RS:X windsurfer women

First time ever I had the opportunity to photograph absolute world top RS:X windsurfer women training. This is Ingrid Puusta from Estonia and Tuuli Petäjä-Sirén from Finland, both Top20 ISAF ranked windsurfers, preparing for the RS:X class European Championships in Helsinki 2nd to 7th of July and for the Rio Olympics. The coach is Matthew Rickard and the third windsurfer (FIN-56) is Alexandra Blinnikka.

Lohja Race 2015

Lohjan Purjehtijat organized a ranking race weekend at lake Lohjanjärvi for three laser classes (Standard, Radial, 4,7), Melges 24, Snipe and RS-X raceboard. On Sunday the wind was quite strong (around 10 m/s) and every now and then also the sun was shining. This was also the first ever Sailpix photo session on a lake.
