Nacra 17s @Medemblik Regatta 2018: Echavarri-Pacheco 1st

Highlights of this regatta are seeing Besson back on the water, also happy to know Sarah Newberry continues her Olympic dream , plus the Polish A-Cat young guns  (Surowiec and Bendik) entering the Nacra 17 arena for the first time.

Being an A-Class Foiling Master wont grant you a top spot on the Nacra 17 flying version, but it is only their initial attempts along coordinating with their respective crews Katarzyna Goralska  and Anna Świtajska. Both teams did some F18 racing while waiting for the N17s, and I think they should keep racing it whenever possible to acquire double handed course racing hours.

Top ten below, complete results here.
