Hiberna Slalom: First Trials of the Season in Arkhangelsk!
The first slalom races of the season happened on December 13, 2011 in Arkhangelsk, Russia. The participants cleaned up a spot and engaged. For the most of us this is the new kind of sport since there is no real windsurfing at this latitude and it was hard to expect much. However, HIBERNA surprised everyone by how well it could be controlled and how sharp it allowed to cut jibes.
The winner was Khargovski Andrei as the fastest adopter of the technique.
These are exciting times! Watch for HIBERNA at Wissa 2012 - dedicated races are planned and ice cleaning machinery is getting tuned up!
