Good morning from Rhodes! Today is a first day of the competition.


6th of June 2005Registration day - Practice race

5th of June 2005

Today on Rhodes 20 to 25 knots on the water. Some of the guys had too much and didn't make it. Allison broke two masts. The forecast for next days predicts up to 40kts so those without 9.8 can have a problem on the water. Tomorrow registration day, stay tuned.

On one of the practice-race pics, I saw a camera on a jet-ski...
Will there be any video materials posted on this site or not at all?

Question 4 Bruno. How come I don't see the beautiful blackhaired inscriptionsgirl (Catherine) on any of the pics of Rhodos? She was there in Ostend (WC FEx). No wonder windsurfing becomes less popular. Less old guys in the organisation & more chicas like her. :-)

Hi there Jamie. Glad am not only 1 who remembers that girl/woman. Saw and noticed her as well :-) Strange mix of ice queen and party animal she is. Jarek (Polish coach) must remember her as well.

Maui-No-Ka-Oi | 9th June 2005 (08:27:13)

Nah what Windsurfing needs is more Wankers like you two.

Jamie T | 9th June 2005 (08:31:32)

4 Bartek. Are you saying, Jarek scored with her? Could do with tips on defrosting that hot piece of ice.

ITA-100 | 9th June 2005 (09:54:43)

Streaming video is great but you'd show some regattas summary video for those who cannot watch it during the day.
Keep on,guys and thank you

Anonym | 9th June 2005 (10:07:35)

Please,follow the race with the camera!!!!!!
We know how is the sea!!!!!!!

Is the video smooth for anyone, or always jerky?

Why don't you let us see all parts of races in streaming video instead keeping in focus just a common point of the beach for a while?!

Anonym | 10th June 2005 (12:20:20)

Fantastisch Pascal - knap - jammer dat de livestream hier niet werkt, we hebben de race ni kunne volgen - proficiat man !

BEL404 | 10th June 2005 (12:29:17)

Komaan Belgen, een laatste inspanning

jedrek | 11th June 2005 (11:24:04)

It is the last day of European Champs - can you put some more effort in comments, news and results??? The level of the work that you are doing is so low that I can not even decribe it!!

Anonym | 11th June 2005 (11:54:45)

I totally agree with you,jedrek.
So high level in the water sol low in covering the event....

jedrek | 11th June 2005 (11:58:53)

you are rigth and this is sad - there is a pretty good live streaming on rwa.gr but they are too lasy to commnt anything - for more than an hour nothing was said...
I hope that another events are going to be covered on a much higher level (equivalent to the level that is shown on the water by the competitors!!)

Anonym | 11th June 2005 (12:15:37)

Le riprese fanno cagare!!!!!!!!!

Axel FRA-554 | 11th June 2005 (13:14:13)

Congratulations Antoine !!!!!!

Toutes mes félicitations à l'ensemble des coureurs français qui ont très bien navigués pendant le Championnat!!!!
Moi qui révise mon bac, je vous ai suivi tous les jours sur le site et sur la webcam.
Encore Bravo à tous!!!!
Tout spécialement à Julien qui a tout déchiré en Youth!
Et une fois de plus notre Antoine National a défendu l'honneur de la France !!!

Passez le bonjour à tout le monde de ma part, a Nico, Tom et notre Capitaine National (Didier)!
Encore bravo a tous les français et les autres concurrents car le championnat a été tres intérressant a regarder.

Bon retour à tous.

Alex | 11th June 2005 (14:32:26)

Belgian inscriptions girl: some facts.
1. name is Trine not Catherene
2. Polish coach is Jerry not Jarek
3. she is a sales rep for a French lingerie brand
4. she is single (for the moment)
Talk about a prize bird!

Chris | 11th June 2005 (14:33:35)

Well done on a great effort.

Brigitte | 11th June 2005 (18:19:06)

First I did not want to write anything but i think Trine was in Ostend at the NSC. She was friendly, efficiente and spoke a lot of languages. That is why she was working there so not because of her looks. This is very derogatoiry and not connected to the important thing: surfing. So boys, i hope this stops now.

La famille + la Gwada | 11th June 2005 (19:23:28)

Felicitations à Julien (fra 421) et Antoine (fra 192).
La famille + la Gwada pensent à vous.

félicitations pour ta 1ère place en youth et ta superbe place en senior.
à très bientôt sous le soleil

Laurent MANSON (FRA 433) | 13th June 2005 (00:34:20)

Congratulations to Antoine, Juju, Nico, Aurélien, Erwan, Florent, and all the frenchies !
Many thanks to formulawindsurfing.org that broadcasted excellents photos and comments of the Europeans 2005 (is it possible to download hi-resolution photos ? Where ?) . This big event was such exciting !
The live streaming was good but now, it's over...
What about adding a few videos as you did in 2004 ? (Such a great event is perfect to promote our passion. It needs maximum media coverage)
Many thanks to everybody who makes this event unforgetable (racers, regatta crew, sponsors, medias, ...)

Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
