Olympic Class: 1st Nacra 17 Worlds, June 21-27, 2013

This image from Jesus Renedo / Sailingstock.com defines what this new Olympic Class is all about. Hardcore and all beautiful girls racing as helm or crews 1 on 1 against the best male Catracers on the planet riding a light & powerful performance 'beachcat'.

The first thing I went studying after leaving high school was Advertising/Communications. And I've been seeing 'Mad Men' lately , I always liked that Kennedy era on their pure style, but the series also digs some interesting real Ad campaign cases. From an Ad Men point of view it is clear you can´t have a better shot to promote this Class.  I can see this Hanna Klinga image on a full two pages feature at the former LIFE magazine.

On a second note .... ! The first Nacra 17 Worlds are coming next week, and Billy Besson, new F18 World Champ, is one of the candidates. Also they had a pre regatta this past week, results sent by Thij Visser below. 

One of the Argentine crews is selling their brand new Nacra 17 after the Worlds,  being used only at Kieler Woche. You can  contact Lucas Gonzalez Smith at the Worlds or send me a mail and I'll contact you directly.
