F18 Arg Nats 2014, Day 2: Gonzalez Smith-Heuser lead after 8


Pics taken by Sofi Tedín. Perfect day with a flat North East 8-12knots. Cruz Gonzalez Smith and Mariano Heuser showed their level &  experience today  to grab the lead from a closed packed top 4 teams, scoring 1,5,1,2 to lead by 3 pts over Volker-Daneri, with Krevisky-Segura and Blando-Quagliotti within 4/5 pts from the leaders. All 4 teams have chances yet to crown themselves 2014 Arg Nat Champs. Tomorrow we might have light winds again so it is anyone's game. 4 Races scheduled. With 10 races a second discard will be on.

Not much to say on personal experience today, as we suffered a Direct Hit at the gate buoy, we were going upwind already when two boats came together barking each other for space, one hit the buoy and then hit our hull at the shroud anchor position, full vertical snap plus an horizontal one. The hull didn´t explode cause the C2 destroyer bow 'aimed' perfectly to the subdeck/frame "crossroads" and the Infusion 09 is one of the best series as remarked yesterday.

Pity for Leandro with so many little days on the F18 and his recently acquired boat. I don´t get why people instead of complaining and shouting for priority (on another boat, we were ahead spi down already upwind) while going full speed, they just need to avoid dangerous situations luffing hard and missing the gate/buoy traffic before smashing any boat.
