"Stand by me": Go Speedsailing!!!
April 2005: as mentioned several times, invited by close friend Comerla (Alexander Comerlati) … and pushed by my Princess Monika, I take part of Lake Garda and Lake Como, the race speed F2 speed challenge …
I bring home the F2 missile (that was the only specialist table in production and that I still have to remember) and a feeling ... that from that day has never left me: the thrill of speed!!!
Facing a run is something Interior lot … How to deal with a big wave … the relationship, compare with others, disappears in the presence of greatness of nature … and comparison with its ghosts and its limits.
It is not the mere victory … but its target height that makes a great company!!!
For this essence of purity ... I'm loving ... But now let's move on to some technical aspect, We analyze the position and trajectory.
1) Location is everything, We must try to be a single block, to make sure that when the gust comes there seize by surprise ...
If there is moving, If you keep the position ... then all the energy becomes slipping ...
The front leg is stretched, How to do pin up Board; behind bent; the front arm well stretched out and your back as straight as possible … and especially firmly. The sail must be tilted back and slightly upwind.
Here's an example ... when I was “Sano” Karpathos Photo 2009 during the tough Greek Open (50KTs of wind and chop from battle)
A curiosity: the force of the wind is the same (30-35kts) but the equipment is very different. Luderitz: speed 41 and 5.0 – Trevignano: Slalom 68 (112lt) and 7.1.
In the recent photos of Trevignano, Despite the chop and over-power conditions, It is my position that the tree is significantly better than in the channel ( Although table, in the picture, is a little’ taking off … but checked …).
Luderitz photo does not transmit a feeling of solidity of the rider as opposed to Trevignano: the famous monoblock, father of all acceleration
In the picture of Luderitz shines through unnecessary strain for the real condition. (maybe after several months you couldn't expect much … Although a little’ more you) There's complete mastery of the situation …
Luderitz channel everything happens very quickly ... then the head (also enhanced the awareness of a good physical state), in those conditions, makes the difference.
Another important tip is to go fast: free your mind ... and a good physical fitness (in relation to the condition that you go to address)!!!
Alberto and I … in La Franqui … at least the mind was free
2) The trajectory: the trajectory “in banana” (slingshotting), in recent years has allowed us to achieve previously unthinkable speed. We said before that if we remain steadfast in our correct position, all the energy is transmuted into slipping … and then in speed ...
Here's, suddenly the slack by throwing make this much easier ... for several reasons:
a) the effect of elastic fled generates a strong acceleration;
b) less effort: for faster acceleration, Download sailing wind much better and is easier to control;
c) the stabilization Board that jumped to slack remains as straight (the slack holds down the table) on the water with much less risk of little hygiene takeoffs (unless you present too “Gayathri” ... as seen in photo with 112) ;-)
Stand by me ... the speed is a wonderful thing
And’ the 2 December 2013 … (the previous day had given us the grecale an epic day in St. Augustine with wind gusts up to 50 knots ... but I thought enthusiasm get the gopro )
That 2 December the wind fluctuated between the 15 and the 20 nodes with some slightly higher gust … great gym to get the best equipment, trying to maximize the difference between wind speed and that of the table.
To make a run with 41 and the 5.8 I waited a good half hour
Then the last advice to go fast ... Patience
That the soul is free … to let us fly to distant lands !!!
