PERSICO 69F CUP ITAS ASSICURAZIONI GP 2.1
WAVES, WIND AND THE ART OF LOOK UP

Strong and gusty wind from north, a Lake Garda with chop waves, six boats and six teams ready to work with these conditions flying at over 30 knots: this is the first day of ITAS Assicurazioni Grand Prix 2.1 of Persico 69F CUP which in Malcesine, during the Foiling Week, has given hard and extremely fun races.

In first provisional place on the board, after four races – three of which with stronger wind and the last one in displacement mode – are the athletes Kingdom Team Netherlands. The young Dutch guys, who have the most hours of training with Persico 69F, have used the experience gained during more than 40 days of “flying” and they focused on the waves, staying as much as possible on the foils. All of this got them two third and two first places, two great electronic points and the point for the maximum speed during the race as well. In short, a great job.

Tomorrow is the second day of races.
