Arg team Carranza-Blando training at Palma

First rides on the N17 this weekend for this recently formed crew. Before they participated in any event I labeled them "Argentina's best bet", and in their racing debut they won the first  F18 Worlds local qualifier held in Mar del Plata in tough conditions.

That only confirmed they are a team with good possibilities, as the objective, Rio 2016, is quite a hard path. 

They like how boat sails and they managed to participate in some practice races in 5-7knots with good speed. Yesterday the had 15knots and the first jumps downwind.
First challenge for the Europeans teams will be Palma Olympic week in days to come. Practice race video in calm weather below.
