Chilly Start for South American Championships
Posted On:  26/03/2014 10:50:03

An unusually chilly start under grey skies for the South American Championships taking place on the beautiful waters of Lake Potrerillos, Mendoza.   Equipment and measurement checks completed, competitors gathered for the briefing wearing jeans and warm hoodies!

2 Brazilians have joined a strong Argentinian contingent making a total entry of 31.  Martin Berardo trounced the competition with two bullets on day one and Andres Anderson ARG-119 twice crossed the finish line in second place.  Raceboard Masters Fernando Consorte and Marcos Ruesch tussled for third places with one apiece but Marcos has third overall by taking a fourth in race one whereas Fernando dipped for a fifth in race two. 

We have a good mix of age groups ranging from youth to veteran.  Sadly just the one lady but she will no doubt hold her own in this male-dominated fleet.

Hopefully the wind gods will bring a little warmth along with the wind on day two of the competition.  Stay tuned for more!
