Matas Blancas Spot Guide – Speed Secrets

Our experience at this location is that there is sometimes small rolling swell that travels into the wind, never more than a few cm high but enough that it can provide you with a push to accelerate quicker if you sit on it right, we suggested this idea to Björn.

Yes often you can get a bit more acceleration of these small bits of rolling swell, it’s quite a rare thing because the angle works quite well with it. However, as you pick up speed you begin to be too fast for it and so whilst it works to accelerate you it isn’t long before you out run it. Really it’s not needed; we are quick enough as speed sailors already.
