Young New Zealand Windsurfers bring home Gold for the Worlds women race and a set of great results for the Europeans

Great results were brought home by six teens who attended the Worlds, Europeans and Baltic Cup. The Gold Cup for the Worlds was won by Xanthe Bowater and both boys and girls were well placed in their classes.
Windsurfing is growing as a popular option for young New Zealand sailors, and New Zealand sent a group of teenagers to the European race circuit over their summer to race RS:Xs and Technos against the worlds best young talent.

Hi all,
Yesterday was the last day of the World Championships in Sopot. It has been a fantastic regatta where both of us are pleased with our results. Fenella finished 56th overall (19th in silver fleet) and I finished 1st woman and 6th overall (against the men)! Very excited to be bringing home some silverware! (click through for full report)

Xanthe is the Kiwis best performer consistently placing in the top 5 in all of her races. " go Xanthe"

Hi again! It has been a while since we last wrote, and plenty has happened!
After our first email we caught our flight to Paris, where we stayed at a nice little house for two days and learnt to use the underground train system to explore the city. We got to see some cool sights from up the Eiffel tower and Montmartre, with beautiful weather for us.
