South American championship 2017 - Highlights

Club Nautico San Isidro hosted South American windsurfing championships 2017. Beautiful but very challenging location, venue of the 2018 Youth Olympic Games, tested all participants in variety of condition during the week and best took home the titles. For some highlight of their career, for most only another stop on their windsurfing journey.

Beautiful but very tricky day

Day 2 of the 2017 South American windsurfing championships and Buenos Aires river delta is revealing more of its secrets. It was a beautiful but very tricky day with light wind and strong current.  As Fernando Consorte said, "Olympic Conditions - pumping, pumping, pumping, pumping!"

This river has brought up many great champions and Coach Raul Saubidet explained why.  "The wind was from the north and sometimes from the north east whilst the current went from north to south so sometimes, when it is light winds, you have to go a different direction from the current, then go with the current when you feel it is windy - and take care of the lay lines!"

3 further races were completed for all fleets.  Always the top guys were in the front.  The flat water, difficult start, changing wind direction . . . "This has been the best test for the Techno Class up to now. They now know everything they need to know about Buenos Aires in two days!"
Four World Sailing classes are competing for continental titles - including both the Olympic windsurfing class (RS:X) and the Youth Olympic windsurfing class (Techno 293 Plus).  

3 racing days still to go!  Stay tuned on the official event website!
