Nacras @Palma 2014, Chasing the Elephants: Day 4. Besson, Cammas, Bundock & Bissaro







Images Martinez Studio / Sofia.  Vid above by Bundock-Curtis. Hard capsize filmed. Top 3 spots for Messi, Maradona & Ronaldo... Followed by Dark Horse Bissaro racing with Silvia Sicouri. I told you this kid was good some years ago. Vittorio & Silvia have been working and training hard, and although they got high pressure several Italian team mates they are responding in the breeze and aiming to the top 3.
Bundock-Curtis slowly making their way up after an avaerage debut at Miami.
This fleet is super competitive, and from now on, earning a top ten spot will be the target for many. Iker & Tara also improving a lot from last year although today they had a dnf.

Another nice performance by Zajac-Frank keeping their average results on steady top 5 in every event. 
Another day of high wind racing for the Gold fleet. Silver fleets seems to be on vacation, awful schedule by the org in this aspect. Too much money from their pockets invested by the crews to race two days only.
