Nacra 17: Gimson-Burnet training towards Tokyo 2020



Nacra 17 MKII looking good once more, would like for the crews to get all the juice possible out of the MKII platform, to see how efficient (or not)  upwind foiling while racing can become with more hours on the new Olympic cat. Z foils also look more reliable that Js, a local  Arg onboard video circulating here is showing scary handling in the breeze for 3pt Js.

"Thanks for sharing our Nacra 20 foiling gybe video from Bermuda earlier this year. We are now well in to our Nacra 17 MKII foiling campaign for 2020. We picked up our boat the day before the europeans and scored a 5th overall, then managed a 6th overall at the Worlds in la Grand Motte. Quite happy the prefrmance achieved as we were one of the last teams to receive our boat before the big summer events.
Attached latest video on the N17 trainings.

Many thanks John Gimson & Anna Burnet".
