RS:Convertible crowns its first world champions

Thomas Goyard and Maelle Guilbaud have been crowned the first ever RS:X Convertible world champions at Praia da Vitoria, in the Terceira island, Azores.

Twenty-five male and female athletes gathered in the Portuguese Atlantic archipelago for the inaugural foil windsurfing world championships, in an official class sanctioned by World Sailing.

The French armada was able to grab two gold medals, but not all the medals at stake. Sebastian Kornum in the Men’s fleet, and Marina Alabau and Emily Hall made sure there we more national flags in the podium.
