Windsurfing Euro-Cup Oeiras

August 25th to 28th in Oeiras, Lisbon

Wojtek Brzozowski takes the lead

Oeiras, August 25th 2005. The beautiful town of Oeiras welcomed the Worlds
best windsurfers with perfect weather. On the inscription day the wind was
howling with almost 30 knots but on the opening day of the EC we had between
10 to 15 knots. Unfortunately the wind was gusty and shifty and the
competitors were partly a little bit over enthusiastic. So at the end of the
first day race the race committee had achieved six starts but only one valid
result. Wojtek Brzozowski (POL-10, Starboard, Neil Pryde) from Poland was
the men of the day and won the race in front of the double World Champion
Micah Buzianis (USA-34, F2, North Sails) and Gonzalo Costa Hoevel (ARG-3,
F2, Neil Pryde).

Wojtek had a decent start heading in the direction of the beach and with
perfect tactics he managed to reach the upwind mark in the first position
just in front of Fernando Martinez (ESP-71, Starboard, Severne) from Spain.
Micah Buzianis and Gonzalo Costa Hoevel fought their way through the pack
and managed to pass Fernando in the second lap. But Wojtek controlled his
opponents and managed to win the first race of the Euro-Cup Portimao.

After the first day of the Windsurfing Euro-Cup Portimao Wojtek Brozowski is
leading in front of Micah Buzianis and Gonzalo Costa Hoevel. Devon Boulon
(ISV-1, F2, Windwing) and Alberto Menegatti (ITA-456, F2, Gaastra) complete
the top five. On the following positions we find Fernando Martinez, Hubert
Mokrzycki, Wilhelm Schurmann, Jesper Vesterstrom and Vincent Langer

For tomorrow the Skippers Meeting is set for 12:00 and the first start is
planned for tomorrow at 13:00. So get ready for more Racing action at the
Euro-Cup Silvaplana!

Wojtek Brzoowski (POL-10, Starboard, Neil Pryde): “I had a good start and
the right tactics which is very important here in Oeiras. When I was leading
at the upwind mark I controlled the fleet. I am very satisfies with the
start. But it was good to finish the competitions for today as we were all
very tired.”
