2 slalom rounds were completed on slalom day 1. There was lots of action all day and most sail sizes used were around 7.5-8.6.
Bjoern (SUI 11) took the first bullet and Antoine (FRA 192) the 2’nd bullet. Great performance was also seen by Arnon Dagan (ISR 1) who is currently in 3’rd overall. Also Gonzalo (ARG 3) finished the day with a 2nd place in the last round. Ben Van Der Steen had another solid performance and is in 4th overall. Finian Maynard started pretty average in the first round, but then finally got a solid 5th place in 2nd round, that should boost his confidence for the upcoming days. There are 3 more days of competition so a lot can still happens in the results.
