Windsurfer World Champs start in Mondello

With the first races this afternoon supported by easterlies, the World Championship of the windsurfer class started in Mondello, organized by the circle Albaria in the 40th anniversary of the foundation. On the water are 350 competitors from 25 nations. Three races were completed in the medium-heavy and heavy categories. Two races for light and medium light, for the under 19 and for women.

In the Light fleet, the leader is Marco Casagrande, among the medium-light, Nicola Campus, among the medium-heavy Alessandro Alberti and among the heavy, Riccardo Giordano. Lauria Linares leads the women’s ranking and the young Blasco Aronica is leading the under 15.

Most disappointed is Marco Casagrande spearhead of the club Albaria. After winning the first two races among the lights, he was deprived of the third success just 30 meters from the finish, when the jury canceled the race for the wind. “Having three wins in my pocket would have given me more confidence and confidence for the rest of the championship. But I’ll get over it. Australians and French present themselves as the most fearsome competitors”, were his words at the end of the race of the home surfer.

Tomorrow at 10.30, wind permitting, on the calendar are three more course races and possibly also some slalom races.
