Pole Position

With
63 competitors from Europe, and the Americas, the 2nd leg of the Formula
Windsurfing Grand Prix held in Sopot Poland from June 4th- 7th was regarded
by all as ‘a great success.’ The host club- SKZ Hestia located on the
beach front town of Sopot on the Baltic Sea- organized a superb regatta
with 8 races over 4 days.

Generally, racers found themselves confronted with light winds and a steep
chop for close racing held in front of the Sopot Pier.

Steve
Allen, AUS-0, from Australia walked away as the winner closely trailed
by ARG-3 Gonzalo Costa Hoevel in 2nd and DEN-111 Jesper Vesterstrom in
3rd.

Debuting in its 2nd event this season, womens winner, AUS 911- Allision
Shreeve showcased the proposed Formula One Design concept. The new class
is being proposed as an alternate to the hybrid RSX class for the 2012
Olympics. For
