After The Storm, The Calm
Posted On:  12/08/2018 09:03:33

Following yesterday's storms, today, the final day of the regatta, dawned flat calm, and stayed that way until past the point when it was possible to launch any racing.

But given the effort all the young sailors have put in over 5 days in very mixed and at times testing conditions, they deserved a day off, even if they would have preferred to sail.  

Big up to everyone, competitors, coaches, organisers, volunteers, race committee, jury and everyone else who made the effort to come, they have been rewarded with an excellent week, showcasing everything that is best about windsurfing and the Techno classes. Serious competition, great skills, close results, and a fantastic spirit among everyone present. No wonder it's one of the most dynamic classes in the sport today.

There's not enough space to congratulate everyone individually, but our new champions, 2018 vintage, deserve a mention, as they make their journeys home with their gold medals. So with no racing today, it's as-you-were from the overnight standings, meaning that Israel and Italy now have pretty much equal claim to the Techno crown. 

Congratulations to our new Techno World Champions:
Mika Kafir, ISR <Junior Female>
Alessandro Graciotti, ITA <Junior Male>
Naama Greenberg, ISR <Youth Female>
Daniel Basik-Tashtash, ISR <Youth Male>
Giorgio Speciale, ITA <Youth Plus Female>
Nicolo Renna, ITA <Youth Plus Male>
Nene Sugimoto, JPN <Open Plus Female>
Yuta Iwasaki, JPN<Open Plus Male>

But mostly, well done to all the young sailors, you gave us a great week, winner or not. Have a fantastic sailing year, see you in Varkiza at the Europeans.
