Three races for the Techno 293 Fleet, on the final day of the 2014 African Championships in Bejaia. It was down to the last race to declare Ramzi-Ahmed Boudjatit (ALG-23) the champion. In second place Safouan Mami (TUN-5) was on fire, taking the bullets in races 8 and 9, but a third in his final race and a win for Ramzi-Ahmed meant a two point difference in the end. Imed Brighet (ALG-28) took the well deserved third place on the podium, 16 points clear of the next rival.
Likewise, in the Raceboard Fleet three races today. Three separate race winners but there was no beating Kheireddine Boussaha (ALG-11) for the championship title. He finished a good 7 points clear ahead. The battle between Youcef Andjechairi (ALG-06) and Faycal Benserai (ALG-16) was settled on the final race. They had equal points at the end of race 7 but Youcef took the win for race 8 taking him just one point ahead.
The podium order remained the same after two more races for RS:X. Hamza Bouras (ALG-12) took gold, 6 points clear of his closest rival Zakaria Belaidouni (ALG-27) who held on to his silver position by just one point ahead of Aly Sultan (EGY-8) in bronze place.
The Race Committee has worked exceptionally hard to bring the best racing possible in the unexpectedly difficult conditions and thanks go to everyone involved in staging a great event and to the competitors for maintaining their friendly competitive spirit.
