Only 18 spots on the podium, between Under 17, Under 15 and Plus. But after one week of racing at the Techno 293 World Championship 2015 in Cagliari, all 336 youth windsurfers from 26 nations and five continents are winners.
Fight to the last race to win a medal and a fun closing ceremony for the Worlds in Cagliari.
Day five, time to start celebrating for some new world champions. For the whole Techno 293 fleet it simply was another great day of racing here in Cagliari.
After today, the biggest fleets of the championship split into Gold and Silver. Only the best 50 per cent will race for the medals, while the others will sail in Silver fleet. Very important day for those trying to make the cut to stay in the top half to race with the top contenders.
It takes the skills of captain combined with a flow of MC to manage a bunch of new age pirates like these Techno kids. But we have such a person and he is in the right position. Class president Ezio Ferin stays always positive and keeps looking at the bright side of life. And so far he is very satisfied the way the things are going at this World championship in Cagliari.
A big event with 334 competitors from 26 countries and 5 continents. A first day with three races sailed for each fleet, smoothly. And four months ago nobody at Windsurfing Club Cagliari knew that the World championship for the biggest windsurfing class was coming this way. Masters of organising an event on a short notice...
