Three days of competition at Pirita Beach, Tallinn, Eastonia concluded on Sunday 15 June. This international wind- and kitesurfing regatta formed a leg of the NeilPryde Baltic Cup, and was attended by 86 surfers from five countries.
During the first two days of the competition almost autumnal weather was dominating - winds of 15-20 knots, air temperature barely 15 degrees, water temperature just a bit warmer than 10 degrees and cloudy skies with intermittent rain showers.
Sunday showed already the sun, but the air temperature did not change much. However, the wind speed was dropping to 6-9 knots, which presented a challenge for both the organizers and the surfers. In total, for Formulas, Raceboards and Technos 8 races were held over the 3 days plus 9 for the kites.
In Techno 293 U15 division the overwhelming victory went to Latvia. Namejis Dreimanis won all the races, and left second place 14 pts away. The battle for the second and third place between Oscar Naabel EST122 and Gregor Schneider was won by Naabel the two points ahead of Schneider.
In Techno 293 U17 division victorious Latvian Aleksandra Goods gained five points advantage ahead of Estonian Alfred Kalm in 2nd place. The status of the third place was not decided until the final day of the event. Latvian Ketija Birzule, who won the last race, rose to 3rd just one point behind 2nd.
