Kurosh Kiani: born in Iran, living in Denmark

Kurosh Kiani has managed to claim victory at the 2013 Miami Slalom Open, despite the tricky conditions felt before, during and after the race.


Until late in the day, wind decided to rest. Sailors were concerned and thinking it would not be possible to run the 2013 Miami Slalom Open.

Alex Morales, event organizer, had faith the wind would come and it did, when a rain storm provided the gradient around 4pm, on the last day of racing.

The course was set by Darren Rogers, race director, and competitors were ready for three back-to-back races, with one discard allowed. Despite an anxious fleet, only one OCS occurred.

Not long after the finish of the third race, the wind quit and it started raining. Scoring was completed, and trophies and prizes were handed out.
