Antoine Questel – French Championship
French Championship the first Event
from Antoine Questel (FRA99)
The first event of the French Championship took place the last week end from 8th to 10th april in South Of France (Le Jaï).
After few days of training with the best french sailors, let’s go for 3 days of competitions. The 1st day a good « mistral » (30-40 knots) permits us to do 2 races in hard conditions with choppy water and strong wind. At the end of the day I was 5th at the provisional ranking.
The 2nd day, wind is shifty and it’s really hard to do some races in this type of conditions. We arrive to run 1 race in 20 knots, I won this race !
For the last day, wind is different and we have a very flat water spot. I finished 2nd of this last race!
It’s a very positive event for me because my equipments were really fast! I am really satisfied about my performance even if I think I could be a little more agressive on the start line but thanks to my good speed I took the 2nd place of the first french championship event !
Stay tuned for the next event : Defi Wind in 3 weeks now ( 5th to 8th May). Training continues to be at the best for the 1st international event in Korea from 19th to 25th May!
