After a very successful windsurfing season, the German racer Vincent Langer (27) changes his equipment sponsors. Together with Gunnar Asmussen and Sebastian Kördel, he forms the German racing elite, who scores big at international events, too. In contrast to his colleagues Asmussen and Kördel, Langer has not been seen very often at international Slalom events, but maybe his new sponsors RRD and Point-7 give him a new push and we maybe will see him more often at international Slalom competitions. After finishing his study he can now focus more on training and he has made the first step for a successful season 2014. Vincent will spend his whole winter on Tenerife to prepare as best as possible for the upcoming season.
Point-7 honcho Andrea Cucchi is happy to have Vincent back on the team: “Vincent came to my house in Xmas dressed up like father Xmas for my 2 small girls last year. Vincent is not only a great sportman, but also a good friend who we love to spend time with. He was in our team from 2009 to 2011, and even when he was not with us for 2 years, he was anyway part of our training program specially in the winter. I sailed a lot with him in Tenerife in the last years, and he joined our Black Team program on the water. He knows how our team works, and I believe this is also a reason, apart from the fast sails, why he is happy to join us again. I believe Vincent has high potential to achieve great results also at the PWA world tour. He has been at the very top in Germany in the last years, and now it’s time for him to go for the next step. We need to boost up his beleif in his dream and he will get what he wants. We have now a new distribution network in Germany through Liquid sports, driven by former World Cup racer Phillip Horn, and I believe that this combination will give great support to our Point-7 friends in the country. With Phillip and Vincent we have planned many different activities which will be displayed through out the year to give service, support, information and fun. We are all very excited to have Vincent back because we all know that he was always black in the inside.”
