It was not an easy day for the Race Committee and the sailors, but the trouble ahead could not have been foreseen.

Thick dark clouds with heavy thunder arrived around 10 in the morning ruining the day's plan and causing a 4-hour delay in schedule. The wind did not make it any easier afterwards as the direction shifted multiple times during the race, forcing the committee to abandon racing, reset the racecourse and start over. ......( more )

It's a World championship and it's never easy. The first day started with a fight, but unfortunately it was a fight of frontal wind against the usual sea breeze that appears here normally. That caused some delay and the scheduled starts had to be postponed until the late afternoon........( more )

Over 80 sailors came to the beautiful Spanish city of Salou for the Raceboard World Championships and the event brought some real talent including the likes of Joao Rodrguez, Ivan Pastor, Nicolas Huguet, Tuuli Petaja and Blanca Manchon.

Those who came to Gizycko, Poland for the Masters had a chance to race in similar conditions this time around as a predominantly sunny venue offered light wind racing throughout the week.
