Day 3. No fear ! Wind peaked up and swell too. Even the youngest kids raced without fear in these hard conditions and had fun with long surfs full speed on the waves.  Italian riders are still leading the race in the U 16, Australia, Japan and Poland are battling in the U13 and Paula from Spain is far ahead in the new U19 category.

Battles on the water and great atmosphere after the race and during the dinner on a 4 masts clipper!

Today 26 th is the last race day and media day. Kids are racing right in front of the beach and the video images of the race are projected on a huge cubic screen. Wind is very low, but show in going on !

Day 1-2

- Beautiful sunshine, warm temperatures and wind of around 20 knots left nothing to be desired for the 2014 World O'pen Cup, but with 2 meters swell outside, these are tough conditions for young guns !
