Dungarvan

Wind on the very last day brought finally results for the speed windsurfers and kiteboarders in Dungarvan, Ireland.

There was just enough time to complete a few fast runs along the speed strip, with the fastest speed of the event set by Dave Williams (GBR, Best) at 44.2 knots over 250m.

Andrea Baldini (ITA) set the top speed in the windsurfers fleet with slightly over 40 knots, and Zara Davis (GBR) took victory in the womens fleet.

In the Kiteboarding fleet, Jason McCaffrey (GBR, Cabrinha) and Jemma Grobbelaar (GBR, Flexifoil) were on top after two completed rounds.

The event came to an end with the prize giving ceremony held in the Dungarvan Harbour Yacht Club, and a party that is lasting until the late night.
