Istanbul, Turkey

The Bay of Beylikduzu is continuing to deliver incredible, and very windy, windsurfing conditions for the gathered organizers, media and competitors.
"Pulsar", a compact course, racing on a downwind slalom with a reaching start, turn the event into a incredible show with racers becoming slalom gladiators with wind gusts up to 29 knots.

In these magical conditions, the racers speed and control is amazing. The RS:One has shown its incredible performances range, featuring great control and astonishing top speed.

Turkish PWA slalom star, Pamir Sackan, was one of the favorites with this format, but, despite a good rank in the races, he was not able to contain the aptitude of the Asian Hong Kong winning machine. The Philippines squad has been also in control in wind conditions that they are not used to. Guiseppe Zerillo from Italy is a man to watch as he is on third position, patiently awaiting a mistake from the Hong Kong leaders. It is an identical scenario in the female division with Israeli Shai Blank in third place while Hong Kong girls are leading.

Tomorrow, the guru sees pink, stay tuned!
