First race of the year

Today in Reggio Calabria all of a sudden the wind showed up and surprised everyone to start the first race of the year!
I was on my RRD International X-fire 114 and theCHALLENGERSAILS Areo 8.7. The gear was feeling really good. With good speed I came to the first mark in second and managed to qualify to the next round. I had a bad start as I took a plastic bag just before the start, but I still managed with good speed to catch up unfortunately only to the 5th place.
Nevertheless I am happy with the season opening race that I finished on the 17th place!

Let’s see tomorrow if the wind shows up for some more racing.

Part of the game

A short light wind session with Challenger Aero + 8.7 and RRD International X-fire 114 today in Medano!

On the photo you see the bruise I got after a massive catapult while pushing it with the guys. Part of the game 🙂

A good training day

It was a nice training day with the boys! I was out with Challenger Aero+ 7.8 and RRD X-fire 114 powered up. I must say Andrea jibes good, but I was always close 🙂

The new machines are here

Finally the new machines for 2012 are here! After helping in developing the new RRD X-fires I was excited to try them out and they worked grate!
Can’t wait the season to start…
