|David Garrel wins in Grussian|
|Wednesday, 11 April 2012|
Belgian Speed week sponsored by Fanatic, North and Sonntag has finished. It is also the first event of the ISWC European Championship tour 2012. The event is held in Grussian south of France which has a reputation for beautiful beaches and strong Tramontana winds this time of year is a fantastic opener for the tour.
. David Garrel (LUX) wins for the 2nd year running in Grussian.
David the current ISWC European speed windsurfing champion. Stamped his authority on this event and is clearly setting out to take the title fora second year.
Today was the first day of the first competition day of the Belgian Speed week. In the morning the wind was between 12 and 14 knots. It was clearly not enough for the competition so the organisers opened a fun race for the riders to practice from 11 until 16 o'clock.
Unfortunately around 13 o'clock the wind died completely and all the riders came of the water.
Day Two It was a day like it should be every day. Sunny, windy (22-27 knots) and a group of motivated speed sailors.
