Sotavento speed Championship 2005

ISA speedsailing championships fuerte.
All pics by Noel Thorp.

July 2005

I used to love this event in Fuerteventura, but it hasn't run for the last 4 years. When it was announced it would make a come back on this years calender, I couldn't miss it. I flew out with the old partner in crime, John Smalley.
I've not owned any race kit for 4 years either, so scrounged a 59ltr board off whitey and a couple of sails off Ross.

Unfortunatley, despite the first 3 days of our trip being super windy, when the photographer arrived and the event started the wind disappeared.

All of my sailing was on the 6.6m, my biggest sail, and the 59 speed board. Luckily I was powered up enough to win the amateurs, despite most of the Pro's using 100ltr + boards and 7.5m sails.

Bjorn on an 8m..

Whitey, not exactly speed sailing conditions..

Image

They only managed to run 2 legs during the whole event.
During the first I broke my boom and just before the second my mast snapped! Despite this bad luck I managed to win the amateurs!

Image

Most of the week was spent doing underpowered freestyle..

But it had it's moments.

Ben was also hanging out in Fuerte.

Hope to have better luck with the wind next year.
