FW European Championships, Portugal

By April 26, 2006 No Comments


Just arrived back in Holland from Portugal where the 2006 European Championships for Formula Windsurfing were held. Portugal was a paradise, with plenty of atmosphere at the beach and of course the nightlife. Unfortunately, most of the action was off the water as we struggled to get enough wind to have a decent event. Three races were eventually run, but in marginal and fluky conditions which left many competitors (myself included) needing more races to drop our DSQ’s! Oh well, that’s windsurfing! Enjoy the pics, these are from the beach in Portimao where we raced and inside the gear tent.

Full reports on the event can be found at www.formulawindsurfing.org and the results here.

Another image of me inside the gear tent can be found here.
