Dutch windsurfers secure gold at 2019 RS:X European Championships

The 2019 RS:X Windsurfing European and Youth European Championships & Open Trophy closed with four scintillating medal races held in near perfect conditions in Mallorca, Spain.
For the 333 competitors coming from 41 different nations and covering six continents taking part in the final race of the event, it was a short postponement ashore before a perfect 12-15 knots filled in for the medal races.
As the breeze built, the race officers decided to use the reaching start courses which allowed the competitors to blast off the start to the first mark – a spectacular sight to watch as the top ten sailors hit the line at full planing speed.
