F16 Europeans 2012: Tom Phipps-Nikki Boniface 1st

All images French F16 Assoc. Viper, Falcon, Bimare, Nacra & Cirrus  Q among the 40 F16 racing. The Formula 16 class is on a roll.







The hidden Talent.Tom Phipps was born in late 80s, like many of today young guns, he is the best youth catsailor of RYA program: Dragoon, Hobie 16 spi, with a gold medal at ISAF youth worlds in 2004 and silver in 2005 in Korea. His young mates of his generation are Juani Maegli, Bissaro, Cesari and Julien Villion among others.

Tom started sailing the Hobie Tiger in 2006 and he was top ten at Carnac and Tiger worlds in Cangas, also Tornado in 2007. After that he stopped. He took some time off and now is back.


I hope we can have Tom as a late entry for the 2012 Worlds at LA.
Showing full domination on a 40 super competitive fleet at the F16 Europeans is a strong statement on his talent.

He might be campaigning for Rio too.
