The wind is rising and so is the competition, with just a handful of points deviding the first three teams
This is our first time racing on the Persico 69F Cup, we are very excited to be here, it’s always a good challenge! We came here for the racing and we got racing so we are very happy. We are preparing the Youth Foiling Gold Cup at the end of this month and I think the preparation for us is going well, can’t wait for tomorrow!

This is our second event in a row. It has been great fun so far but I have to say that sailing for twelve consecutive days is pretty tough. Actually, we decided to use this week as training for the future event as well. Today we experienced very different wind conditions: at the beginning we had 10 kts and in the end we finished with 25/ 30 kts. We know we have a lot to learn but we feel we are improving day by day and this feels rewarding.
