There is no wind at santa pola, the worlds should be in Fortaleza again, 15 races. You should make the worlds in a place that winds for sure, travel for many hours, wait the hole year for this event, and have a Corea 2!?? Te european was a no wind event in this Santa Pola. Its important for the future of the class have competition with a lot of races, thats where u can see who was really the best.

Anonym | 10th February 2008 (05:33:01)

The organization its really very good, at the european they were great, but what we really need is the wind.

Fernando | 11th February 2008 (00:09:15)

the Europeans took place in April, when the wind might not be as predictable

later in the season, these guys do have more wind

so I think they'll manage to organize a great race WITH wind

PS: I am not from Santa Pola, I am from Mallorca and we have quite similar weather

Anonym | 11th February 2008 (03:01:12)

About the organization i am not afried, i am sure they will make a nice event, but I think the guys who decide where to be the worlds should always look for windy places, thats the most important thing. Go for a long flight, spend 2 weeks away from home, we must have at least go to a place that we expect to have a lot of races..

Anonym | 11th February 2008 (15:56:07)

so maybe in that time we get some public?

Fernando | 11th February 2008 (21:46:07)

>> but I think the guys who decide where to be the worlds should always look for windy places

maybe if those windy places offered themselves as organizers, then we´d get windier races

4p | 12th February 2008 (00:56:11)

wind is not a problem... we'll get 7knots.
problem is to get the audience..
last year there was nobady on the beach..

Anonym | 12th February 2008 (17:08:17)

7k for formula windsurfing is at the bottom end of the wind range for the class
