Xavier Ferlet: an English man in LA

Xavier Ferlet has conquered the first round of the 2011 CalCup Series, in Berkeley, San Francisco. The British windsurfer living in Los Angeles is the defending champion of the 2010 contest.

Twenty windsurfers competed in the Top fleet and 15 in the B Fleet. The first race was run in light winds ranging from 12 to 15 knots. Xavier was slightly underpowered on his 9.5, but he benefited from a mistake by ex-PWA racer Thomas Sehested to take first place.

Thomas won the second race with ease on his 10.7, however the third race saw the typical wind of this region pick up and that gave Xav the advantage on his smaller sail. Five races were run in total, with race four still having strong winds.

Xavier Ferlet represents the UK Windsurfing Association.
