The RS:X World Championships were a blast...After what was one of the windiest world championships on record, it's time to take stock.Racing was only possible on 4 of the scheduled seven days with no medal racing for the second time this year. Who would have thought beforehand that we would wake up each morning praying for 15 knots LESS wind...It happens once in a career and no doubt will be remembered by the ones who were there as a high point in their racing lives. Stories will be told about the battle to win in nuking winds where top sailors were taking unscheduled trips over the handle bars... about the $1000 winner-takes-all speed session where Dorian van Rijsselberge [NED] topped 31.86 knots and Hanna Zembrzuska [POL] just failed to make 26 posting, 25.92 knots. All on standard RS:X equipment.... About how Julien Bontemps [FRA] took gold by 2 points from Nick Dempsey [GBR]... About how just one point covered the next three places with JP Tobin [NZL] shading it to take bronze from Dorian van Rijsselberge [NED] and Byron Kokalanis [GRE].... About how Lee Korzits [ISR] became a double world champion by beating her sister from another mother Zofia Klepacka [POL] who took silver for the second time in 3 months. Will they repeat this at the Olympic Games or will Zofia be third time lucky?... And how for the first time in Olympic windsurfing history, the top 10 men and top 10 women won a share of the US $45,000 prize money generously put up by Neil Pryde himself for which everyone who is a part of the RS:X Class is eternally grateful...
