13th of October 2010Ceri report

10:24 | There will be no racing today. A reserve day was planned in the schedule for tomorrow. However with a good forecast for the last 3 days - and no wind today-the reserve day was brought forward. It looks like a good decision. Many of the racers and relatives have taken a tour into Rio, an opportunity not to be missed

12:47 | FW is an \"invitational\" class at the BRA FE championships. After 4 races on Saturday BRA3333, Paulo Dos Reis is leadinf from BRA50 and BRA5.

16:58 | Today is practice day for the competitors arriving early for the Youth & Masters Worlds. The organiser, Upwind, have two locations to operate the club - Base 1 and Base 2. The two centres are less than 10 minutes apart -by road. The Worlds will take place from base 1 - base 2 is the venue this weekend for the Brasilian FE Championships. FW competitors are also invited to join the event - and therefore have two training options to prepare themselves.

Gianni Franchini | 13th October 2010 (20:55:31)

Vai geometra !!

racer | 14th October 2010 (07:55:53)

why there is no info about conditions? about what was happening there?

formulafan | 14th October 2010 (09:06:35)

Only 20 racers taking part divided in 3 classes and again separated to light and heavy weight at the worlds? I think there is not a light- and heavy weight class rule for Youth and Junior, or I´m wrong? All in all its a joke - 20 riders at the worlds...

May be the officials should think about the place, the costs for the trip and if its not possible to do 1 event for the worlds (seniors, masters, youth, juniors, female/male) per year. That will lower the total costs for a lot of associations. No spanish racers in Brazil, no dutch, no portugese even... and for them its quiet cheap to fly over to Rio...

Anonym | 14th October 2010 (11:27:33)

May be the officials should think that FW is almost dead for youngs and youth.

Anonym | 14th October 2010 (13:55:16)

I,d would certainly go if I had a better financial situation. Nice to follow on internet.Keep up the good work!

Anonym | 14th October 2010 (18:03:01)

The Equipment list shown is completely useless fin wise when no correct info about fin type is included, i.e Virus 70, Virus 70, Virus 70 - 3 identical fins ?? No way! Let's have more realistic and informational info available, otherwise just leave out the useless info.

Anonym | 14th October 2010 (20:50:35)

Who cares about that fin thing?

Anonym | 15th October 2010 (13:21:46)

everyone that cares about going fast my friend...

anna | 15th October 2010 (18:14:46)

Maybe some fresh pictures? There is too little information. More please! Kisses for Jacek, Arek, Hania i Milena.

Comment to the post from 14th October 2010 (12:27:33) wrote by Anonym : I'm sure FW is more fun than RSX for youngs and youth. kids in my group like more planing not pumping if they can choose... I prefer message for my students "windsurf must make your mind happy not be like suffering... but parents, coaches,politics, business people have allways better viewpoint for next generation... I just hope to bring in to the FW open some new youngster in next year.

ceri | 15th October 2010 (21:11:50)
