sui-76 | 10th July 2013 (14:21:35)

no - the result for qualifying round is carried forward as one race - a further 11 races (max) in final round

ceri | 10th July 2013 (14:46:44)

you can follow the racing on the official facebook page for the event - provided coutesy of title sponsor -Eset NOD32 Antivirus

Luca | 10th July 2013 (18:02:49)

Hi Ceri
Besides having a facebook page from the organizers , i think this site , as the main site from FW in the world , should have more data , such as live ticker , fotos , videos . We should focus pwa site and try to do something similar

ceri | 10th July 2013 (20:21:05)

we did not manage to complete the qualification series - one race for blue group short of finishing qualification

ceri | 11th July 2013 (14:55:27)

i cannot get regular internet to update the live ticker - but go to the event facebook page to follow the news

ceri | 11th July 2013 (14:57:39)

The overall results after 4 races in the qualification series are published on the event website

ceri | 12th July 2013 (06:47:04)

Racing continues today with the gold group racing 2 back to back races, followed by silver group.First possible warning signal at 1200

Any news about 2014 WORLDS and EUROPEANS ?

SeanAUS120 | 16th July 2013 (10:20:32)

2014 Worlds are in Azores, Portugal. Around April/May I think ... Ceri will confirm.

ap | 16th July 2013 (12:26:04)

Thanks Sean.

Anonym | 16th July 2013 (17:50:14)

0.5 meter chop to 5 meters swell....

ceri | 16th July 2013 (19:17:11)

Confirmed for 28th april to 4th May.
I hope to finalise the europeans soon

Anonym | 18th July 2013 (17:56:49)

Will this site be updated so in the future people can go here to see what happened in 2013 right now it is pretty weak...

al | 21st July 2013 (19:38:54)

Early worlds nxt year. We have icy water and winter in the north side of the clode at this time. Not for us nxt year, sorry,,,

ceri | 21st July 2013 (20:58:55)

Its not icy in the Azores! it should be a welcome opportunity for you . Cheap to get there - why not spend an extra week away - training - take a break from the icy blasts of the North Pole

al | 22nd July 2013 (13:00:25)

Yes, but world's without any time on water is not good for many of us. In november to april, we have frozen water allmost all over and it's very hard to compete in the worlds without any TOW and regattas in front. But it will for sure be a fine place to go for 90% of the FW sailor's

:-)

gre-969 | 22nd July 2013 (20:23:07)

Come to Greece for special training session in April, with race course set up everyday !!
get in contact with info@formula-windsurfing-association.gr for details. in April the temperature is about 20C. / 12-22 knots wind speed.

ceri | 23rd July 2013 (11:42:45)

i think the idea of some off season training camps is a great idea

vasco | 24th July 2013 (01:19:59)

Hello all, that time is the best time is Azores, the best time of wind, near of the summer the wind goes down. Regarding this year Masters European in 15 races on the schedule we made 12 races is very good. Don´t forget is the Worlds Championship, and if this championship is the Australia or New Zealand or some country in the south hemisferi, and worlds also will be in our winter. Azores is better because is very cheap come to azores is a European, also if you want you could come one week ealier to trainne, and for sure your will have wind everyday. Como next year to azores is a paradise, nature and windsurfing.

al | 24th July 2013 (08:34:13)

Hi. Tank you all for greate offer's to trainingcamps in front of the world's 014! Something to think abaout.

vasco | 29th July 2013 (01:37:39)

Hello all, regarding the Azores Worlds in 2014, the LOA allready had a meeting and we will prepare everything one week ealier, for all you guys that want to traine in Formula one week before the Worlds, with the same conditions of travel and accomodation´s that you will have during the week of the Worlds, also we have everyday the course on the water and a boat for all you guys traine. Near the event and in the NOR we will explain everything. Best Rgerads

Christian Nybø | 8th August 2013 (17:27:33)
