BA Week 2012: Esteban Blando & Nico Aragonés 1st



Photos Matias Capizzano & Claudio Cambria. Esteban Blando & Nico Aragones are two focused catsailors. Nico is part of the Youth Americas Cup challenge from Argentina with several crews that participated in the F18 & 29er classes,  these kids are the future of our local sailing.

8 Bullets out of 15 races with their Wildcat, 17 points ahead top crew of Smith-Heuser on an MKII. 3rd from Uruguay and with Wildcat too, Schewe-Radovitsky..

If Olympics weren´t fixed mandatory these two would be racing together for Gold at Rio.
Gladly our best Laser girl, Olympic sailor Cecilia Carranza will be replacing Nico for the N17.
Interesting also how Laser top sailor Julio Alsogaray is racing with us now too, change of class? who knows, maybe Ainslie can set a trend is he campaigns with the N17...

Next main events are Arg Nats in Novemeber and 2nd South American in December in Uruguay.
