Most of the best foilboard riders were there and here are the results. Congratulations to Johnny for a big win and to young Oly Bridge for keeping the pressure on and to all the riders.

Haven't seen anybody filming :(
I planned to gopro last two days racing but there was bad or no wind.
Friday another windless day.
I am really upset I did not cover the starts of second day. That were the only moments I stayed in the leading group :wink:

They ran a qualifying series with two fleets and separate races. There was never enough wind to run the finals with the winners form the two fleets.

Appendix A 8.1:
If there is a series-score tie between two or more kiteboards, it shall be broken in favour of the kiteboard(s) with the best single excluded race score(s).
However I guess in a case of fleet racing the ties are broken in favour of the racers competing in the same fleet. Don't remember the fleet assignments for Olly and Nico. Pretty sure that Olly got better scoring riding against Nico.

Correct :thumb:

I opened a topic on Polish forum. No videos. Some pictures, my notes in Polish about the event and that beautiful area (use google translator):

I digged out one short phone video taken from RC boat:

BTW: second page of results including the rest of French armada:
Image
More or less 3/4 riders used the foilkites. Hard to beat them.
Therefore I was so suprise to see performance of 16 year old French rider Theo de Ramecourt who was on Cabrinha Velocity and KFA foil. He ended up on 9th position :o

There were 3 inflatable kite's riders in top 20.
