Almanarre continues showing off ; A World Class Slalom location
With a relaxing start but with thermal winds predicted for the afternoon it all quickly turned out into another day packed with back to back races for all divisions. Almanarre continues showing off as a world class slalom location, after today’s rough sailing conditions with winds up to 25knots.
The first victory in the Masters elimination was for the French Ludo Jossin who sails under the Spanish Flag. Quotes” its been difficult so far due to the 2 boards and 4 Sails registered, I am giving my best and sort of hope that the crazy winds will calm down a bit.
Elimination 2 was won by Adrea Rostai from Italy who played a different hand of cards by registering smaller gear for this event. The next 3 days will be interesting to see who will remain at the top of their game with the unpredictable forecasts predictions here in Almanarre.
In the Youths division, Basile Jacquin from New Caledonia fought back and proves his is here for business. Currently leading the challenging Youths division after 1 discard. Jimy Thieme remains on a podium position and 3rd place Damien Cervera not too far behind with equal points.
Ones to watch are Norwegian Martin Moller Hovda and Alessio Botteri from Peru.
Strong battles in the youth division and big disappointment of the day for the local Damien Arnoux due to a disqualification (Rule 18). Can he make a come back ? Lets find out in the next competition days.
