Great days in Miami! The forecast for the weekend wasnt looking good, but in Miami you never know what is going to happen.

Saturday morning the wind was very light but around 2pm the wind started to pick up and at 3pm we did the first race of the day. The wind was perfect for 11's and 12's,average of 16 knots and gusts up to 22 knots.

The course was 2 laps upwind/downwind. I had good speed with my new Starboard 162 and TR5 XT 12. I won all the 4 races of the day.Loic from France also with good board speed with starboard had good results finishing the day on 2nd place and Fernando in 3rd.

On Sunday we did 4 more races. The wind was lighter than saturaday,around 8 knots in the first race and 12 knots in the other ones.I was using my 12 TR5 XT again. This sails feels great !! Good speed upwind and it is extremely fast on downwind.I was using the recommended DH for all the races ( Saturday I had +0.5cm). I won all the races of the event !! :)

Miami is a incredible place for FW and slalom.

Flat water and this time of the year there is always some wind.

The event site was the U.S sailing center.
