Photos of the opening day in the rain and the cold characterise the beginning of the 2014 African Windsurfing Championships for Techno 293, RS:X and Raceboard Classes taking place in Bejaia, 28th December to 4th January. The welcome was warm but competitors had to wrap up well against the extreme weather conditions for the Opening Ceremony.
All hopes of racing were quashed by weather conditions on day one - wind peaks reached 32 knots, freezing cold, rain, hail, thunder and lightning - yet the race committee still went out on the water to monitor the conditions for developments of wind on the race area.
