Nacra 17s @Rio Test Event 2015: Waterhouse & Darmanin Champs

Images: Jesus Renedo / Sailing Energy / Australian Saling Team - The Australian kids are putting pressure on 3x World Champs Billy Besson & Marie Riou. Waterhouse & Darmanin are starting to compete with the French crew for the dominance of the Olympic Multi circuit previous the final stop in 2016.
At this Rio Test Event 2015 the crown was decided in the Medal Race between these two teams. Besson-Riou finished 2nd behind Zajac-Frank while the Australian Youths scored a 5th that secured them the title with a 5 pts gap.

The Australian team to my knowledge hasn´t defined yet who is going to represent them at Rio in the Nacra 17, but the peaking performance of Jason & Lisa, plus the former Olympic medalist Bundy & Nina wanting the spot , plus Landy (former Tornado Olympic Silver) as Coach, the Aussie Team is gathering momentum towards Rio in a brilliant and pretty solid way.

I hope to see Jason at Punta Ala Worlds in two weeks, he told me he will try to attend. Reviewing what he'd done past year at Bordeaux A-Cat Euros with few hours in the Class (2nd behind Glenn), he can easily now be again a threat to top contenders like Mischa,Brewin & Ashby.

Waterhouse is called to keep the Australian Multihull flag at the pinnacle of the sport, Olympic & Americas Cup included.
Read his interview we did some months ago and find out how also Lisa has been a key part of their success racing from H16s to the Olympic arena at catsailingnews.com/2014/10/jason-waterhouse-interview-youth.html
