'I think the windsurfing movement is growing everywhere in all the world’.

It’s hard to argue with her, either, given the quality of competition which has already graced Lake Garda through the first half of those championships.
The world’s very best young windsurfers are set to descend upon the Northern shore of Lake Garda between the 22nd and 29th of October, as the tenth annual BIC Techno293 World Championships touch down in Torbole, Italy, along with the BIC Techno293 Plus World Championships.
Billy Besson and Marie Riou eventually managed to finish 6 rounds of racing in the Nacra 17 class at the Rio Olympic Games, despite Billy's injury.

He was particularly handicapped in the heavier winds (where he's normally unbeatable), but still managed 1st, 1st and 3rd place finishes on the day when the wind was lighter and more stable. Big up to both of them for their determination and tenacity in the face of such adversity!Learn more
