But last year was heavy wind and even Micah? landing a top spot, right. Antoine seems to hand it to anyone with enough wind. I remember Jesper Vesterstrom writing that he struggled severely with the wind last year. This year he wrote that it was very light and all about tactical racing, which I believe helped even the field (i.e. eliminate AA's advantage) and thus Gonzalo won due to his lightwind skills (and good tactics). That also leads me to believe that Gaastra may have won the regatta had Steve Allen been there as he has normally been able to beat Gonzalo and Jesper in such conditions, last year also on an older 160.
