AFF #1 LA CIOTAT — DAMIEN LE GUEN ON TOP
1st of 4 french championship's slalom events at La Ciotat, south of France.
6 riders of the world's top 25 came to race hard and try to win the first stop fof the french championship against other 33 french sailors. Only one race in very gusty conditions(15-25 kts) but Damien Le Guen has very good qualifications, always fighting with the very fast Pascal Toselli(16th PWA 2013). Always sailing with his new RS 6.5 and XO Gold 9.0m he took a good start in final, just behind Nicolas Warembourg(114L+7.8m). Finally a good 2nd place for Damien leaving at his shoulders world class riders as Antoine Questel and Pierre Mortefon. Note also the good 7th place of Valentin Brault with RS 5.5 and XO Gold 8.4
