2003 PWA CHAIRMAN'S REPORT
2002 was a great year for the PWA
www.pwaworldtour.com/origcol.php3?articleid=213
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The IWA and its member classes engaged in a consultative process at the end of last year to ensure that as many people within the industry as possible could freely express their opinions in regard to the selection by ISAF of new Olympic equipment. Naturally, it is impossible for everyone to agree on everything, however, three key views were expressed by almost everyone
a) The Olympic windsurfing equipment should change for 2008
b) The majority of the brands want tight measurement tolerances to be established. Not a One-Design Class.
c) The majority want a free builder class

2003 MAJOR EVENTS
2003 Petit Navire European FW Championships, Douarnenez, France, 3-8 May 2003
The organisation for the FW Europeans in Douarnenez announce officially that the winner of the lottery will go away with a Renault Twingo. Together with Euro 20,000 prize money, this event promises to be one of the most interesting of the year. The concept of the lottery is based on your daily results, those results will give you a certain amount of numbers, the better you are the more numbers you will get, in any case everybody from the first one to the last one will get numbers, you still have a big chance to win a car with a value over Euro 10,000
