The real news

[05.06] Two races on the final day of Riccione Formula Windsurfing Grand Prix .....
The early start scheduled for 8.00 am failed to deliver conditions similar to the previous days - and it turned into a long day for competitors and race committee. However mid afternoon , and despite overcast skies, the wind kicked in and 2 races were run in 12>14 knots before the storm wiped out the chance of further racing.

... Many sailors arrived today, some made the long drive like Denis and Kasper from Holand. Also fresh from a podium finish was Martin Ervin from Estonia and many more sailors from Baltic area and also Greece. Tomorrow is registration day and the wind looks the same. I guess Ceri will be here doing life reports and so this will be me signing off. Cheers,Wilhelm

Hope the wind will rise up a little the next days...
