2014 Formula Windsurfing European Championships: welcome Viganj, Croatia

Sebastian Kordel is the new 2014 Formula Windsurfing European champion. The 23-year-old sailor from Germany discarded a fifth place in the final race held in Viganj, Croatia.

Kordel was also crowned winner of the Open Croatian Championship, leaving Casper Bouman and Philip Korczycki in the remaining podium places. A total of 60 windsurfers raced in Vinganj, despite unstable weather conditions all week long.

On the final day of competition, in sight of the majestic Queen Elizabeth that had just cruised into port, the flags fluttered into life and it was game on - a frenzy of activity with three back to back races, a short break, then two more races.

On the Croatian side, Enrico Marotti took the 17th place in the overall rankings and became the new National champion in Formula Windsurfing class. Vido Jeramaz and Teo Marinovic kept the silver and bronze medals.
