Second day of FW Worlds

Today was as good as yesterday: Windy and sunny, up until 12PM. The first race had a squall come through which made the wind flukey, but it was still fun to watch. The second race had Gonzalo Costa Hoevel hot on the heels of Antoine Albeau at first, but in the end Antoine pulled away decisively; it seems almost unnatural how fast he is compared to everyone else.

I put together a few minutes of the video I took between yesterday and today so you can see what's been going on down here: Excellent conditions combined with world class competitors and great organizing for the first time in this hemisphere. I hope this is more than a one time thing!

Remember, results are here.


  1. check out on the video, kitesurfer coming as
    close as he can to the race buoy, there's whole
    ocean to play with and he has to come close to get
    some attention ... it's hard enough to jibe in the race of this caliber, now you has to worry that this idiot with jump on your head by accident..

  2. Awesome, thanks for sharing! Much appreciated CMS.
