Last day of the World Championships in Argentina was quite stressful, but not because of my race …. The rate of women’s situation was clear after yesterday’s date. We had only to sail in a race that did not get the DND, which you can not discarded from overall results. I won a third consecutive title of World Champion! I am very happy!!! Stress on the last day redirects to race of my brother, who was fighting for a bronze medal …Nervous ending was it in the male fleet. Gold and silver were certain yesterday was 2010 World Champion Antoine Albeau and second place for the Brazilian Paulo de Reis. The most exciting was battle for the bronze medal, went on the Pawel Hlavaty, Ross Williams, which differed only one point behind them was Casper Bouman and Steve Allen, the difference between 5 and 6 points. I was thinking that I’m often more nervous when my brotheris racing than me. After a fierce fight on the water games in the men’s fleet completed as follows:
1. Anotine Albeau
2. Paulo Dos Reis
3. Ross Williams
4. Casper Bouman
5. Paul Hlavaty
6. Steve Allen
7. Przemek Miarczyński
11. Wojtek Brzozowski
Silver was taken by Morane Demont Martiniqui referring to the colors of France, I have to admit that a very young 16 year old Moranre did really well on the water, and I had a great sailing with her in Mendoza! The third placerun to Farrah Hall, racing mostly in the Olympic RSX class.
I managed to win the World Championship in Formula Windsurfing third time I raw. I want to thank a lot my sponsors Starboard, MauiSails, Sieplywa.pl, EnergySports and the Polish Yachting Association for great support! We Missed this year, some good athletes at the start, but I hope that in coming years, more girls will get in the Formula Windsurfing class and we will be more in the women’s fleet. Maybe more girls from RSX will motivate to that part of windsurfing, would be cheerfully. I encourage all the girls, it’s really fun and interesting part of windsurfing.

This report is quite stripped down, but for us it was a really long day … pretty tight race, packaging equipment, arranging transfers to the airport, complete, and the time and still need to eat … to finally go to the party;) to celebrate with all the rest players this week of great racing.
I must admit that after a long break (7 weeks in a cast), it’s hard for me to describe how wonderful is to return to sailing and competing especially in such a beautiful place, spending time with great people.
Day after tomorrow we go back home. I’ll write more impresion from the competition when I’ll get home, when it will be a little bit more quite, than I promise to put more photos cause I have a lot of nice pics from here, but we have really slow internet.
Cheers, Marta Hlavaty
