The second event of the Winter Windsurf European Cup is under way.
After a very successful first event in Latvia, the second round is been held this weekend in Lappeenranta city, in Finalnad.
The first event in Latvia saw sailors from three countries: Latvia, Estonia and Finland, and they manage to have races both in Slalom and Course racing. With a wonderful sunny weather, the event missed a bit of stronger winds, but they made the most out the breeze and had results in both disciplines.
Winners of this first series WWEC 2009 go hi! in Latvia were Janis Preiss (Latvia) in slalom overall and Aleksandrs Leontjevs (Latvia) in course racing overall, receiving brand new PC`s „Gauja” from sponsors Capital.
The second WWEC 2009 round in Finland ( WWEC 2009 go Saimaa!) is locally organized by Lappeenrannan Pursiseura Surffijaos (Surf department of Lappeenranta Yacht Club, LrPS) and supported by goSaimaa.fi, Hiberna and Rautio Sports.
Soon we will have the results of this event and some nice white pictures to report!
