First attempt, first victory! It was a nice race, a little stressful when it came to choosing my sail size as I was struggling between just two sizes that I had available to me; the Severne R7 9.7 and the 8.6.

For the boards it was easy Starboard Isonic 134, in the end I took the big sail and it was working really well. Powered up the whole way round and fast.

After a beach start the race started. Luckly for me the kiters started ahead of us so I just had to follow them to the finish line". - Cyril Moussilmani
