Super RRD One Hour Classic: first day with record foil by the Dutchman Vonk
Twenty World Cup athletes present in Torbole for an edition that increasingly rejuvenates the most historic regatta organized by the Circolo Surf Torbole
Record edition of the RRD One Hour Classic, event organized by circolo Surf Torbole in collaboration with the AICW class (Italian Association Of Windsurfing Classes) and Italian Sailing Federation: is from 1989, that this event is based on a regatta of 1 now between two buoys to the crossbar is always enjoying great success. This year in particular there is the participation of athletes, representing the excellence of the fin and foil slalom specialty, with many World Cup riders in the race. In Addition 100 participants, with limited number of registrations.
All 13:00 the first regatta slalom fin version has started, While at 15:30 the second "marathon" of the hour, for slalom foil boards, that turned between the two buoys positioned at the two ends of Garda Trentino (to the east-Conca d'Oro and west-Ponale).
And it is immediately record in the foil discipline, with even two more edges made in 1 now, demonstrating the great evolution of both equipment, than athletes, more and more prepared with the "flying" boards”. And’ it was the Dutchman Vonk the real killer, winning in both disciplines: the first, fin slalom, he dominated it from the beginning, demonstrating great speed and precision in maneuvering: has realized 19 sides in 1 now and 1 minute; behind him the record man and athlete of the Circolo Surf Torbole Bruno Martini and third the other Italian Matteo Iachino.
But it is in the foil that Vonk shattered the previous record set last year by Bruno Martini: the Dutchman closed in 1h 01' well 21 sides on the 19 history. Vonk himself reached as maximum speed – the second ever – 33,24 knots in the foil race. Faster than him as "top speed" Vrieswijk, which in the last edge has reached the 33,59 nodes (more 62 Km/h).
Saturday will repeat the program respecting depending on the intensity of the wind the succession of the two disciplines: with stronger wind starts the race first with fin slalom boards, with lighter wind those foils.
