2015 Club Balai Isabel RS:One World Championships - Day 2

December 10, 2015

Taal Lake, Philippines 7th-12th December

 

Drama and explosive races for the second day of racing!

 

The RS:One Class, in partnership with the Philippines Windsurfing Association, the Philippines Sport Commission and the Philippines Olympic Committee, is organising the 2015 Club Balai Isabel RS:One World Championships from the 7th to 12th December in Taal Lake, Philippines.

 

The championship, open to all, allows international racers to compete through innovative race formats like The Pulsar (compact slalom, America's Cup style) and Marathon (long distance).

 

RS:One is a multi generational, one-design windsurfing board featuring an easy and light performing 7.8 rig. Espoirs (youth under 22 years old), Seniors (under 40 year old) and Masters (older than 40), men and women, can race together on the same starting line in a collective fleet.

 

Taal Lake has delivered another brilliant racing day with 5 more races. In the morning, 3 Pulsar races (reaching start), prioritised the speed while the 2 afternoon Regatta races demanded tactical ability with challenging shifty winds.

 

In the women fleet, current leader Pilar Lamadrid makes the drama with her second over early of the competition. She pays cash her risk taking by sliding to the third place behind new leader from Hong Kong Wai Yan Ngai followed by another Hong Kong sailor Kwan Ching Ma.

 

Despite his speed skills, USA Pedro Pascual haven't yet found the solution to contain the young Filipino Kaibigan Yancy winning rage. Philippines, again, with Coveta Geylord is now third after an impressive come back from his yesterday 6th position.

 

A day off has been granted tomorrow for racers with a volcano trek programmed.

 

Stay tuned!
