Cancun North American Windsurfing Championships 2014 – Day three

Cancun North American Windsurfing Championships 2014 SVK1 Sports
Cancun North American Windsurfing Championships 2014 - Just two races on day three in light conditions. In the Techno 293 Fleet, the boys from the USA are hammering the competition with brothers Geronimo and Maximo Nores in first and second and Steven Cramer in third.


The sibling rivalry is intense as it was Maximo in the top spot yesterday! We also learnt yesterday that Steven loves these conditions and proved that with two more bullets today.

These three podium hoggers are a clear 14 points ahead of their nearest rivals. However, the Windguru forecast for the final day is for stronger winds again so the final places are by no means certain. A lot could happen right the way down the fleet as there are some very interesting battles going on. Excitement builds!


First girl Mariana Aguilar is working her way up the overall leaderboard and is now in seventh place whilst Adolfo de la O is holding his own as first junior.

Many kids now are progressing from Techno to the Olympic level. Ricardo Santos from Brazil: 'I love this class, it is amazing to watch them. It is one of the best classes in the sailing world, just like the Optimist. It's nice to watch them race, a really high level, starts are good, lay-line is good, they are all really good sailors. I am happy for them and I think it is amazing when you see 450 sailors at the worlds.


Ricardo Santos is the undoubted champion of the RS:X 9.5 fleet stretching his lead to 11 points ahead of his closest rival with a bullet and second today. The real battle is between the Mexicans, David Mier y Teran and Ignacio Berenger, as to who will take silver and who will have to settle for bronze. Just one point separates these two after David beat Ricardo to take the bullet in the second race of the day.

Demita Vega is also untouchable in the 8.5 fleet but allowed Mexican Youth Juan Varela to beat her over the line and he moves up to second place overall. We now have two Mexican ladies on the podium as Nicole Level steps up to third. This means that yesterday's second placed Brenno Francioli has fallen down to fourth.
Results after 8 races

As we move into the last day, the battle is on!

This is a great event, not only the quality of competition but also a wonderful venue for it. Carlos Padilla Becerra, President of the Mexican Olympic Committee: 'We are lucky that nature has afforded us the luxury of this scenery and, together with a great organisation, international associations and the Mexican Federation, we are looking forward to staging many more events of this type at an international level.'
