Havoc delays Speed Sailing
Following a number of unfortunate coincidences on both Sunday and Monday, the Challengers patience and mental strength are being put to the test. France’s Antoine Albeau was not as lucky as he was forced to withdraw altogether from the Speed Sailing Challenge in Arinaga due to a severe eye infection he developed over the weekend. Albeau will leave the islands with mixed feelings but also a personal best of 41,92 knots he established just two days ago.

Surf the World
Well, Let's just stick to the North coast of Europe for the moment Here's a story about two guys who take a month's holiday each year to continue their epic journey from the UK to North Africa. Chris Gibson, the guy who hosts, most of the windsurfing classes own websites and that of the IWA has just returned from the latest leg to Northern Portugal. Unfortunately he has not had time to update his website due to the demands of his many clients and because of an unfortunate accident which involved a bottle of red wine, a laptop computer and a camper van. More about that when everyone has had time to recover their sense of humour!
