South American Windsurfing Championship
Buenos Aires

Marcos Galvan (ARG) completed a virtually faultless performance at the South American Windsurfing Championship by winning the final two races.
However, his final victory was thanks to Martin Benitez (ARG) being called OCS. Unfortunately the Race Committee were slow to raise the individual recall flag, giving Martin no chance to correct his mistake so after a redress hearing, he was granted average points and took second place overall from his brother Mariano, who also took the youth championship prize.

Catalina Walther (ARG) took the women´s title and now seems almost certain to be selected for the Pan American Games in August.

The Prize Giving held at on Saturday evening was much enjoyed by all with formula one motor racing style showers for the audience thanks to the supply of free beer provided by Quilmes.
