Pablo: "Between the 2nd and the 5th of April, the Spanish Slalom Championship got started in Almería, with an overall of four events programmed in Almería, Múrcia, Cataluña and Tarifa.
Unfortunately, there was only wind on the first day (Thursday). So, we could manage two full proceedings and a half of the third.
With a high level fleet, the three first places were disputed by Pablo Ania ( Fanatic/ North Sails/ION), Alejandro Alcázar(Fanatic, North Sails/ ION) and Fernando Martínez del Cerro.
Pablo Ania, reached the first place in the two finals after having catched the first buoy in the third place because of a non good starting.Second place was contended , in a nice hand to hand fight between Alejandro and Fernando.
It should be highlighted the strong presence of the North/Fanatic team, that made a clean sweep of the first places. As a part of the team, Emilio Galindo, Fran Pérez and Óscar Ania, carried out a very good championship too.
Eventually, the third place was for Junior sailor Marc Paré, who fulfilled a really good championship and got favoured with the oficial decision of punctuate the part taken of the third proceeding - in which Alejandro Alcázaar didn't managed to reach the starting line.
Final classifications were the following:
Pablo Ania (North/Fanatic)
Fernando Martínez del Cerro
