Zara Davis achieves No1 ranking position in Womens Speed
The UK's queen of speed has now taken the top spot on the official International Speed Windsurfing Class ranking. Zara who only started speedsailing in 2005 has slowly clawed her way up the ranking list by consistent performances at international events like the European Championships last year in Ireland.
It is a bitter sweet victory though as the upcoming World Championships at the legendary site of Sotovento has been cancelled due to the recession. Zara said "It's great to be ranked No 1 in the world but it's the world championships I was looking forward to. It attracts all the top girls and it would have been great to achieve the World title on a level playing field."
