Gonzalo Costa Hoevel verlässt Loft Sails und riggt in Zukunft schwarze Segel auf. Point-7 ist sein neuer Partner und der Argentinier wird einer der „Key Tester“ für die AC Slalom Segellinie sein und natürlich an allen PWA Tourstops teilnehmen. Im Interview spricht er über diese neue Herausforderung und erinnert sich an seinen alten Freund Alberto Menegatti. Die beiden wären nun auf den selben Sponsoren unterwegs gewesen.
Gonzalo Costa Hoevel leaves Loft Sails and joins the italian Black Sails of Point-7. He’ll be one of the key testers for the AC-lines and will take part at all the PWA Slalom events.
Point 7: „We were ready to introduce Gonzalo Costa Hoevel joining our Point-7 Black Team news by end of February, but for obvious reasons, we kept the news waiting till now. We are sure Alberto would have been happy to have had his friend Gonzalo on his side during the PWA events and vice versa. Gonzalo has known Alberto from the very first events Alberto was taking part to. They were good friends and had both great respect of each other. Gonzalo’s smile and positive attitude will bring new fresh motivation to the Black Team“
Andrea Cucci: „I’ve been racing against Gonzalo from probably 2002. It was the times of the Formula Eurocups, and now he is on our Black Team. It’s always a good feeling to sponsor a friend who you have battled many starts with, and I remember him present when we celebrated the Vice Champion PWA title of Alberto in 2013; it was only few of us left on the island of Sylt it was a family party in a local bar, and we were already talking about him joining our team, but we actually made it happen only after one more season. I’m excited to see Gonzalo dressed in Black on the water, and I will give him all my support to make sure he will be supplied to show his tactical skills at max speed!“
