RC44 Cup Austria Practice Day. Beautiful sunshine for the 13 competing teams but little in the way of wind. Under the stunning backdrop of Lake Traunsee, the teams did manage to complete the ‘Grand Prix of Gmunden’ practice race, with No Way Back crossing the line first.

There was a new boy calling tactics for Peiter Heerema on No Way Back, Tom Slingsby (AUS) is a man on form. He is the current Laser World Champion, ISAF World Sailor of the Year and is gunning for gold at next year’s Olympics in London. Tom grew up sailing on lakes, so thinks the challenge of Lake Traunsee could suit him.

'It was my first race today so I was just getting used to the boats. It was a good fun race, it was a short course with quite a few laps and the positioning was up and down one moment you were first the next last. With positions changing all of the time, we were lucky we came good right at the end. The Laser is a very different boat to this but I love the RC44, it’s such a great boat. It's perfect for this fleet and very technical which is new for me, I'm still learning about that stuff, but we've got a great team and they know how to get the boat around the course, I just have to put us in the right position.' Tom Slingsby, Laser World Champion.
