Eventually, 21 windsurfers gathered in Yyteri Surfcenter to participate in Formula and Raceboard Nordics in 27.-30.7.2017.
Raceboard class got only seven competitors entering the race, with no participants from other countries. Luckily the class got enough wind and completed 6 starts in Yyteri, reaching official results.
The fight for the 1st place was raced between father Juha and son Benjamin Blinnikka. FIN-4 Benjamin dominated easily the light wind starts whereas FIN-6 Juha had the races of stronger winds. Eventually, light wind conditions ruled the race and Benjamin won in the overall results. Congratulations!
Formula class got more participants, 12 windsurfers from Finland and two from Sweden. Unfortunately, the weather did not favor Formula riders, resulting only two sailed races.
Thank you to all competitors, officials and especially sailing club BSF for organizing the boats with crew and buoys for the race!
