14th of August 2013, Latvia, 2013 FORMULA WINDSURFING EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP & IFCA SLALOM GRAND PRIX

Today was a day for slalom - 2 eliminations completed....

Despite an attempt to start racing at 1100 the wind was just too light, and straight onshore, to enable the big boards and sails to get off the beach. Over night the onshore breeze made sure there were plenty of waves to greet the sailors as they arrived at the beach, it was always going to be a difficult day for formula. After several squalls the wind eventually swung a little more sideshore and after a long postponement it was decided to try again. But, as the race committee returned to station, the wind picked up significantly averaging 18 knots with gusts of 25. It was decided to switch to slalom and release he formula sailors for the day. Of course everyone stayed to watch the action and enjoy some excellent slalom racing.

Heat board and course diagram had already been prepared early in the morning - two heats of 12, with a 10 man final (the top 5 from each), with the others to the losers final.

It was another good day for Steve Allen (AUS-0) with two wins followed by Arnon Dagan (ISR-1) with two second places, and these two dominated proceeding. Meanwhile 3rd place overall was keenly contested between Janis Preiss (LAT-23), Maciek Rutkowski (POL-23) and Michal Polanowski (POL-16) - Janis finishing one point ahead of his rivals.
