The international wind and kitesurfing regatta 2017 NeilPryde Baltic Cup Latvia and European Formula Windsurfing Cup was held at the Karosta (former Soviet navy base bay) at the Baltic Sea coast of Liepaja, Latvia from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th of August. Three day event brought together best windsurfers and kitesurfers from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, including 2017 Formula Windsurfing Masters World Champion Janis Preiss (Latvia).

The well known slogan for the locals: "Liepaja is the city, where the wind is born!" proved 100%, again. Sunny, warm and windy conditions from 15-30 knots (!) dominated the three day regatta.

"The weather was great, but at the same time challenging and demanding, as always in Liepaja! All classes - Formula Windsurfing, Formula Kite, RS: X, Raceboard and Techno 293 - had a chance to hold as many races as possible," said Mr. Juris Vasioleks, the Latvian event organiser.

The regatta was kicked off on Friday by windsurfer classes Formula Windsurfing and Kite Formula, Techno 293, Raceboard and RSX, who enjoyed the sunny weather and strong wind conditions. Estonians dominated in Kite class, but Latvians dominated in all Techno 293 classes (3,5, U13, U15 and U17), as well as in Raceboard, RSX and Formula class. Four races for Formula and Kite class and three for Bic, Raceboard and RSX had been sailed.

On Saturday, the weather was rather tough. The wind was up to 30 knots. It was too strong for windsurfer classes. Only, 2 races were managed for Kite class.
