The 2019 Olimpic Week Foil Regata took place in Valencia at the weekend, conditions got off to a good start and the racing was very tight, the wind wavered and became none existant for the last day meaning Saturday's racing set the deciding victories. Congratulations to Benoît Gomez (FR) for taking top spot followed by by Alejandro Climent (ES) and Gunnar Biniasch (ES). The R1 V3 proved once again its 'Race Machine' status.
Next up for the racers is the Formula Kite Spain Series
Check out Gunnar's VLOG of the pre race training session in Valencia. Hydrofoil racing is a true test of endurance and takes a lot of commitment and training to gain the stamina to go the distance.
