15th of May 2012, Germany, 2012 Formula Windsurfing European Championship

Day zero reports

May 15th was registration and preparation day, but unfortunately there was not enough wind to allow the racers to practice on the water. Those that arrived a day earlier were able to get on the water - and for some it was the first real chance to test their new equipment. The wind forecast looks "challenging" for the next two days - with strong onshore winds in prospect. As you would expect on Sylt there is a huge presence of tents and stalls supplying food , bier , clothing & accessories; and plenty of public visiting the event site.

Check out the photos supplied by Gerrit de Jong - who is here as a member of the protest committee. From Day 1 a daily gallery will be published on the event website.
