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/ fins/CG13 and my club (CN Marignanais)!
