China rules the 2017 RS:X World Championships

Bing Ye has been crowned the 2017 RS:X world windsurfing champion, at Enoshima, Japan.

Forget the Polish, the Israeli, the Dutch and the Spanish. The Olympic windsurfing class is now in the hands of China, the new force to be reckoned in the RS:X world.

The Chinese sailors claimed five out of the six medals on offers at the 2017 RS:X World Championships. And they weren’t even competing in home waters.
