The wind has picked up! It is now constantly blowing with 15 to over 20 knots at the beach. gusts are reaching up to 25 knots. Several guys are on the water now to tune in their gear. Although thez all enjoy the wind after one week of low or even no wind conditions it is obvious that most of them have problems with the decision which equipment to register: one board, three sails and three fins seam to force everybody to decide where to leave a gap in the equipment portfolio...
10:00Good morning from sunny, warm and windy Portimao! Today is the inscription day here at the beach of Alvor. Club Overpower has agan prepared a perfect setup for a great event. Yesterday and overnight competitors arrived from everywhere in the World. A large group of competitors is making ist way from Santa Pola where the Formula Windsurfing European Championships ended on

The wind forecast for the next days is excellent. So finally we might get an event with nice wind and a lot of action on the water. Check out the forecast for Praia de Alvor yourself if you want!

FW remains the queen of windsurfing classes, like this race shows to everybody. It's time to dialogue between FW class and PWA.
the actual situation has to change.
Follow the italian rules.
