South American championship 2017 - Highlights

Club Nautico San Isidro hosted South American windsurfing championships 2017. Beautiful but very challenging location, venue of the 2018 Youth Olympic Games, tested all participants in variety of condition during the week and best took home the titles. For some highlight of their career, for most only another stop on their windsurfing journey.

South American championship 2017 - Day 5

Great week here in Club Nautico San Isidro and the future looks bright. Not only because of the high level of windsurfing, but mainly because "kids" of all ages have fun doing what they do. And with this philosophy they are all winners and some of them even got some trophies as a bonus.

Matheus Isaac Claims South American Championship Title
Posted On:  06/12/2017 14:52:39

The South American Championships were held on 2 - 5 December at Raia 1 in Porto Alegre Brazil. 40 competitors in several divisions were racing for the title "South American Slalom Champion".

After 4 days racing Matheus Isaac (BRA-767) claimed undefeated the highest platform on the podium. Until the last race there was a battle between Lucas Trindade (BRA-101) and Nathan Westera (ARU-8) which was won by Lucas who finished second in the final results.

With 3 youth/junior competitors in the top 10 it is good to see the youth competition is very strong in South America.

Besides the battle between the top competitors a number of personal (sportive) battles took place between the Masters and Grandmasters who were also competing for the Brazilian Slalom title. The first Master, Mathias Pinheiro (BRA-5) took the 4th place overall, followed by the father of Mateus, Carlos Isaac (BRA-768) who took the 5th place overall as the first Grandmaster.

The races where sailed in various conditions which made it possible to race only 3 valid eliminations. Heat 6 of the 4th elimination could not start before the last possible warning signal due a general recall. As the finals were not completed the 4th elimination was not valid.

For several of the Brazilian (grand)masters racing in an international event was a new experience. They had to get used to the strict program, rules and to be on time.

After the honouring of Mateus Isaac as the new South American Champion the competitors left the venue satisfied to prepare for the Championships next year.
