Matteo Iachino has signed with Starboard and Point-7. The Italian windsurfer makes a strategic move for 2016, after finishing third in the 2015 PWA Slalom World Tour with Fanatic and North Sails.

He is probably the best Transalpine slalom windsurfer in the world right now. Iachino only needed 67 points to clinch the maiden world title last season but, this time, he has two new trumps: a new board and a new sail.

Andrea Cucchi, founder of Point-7, is happy and proud to have the Italian back in the team. Matteo will be riding the AC-1 black sail in the upcoming competitions.

After receiving her masters in computer science and applied mathematics, Sara Hauser took on a few jobs like anyone else. The young pianist - she studied classical piano at the New Caledonia Conservatory of Music for 12 years - wanted to increase her skills before dedicating her life to what she really loved: windsurfing.
