35 competitors from 7 nations completed registration at the 2015 South American Windsurfing Championships taking place in Paracus, Peru.
It is great news to see racers from 5 South American countries - Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Peru and Venezuela - being joined in Paracus by representatives from the Netherlands and USA.
Day 0 of the championships saw the start of registration, rigging and training, a practice race and an opening ceremony with dinner.
The following day it was down to the serious business of championship racing in 3 classes - Raceboard, RS:X and Techno 293 - where 2 races were completed for all.
It was a fantastic start for Daniel Flores (VEN) and Fernando Consorte (ARG) in their respective classes, RS:X and Raceboard, with two bullets each.
Jim Someren (NED) had it tougher sharing one win apiece with Geronimo Nores (USA); but heading the leader board at the end of the day with a second place in race 1.
With 4 more days of racing to go it is still anybody’s title to win.
