Last year World champions are still in the control. 3 races in light wind seabreeze conditions here in Mondello today. Giorgia and Fabien always in front. But this is only the beginning with 12 more races to go ...
130 young windsurfing talents from 27 nations, Youth olympic qualification, One of the most beautiful beaches in Italy, Sun, Wind, Clear water, Warm weather.
These are the main ingredients for this Easter windsurfing event.
The format of racing today changed to slalom, and with the strong wind here it was a perfect choice.
Representing the home nation, Raul Claux commented on the format just after finishing for the day. "It was very good. I enjoyed slalom racing. The wind was very strong, the conditions tough, but finally I advanced one position. I'm happy with the performance. It was a good day for me. I'd really like slalom racing in the future. I love slalom. I practice slalom with a slalom board, this was my first time with Techno293Plus and it was great. I felt really good on the board today."
Raul will have a chance to show his skills again tomorrow with 4 slalom races planned for the ladies and 3 for the men, bringing the fleet to 15 races.
