European Spring @Circolo Vela Arco: Thilo Keller leads after 1 Race

Friday & Saturday saw high winds & chop conditions at Garda. The Arg crew present at the event reported he felt at home with Garda's chop, sailing a new A-Cat with latest flying tech. It was not easy though to adapt to full flight mode but he grabbed the pace of non stop downwind flying when wind decreased to 15-16knots on Saturday after some 20knots of previous sessions. He also reported Mischa Heemskerk foiling upwind.

In contrast Sunday saw little wind and only one race was completed with Thilo Keller in first place. Later the fleet was towed in to the Club.
