IFCA WORLDS - Hyeres - Day two
... a few photos from yesterday
Here's a quick update after the first day of races on the IFCA world Championships here in Hyeres-France. In gusty but windy offshore conditions up till 35 knots it was Kevin Pritchard (US-3) who managed to win both slalom races held yesterday afternoon in a close battle with Frenchmen Antoine Albeau's (F-192). Wojtek Brzozowski (POL-10) secured his third place in both races... Today the wind is not really the way it was yesterday so it looks like were on a hold for the moment. I'll keep everybody informed and try to send some pics and video's asap
