Formia Wing Foil Tour 2020
Client NameJhon Doe
🇬🇧 I returned from the last competition of the Italian Wing FOIL Tour Championship which was held in Formia (Lt).
We left on Friday with the intention of entering the water and testing the spot already in the afternoon, mindful of the mistake made in Puzziteddu, but unfortunately the heavy traffic did not allow me to.
The expected forecasts did not occur on Saturday, only a few puffs of wind, such as not even allowing the positioning of the race course. This lack of wind made me worry a lot because in the championship only one point separated me from Francesco Cappuzzo.
Sunday promised wind so as to call the first skipper meeting at 9.
The wait lasted until 1pm, when small gusts began to ripple the sea.
Suddenly a great ferment began to animate the beach, in a few minutes we had to be in the water to fully enjoy the wind.
I had to try the material to decide what to use in the race, but the first choice was not the right one, the 6.5 sail and the mast 101 did not convince me, low speed and too soft upwind.
A few minutes from the start I was on the beach to replace the equipment with a thousand adrenaline, worried about not reaching the start in time. Thanks to my caddy, I overturn the strategy using my usual regatta must and a 5.5 mt sail
I arrived on the start line just three minutes from the green flag.
I didn’t start in a good position so as to round the first quarter mark; from there I start targeting the first ones that I reach easily, thanks to an excellent upwind angle thanks to my new Wings.
In the second lap I cover my opponents in all their moves, crossing the finish line first.
This result loads me so as to run the next two tests always at the maximum, placing me first!
Unfortunately at the fourth race I started to feel the sitting and the tiredness; despite a good start I was unable to catch up with Gollito and Francesco and I finished in third position.
