The fastest windsurfers have been crowned at the 2014 Techno 293 World Championship, in Brest France.
Carlo Ciabatti is the Youth Boys world champion. With an unassuming start, 23rd on the leaderboard at the end of the first race, the 15-year-old Italian clawed his way up day by day. Next was 13th, and then came fifth and finally a first place.
Lucie Pianazza claimed the Youth Girls world title and took the first seven bullets of the championship. An emphatic win with less than half the points of her nearest rival, Katy Spychakov who was second in the junior fleet at the 2013 Worlds.

The organizers behind the Défi Wind Gruissan and the American Windsurfing Tour (AWT) are planning a windsurfing marathon in Maui, Hawaii.
According to Philippe Bru, founder of the French windsurfing race Défi Wind, and Sam Bittner, director of the American Windsurfing Tour Director, Défi Wind Maui may be a reality in the next years.
"I attended the Défi Wind Gruissan, in 2013, and knew right away I would love to see an event like this in Maui. Philippe Bru and I met up in Tahiti this past week for a racing event, and when we talked about the idea of working together to create the Defi Wind Maui, it was a perfect match," explains Bittner.
