Marcelo Morrone: always cool

Tempo Wind Clube at Sao Paulo, Brazil, promoted and organized the first stop of the 2010 Brazilian FE Circuit, supported by Azul Linhas Aereas, last weekend.

On Saturday the wind didn't come and the fleet had an opportunity to talk about the class and make plans for the next Worlds, in October. Some gusts started to blow over Guarapiranga lake at 6:40 p.m. and the guys went out for a night sailing. The Saturday night finished with a live rock and roll band and pizza.

Light winds again on Sunday. The sailors went to the race course at 2 p.m. After 3 attempts, including one full race abandoned at the end of the second lap, a single race were completed to validate the event under the Brazilian Circuit rules.

As usual in FE, the race was very disputed from the start to the end with the top contenders changing positions all the time. The conditions were very tactical with the wind at the very lower limit and shifting. Local Guarapiranga sailors did very well on that condition.

Andre Yamin finished in 1st and Fernando Bociarelli in 3rd. Marcello Morrone, another "fresh water" sailor who lives in Brasí­lia, over 1000 km far from the Brazilian coast, finished in 2nd.

The Brazilian Windsurf FE circuit is supported by Azul Linhas Aereas. The top 5 ranked sailors are travelling free of charge to the events and that makes the races very interesting not only for the 1st place.

Azul means the color blue and Romulo Finamore and Leonardo Venturini are the two other sailors currently in the Blue Zone of the 2010 Brazilian FE Ranking and will travel for free to Vitoria, site of the next stop of the circuit, to be raced at the end of May.

August 3, 2016, was a day that surfers should never forget. For the first time in its long history, surfing was confirmed in the Olympic Games.
