12th of April 2015, Portugal, 2015 Azores Formula Windsurfing World Championships

Gonzalo is the 2015 Formula Windsurfing World Champion ......


Four races on the final day of the event saw the completion of a 12 race series for this year world title.
Gonzalo Costa Hoevel from Argentina ended the day on the perfect score of 9 points from 12 races – 9 race wins secured him of victory and his first formula windsurfing world title.
Gonzalo had been no stranger to the podium at the worlds but it was his first time on the top step – a worthy champion.
The battle for silver (2nd ) and bronze (3rd) in the overall ranking was cranked to the max when young danish rider Sebastian Kornum took what he thought was his first event win in race 9 at the start of todays racing. However he was judged to be over the line early at the start and was disqualified. Not to be deterred he fought back with a bullet in the second race of the day.
Race 11 (3rd race of the day) and the pressure was on – not only were competitors pitched into the increasingly tense personal battles , but they had to contend with winds gusting 30+knots.
The final race of the day and Janis Preiss from Latvia, one of the most experienced competitors in the game, held his nerve and finished the race in front of Sebastian to secure second place overall in the championship.

A great days racing and the perfect end to another fantastic championship in the Azores.
