F18 Argentina: Change of Guard

Pablo Volker & Nico Aragones were part of the Youth Americas Cup Arg team. Pablo is 420 World Champ & Nico, and also Mariano Heuser, is double F18 Arg Champ both as crews. These two past weekends they race together for the first time in the local class on a lended C2. They finished 2nd overall behind veterans Smith-Heuser after 14 races with 4 final bullets. Making an impressive improvement since their first races together a week ago.

We formed the local class with some +35-40yrs old guys, and some young 29er crews started to fill the crews spots. Now they are racing together and the old guard will start struggling in the future to keep their pace.
Really happy for them as they represent the future of local multihull racing. Left: part of the Arg Youth team: Pablo, Juan Martin, Nico & Mateo with Santi Lange at Artemis base.
