After 2 days and 8 races in the 2012 South American Formula Windsurfing Championships, Gonzalo Costa Hoevel (ARG3) leads from Paulo dos Reis (BRA3333) and Wilhelm Schurmann (BRA999).
The conditions both days were similar, wind between 10 and 18 knots. Gonzalo is very fast, has won all the races, then Paulo and the rest.
Tomorrow and the rest of the days are expected the same conditions.
