21st of November 2016, Portugal, World Championship

Alexandre Cousin is the 2016 Formula Windsurfing World Champion


There is a new name on the plaque of champions – Alexandre Cousin from France is the 2016 Formula Windsurfing World Champion. To claim his first world title Alex won 3 of the 7 races completed and posted consistently high results in the others, finishing the championship with the lowest overall score before discarded races.


Despite several attempts it was not possible to conclude further races as the wind was very unstable on the final day of the championship. Full marks to the organiser and race committee for their efforts throughout the past few days. Once again Praia da Vitoria, Terceira and the Azorean authorities delivered a great event and showed what a wonderful location they have for international championships.
