Point-7 and Starboard International windsurfing team rider Keith Atkinson was back in top form over the weekend at Rutland Water. The reigning Formula and seven times British Champion was in action in the UKWA’s final Inland series event for 2007.
Keith sustained a back injury in the UKWA National event held at Tenby earlier in the season, causing him to withdraw from the event. However following expert treatment from his sports physio and on the water training at Lake Garda in Italy last week he was again ready for action.
There was a strong fleet entered for the event including Keith’s rival for the 2007 championship title Alan Jackson who was keen to gain points having travelled down from Scotland. However Keith won all six Formula races in the medium airs. This coming weekend is the final event in the UKWA National Formula Championship series at Clacton. So get down to the south coast to watch Britain\’s best formula racers compete for the final time in 2007.
