Tradewinds 2013: Win for Falcon F18 & F16

Having a local committed builder is key for cat sailing health and development. And if it happens to be a good builder providing performance cats able to help winning sailor, it is even better.

I knew Matt McDonald at Long Beach, but before that we exchanged several mails on his F18 project, and later I asked him for a charter on the new Falcon F18. 

It was a great experience and challenge making a brand new boat debuting on a Worlds event, and as reported the boat felt super fast, with Matt seeing live some excellent moments in our training and some good individual positions while racing, that showed the boat potential.

So now the Falcon F18 grabs it first championship with Jason D'Agostino & Dalton Tebo, together with a top 3 on the F16 class, and  I'm confident the first of many to come. Congrats to Matt and his team at Falcon Marine for a well done job. Image Rick White.
