Ivan Pastor Lafuente claims the European and Masters titles in Hondarribia, Spain

Ivan dominated the event with a perfect result of 7 race wins, which is an impressive achievement. This time around he was on top also in the rivalry with Curro Manchon, who finished second overall. Jorge Maciel Andrés finished the championship on the 3rd podium place.
Another Manchon, who is always doing well is Blanca. Blanca was 8th overall and top placed out of the ladies, she clearly enjoyed the Raceboard racing during the week in Hondaribia and said - “It is always a pleasure for me to come here and compete with this fleet. I enjoy a lot competing with the Raceboard fleet and my family. I like it because the pressure is not that hard, you can enjoy windsurfing more. It is good to be here and compete against the boys… I hope that more girls will come, and we can enjoy with the girls also.”    

Coming from the USA it was Gonzalo Giribet, who made the furthest trip this time around and he definitely did not regret it - “I’ve been racing since I was a teenager and I love this event especially the Masters Worlds, so whenever I can find time between my work I try to come. I just love to come and see my friends. The competition edge is something that is in our genes. I always like to race against someone, and as you know it is very friendly, we never argue, we never protest, but you always want to win against your friends.”
