Patrik Pollak - the 2016 Raceboard Masters World Champion!
Posted On:  04/06/2016 20:03:07

It was Slovakia's Patrik Pollak and the local Vita Matis, who triumphed in the 2016 Racboard Masters World Championships held on Kizezers lake in Riga, Latvia.

Light wind and sun dominated all 15 races, which were held during the 5 days of racing with only the final day providing wind speed of 20 plus knots.

58 of the competing masters from 12 countries had the chance to race in the place where windsurfing started in USSR more than 40 years ago." - said the new World Champion. "It wasn’t easy. The shallow lake provided tough, shifty conditions and regarding the fact that we are all masters the sport level was pretty high. It turned out quite a challenge for many of us more used to the sea breeze. I really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere the local club offers, with lot of social interaction giving the windsurfers a chance to exchange equipment tuning tips." "Some really innovative" - he concluded.
