RS:X Worlds - Racing halted with gusts up to 50 knots + Video

'2012 World Windsurfing Championships'    Vincenzo Baglione

At the World Windsurfing Championships in Cadiz, it didn't take long for the Race Committee to pull the plug on racing. The committee boat anchored and with a few minutes, their bowroller was bent out of shape as the first 40 knot gust came through. White caps transformed into vapor as the sea became streaked with white lines...

The AP over A went up and racing was cancelled for the day. The forecast for tomorrow is more of the same. The medal races a rescheduled for 1200hrs as usual. We'll keep our fingers crossed on that.

In the meantime, a $1000 Winner Takes All Speed Session was organized inside the sea wall. 18 guys and six women went out to see what they could lay down over the 100 meter course. The strongest gust registered on the race committee boat was 50 knots plus as the sailors showed some impressive board handling skills.

The rules are simple. Sailors had to use RS:X Class legal equipment to make two runs. The fastest run scoops the prize money. Men $1000. Women $1000

Peak speed for the guys was 31.86 knots and the girls was 25.92 knots

And the winners are...

RS:X Men Speed Session
1. NED8 Dorian van Rijsselberge - 31.86 knots
2. RUS4 Dmitrii Polishchuk - 29.97 knots
3. NOR7 Sebastian Wang-Hansen - 29.70 knots

RS:X Women Speed Session
1. POL1279 Hanna Zembrzuska - 25.92 knots
2. POL09 Agnieszka Bilska - 25.38 knots
3. POL8 Zofia Klepacka - 24.30 knots
