European Spring & Italian Nats 2015 @Circolo Vela Arco: Thilo Keller Champ

Video by Circolo Vela Arco | Thilo Keller won the 2015 Spring European at Circolo Vela Arco. The report I have is Thilo was not on foiling mode on his Arrow. 

Mischa Heemskerk (Dna) who won 3 races yesterday flying good downind,  had some issues today with his boat and couldn't´t start racing.  Jacek Noetzel finished 2nd (Exploder) and Sergio Vela 3rd (Scheurer G7)

For the Italian Nats 2015, Edit: Stefano cavallari grabs the local crown finishing 6th overall and first Italian. The Italian Association will host next Worlds in September at Punta Ala, 140 entries confirmed already, official website at http://www.aclassworlds2015.it/

In the last Race, rookie A-cat sailor, Sergio Mehl , from Argentina scored a great 2nd place, in fact he was leading Thilo by some margin but missed layline  and Thilo passed him close the finish line. Conditions reported were 18-20knts , with Mehl leading last race in full foiling mode with his 2015 Dna. Great for the Arg sailor, with only some races done at Bordeaux last year as we are not racing locally yet. 

Top ten below.
