The hot weather and light winds made racing conditions difficult over the final two days of competition at the South American Championships hosted at the Peru Beach centre in San Isidro, Buenos Aries.[more]
The formula windsurfing fleet were eventually able to complete 2 races on day 4 – with one win apiece for Gonzalo Costa Hoevel (ARG-3) and Janis Preiss (LAT-23). Over in the formula experience fleet only one race race was completed – and a fine win for Alessio Botteri (PER-20).
The final day did not deliver suitable conditions for racing despite attempting to start one race – and the scoreboard remained unchanged from the previous day.
Gonzalo added the Formula South American title to his list of achievements in 2013, winning 8 of the 10 races in the championship.
Eduardo Kretschmer (CHI-1) is the 2013 Formula Experience South American Champion, with an equally impressive 6 race wins out of 9.
The top 3 finishers in each fleet:
1) Gonzalo Costa Hoevel (ARG-3)
2) Gabriel Browne (BRA-50)
3) Janis Preiss (LAT-23)
1) Eduardo Kretschmer (CHI-1)
2) Alessio Botteri (PER-20)
3) Matias Canseco (PER-99)
