really high and 20 riders can probably win a race this year! The ranking is really close after each race.

I love my combo 7,9 Vapor and 71 Manta. I am quite fast with it and confidant. I did 2 finals with that with 3 and 6 and be really surprised about this. Normaly at Jinha beach we had gusty wind (10 to 25 knots) from the right and flat water but this year we get also 20 knots from the left and some 1 meters wave. I like this conditions because it is more technical than flat water and you can jibe/accelerate because of the swell.

So I finished 11 at the end of the event! I am pretty happy about this even if I need to train and tune my equipement for light wind. Because technique is less important in wind below 15 knots than on choppy water and strong wind. A lot of guys are fliyng below 15 knots actually on the tour!

There is 3 weeks before the newt pwa stop in Costa brava.  I am actually 13 of the world ranking, this is quite good but doesn’t means so much because we have done only 2 events on a total of 6. I am now in transit in istanbul for 10 hours… Then I will have to try some news proto Mantas juste shaped by Fabien Vollewaider… and try to sail also a bit in wave for fun too!
