Alessandro Alberti was 7th in the first race and third in the second, he continues to be the strongest of the Italians. He said “ At the moment i’m feeling really fit, in the past few months i’ve been dividing myself between work and races, now i’m only thinking about windsurfing and the results are already begining to show”. Federico Esposito got 7th place followed by Marco Casagrande, Paco Wirz goes back into lead the classification which could be valid for the assignment of the European Masters Title.
With 13th and 10th place today, Wirz from the Lauria Club took advantage of the not so lucky day of Paul Leoni, slipping through to 2nd place infront of Asia from France in 3rd place.
