Formula Experience Worlds, Cancun, Mexico, 26th – 31th December 2011
FE (Formula Experience) Worlds
The Formula Experience Worlds, which took place at the beautiful Cancun, Mexico, are over. 46 competitors were fighting for the 2011 title. Formula Experience is a class, which allows to race with a minimum gear of one board and one sail. It´s popular in Southern American countries like Peru, Chile or Brazil, but also in Mexico. The event saw excellent wind on the final day and Nicolas Schreier from Peru could take the lead and win the title.
“Three races on the final day, making a total of 12 races for the Championship, and Nicolas (PER-2) retains the title of Formula Experience World Champion.
25 year old Nicolas from Lima, Peru prefers windier conditions, but nailed this championship with 7 wins and finished a good 14 points ahead of his nearest rival, 46 year old grand master Luis Fernando Souza from Brazil, who had headed the leaderboard at the start of the event.
Mexican Youth, Maricio Martinez, who had also had a spell at the top, was unable to maintain his form and ended in bronze position. 16 year old Mexican Ignacio Berenguer from Cancun, winner of race 6 and with all his other counting results in the top five, finished in fourth. First lady was Demita Vega de Lille from Cozumel, Mexico, 7th overall, what´s an excellent result in between the big men dominated fleet.
A light wind event with temperatures of 24-28 ° every day, Wind Adventure Mexico and the Mexican Windsurfing Association are to be congratulated for their organisation; making sure there was plenty going on, from Stand Up Paddle Board competitions to colourful and fun beach activities. A most memorable event.” (Keith Atkinson, Formula Experience Marketing Manager)
