The Cabrinha team is in La Ventana Mexico preparing for the La Ventana Classic….
Last week in Las Barilles, Mexico during The Lord of the Wind event Brian Lake was on a roll and ended up on the podium in all 3 events. Chris Butzen battled and hung in the top pack in racing, along with advancing to the finals in the big air! Jessica Sickinger finished third in the slalom keeping the girls on the podium. The new boys Daniel Koenig and Brandon Bowe put on a show in freestyle as the winds died out.
Sitting here in La Ventana, with the full Cabrinha crew - Rob Douglas AKA “Bobby the Bullet” fastest sailor in the world, Richey Gardner and Dan Kirkhoff, new Cabrinha team members! The two freestyle boys Daniel and Brandon. Brian Lake the 2012 Bridge to Bridge champion, along with Damien “lil’ guy” “Old Guy” Leroy, aka world champion slalom 2011!
We are all drinking Java at Baja Joes every morning and getting the race gear ready. Team Cabrinha aka Team ADHD is on their meds!
Today started with incredible Slalom racing in winds exceeding 30 plus knots. As competitors tangled and blew up it was a sight to see. Rob Douglas - well, let's just say he went though some kites and bars and got wrapped up like a Christmas present. Richey was the stand out today as he is 50 and he made it in to the finals every race. “Old Guys Rule” I managed to hang in there as Johnny Heineken took the win and I managed a second. Things are looking good for team “ADHD”
Thanks to Race Director Alex Aguera for putting on the slalom event.
All hands are on deck and all the money is on the table for the main event crossing event tomorrow…..
