Ivan Pastor has been crowned the 2014 Raceboard world champion, in Girona, Spain.

The windsurfing competition attracted 116 sailors from 16 countries. It was the largest Raceboard World Championship in recent years, and the overall performances stood at a very high level.

Ivan Pastor completely dominated the final races, but he knew he couldn't afford a slip-up, since he was carrying a DNF into his final results. But Maksymillian Wojcik won the penultimate race.

In the last battle, Pastor finished ahead of Wojcik and was declared champion as the winds made their way home. Nicolas Huguet secured a well-deserved third place and the overall Masters title.

In the Women's fleet, Ilona Grinberga, from Latvia, wrapped the 2014 Raceboard World Championship with two bullets and ended up on equal points with her team mate Vita Matise. However, she missed the golden trophy with her a DNC race coming into play. Joanna Sterling kept the bronze medal.
