We are now at the end of the third year of this Executive Committee and I would like to look back for a moment to better focus on the way ahead.

It is with some satisfaction that I see the main goals of our vision and programme have been in the great part addressed but one thing stands out to me and it is the spirit of our group; it is still exactly the same as it was when we started, still pushing very hard. I need to thank them once again, I have been very lucky. . . .[more]

Everybody (well, not exactly . . .) was waiting for the wind but we got some dark clouds instead, and some rain too, threatening the fourth day of the Techno 293 World Championships in Cagliari.

A long morning by the beach, under a grey sky and with no sign of wind. The Techno 293 Worlds' fleet run into one of those slow days that one would expect on different racing courses - not in Cagliari. Well, it can happen here too, sometimes. After an early lycra ceremony to celebrate the best sailors from the first day, the kids had plenty of time to check the equipment, make new friends, play fresbee, snack around or take a nap.......( more )

The RS:X World Windsurfing Championships in Mussanah, Oman, delivered another cracking day of competition for the opening races of the Final Series.

Thirteen knots of wind, mid-afternoon, was enough to create thrilling speeds for the men's fleets both upwind and down and impressive tactical racing. The newly formed Gold and Silver fleets - determined by rankings from the Qualifying Series earlier in the week - really raised the intensity today.
