European Championship Athens 10 - 16 July

So finally on the way back home! We are very happy that this championship is over for us. It was probably one of the worst performances we delivered in the past years. 
The disqualification in the first race (we were to early on the starting line for hafl a secound!), killed already our regatta. We had to be more passive on the starting line, but this didn't go well and the light wind was not to our favour.

Anyway, now it' s time to remember the good points and to focus on the next weeks. Next destination will be the Rio Testevent from the 26.7- 10.8.

End 1st training session in Santander

We just finished the first training session 2014 in Santander. 10 days of training with of lot of different wind conditions.
We worked with other boats on speed and did some races on the different sailing areas we will use during the World Championship next september.
We gain more experience about this very particular sailing place. And we had some epic strong wind moments: breaking the mast on down-wind: The video.

The days were long and exhausting with sailing, physical work and few surf sessions.

We were sailing the last 20 days, first in Riva del Garda and this training camp with only 2 days off. We will have now 10 days at home  and then we will go back to Santander for an other training camp with a coach regatta in the middle.

See you

Yannick and Romuald
