Sam had this to say: “It was an awesome week racing at the Andalusian Olympic regatta in Cadiz, Spain. The organisation ran 15 races over 4 days and we had a range of conditions from 8 up to 18 knots. The competition was well organised and we had a great time. It was fun to meet some new people in the foiling scene, having come from RSX. It was my first foil event and it totally blew my mind, the racing is crazy fun and I’m really looking forward to the coming season.“
