The world's fastest windsurfers will battle for glory at the 2015 Formula Windsurfing World Championships, in Praia da Vitoria, on the Terceira Island, Azores.

The racers' list includes top performers such as three-time world champion Steve Allen, two-time winner Ross Williams, and the 2013 Formula Windsurfing world champion Casper Bouman.

However, these giants will have to step up their game, as reigning South American champion Gonzalo Costa Hoevel, and European champion Sebastian Kördel prepare the Azorean assault.

Sailors from 17 countries and three continents will race for medals between April 7th-12th. The Azores archipelago offers challenging Atlantic winds that are constantly shifting in strength and direction.

The 2015 Formula Windsurfing World Championships will crown new champions in winds ranging between 12 and 25 knots, and sudden weather changes. Who will tackle the four seasons of the Azores?
