Today was tricky for both Formula Windsurfing competitors and officials. There was a lot of waiting for the wind to settle and build enough for the Polish Open to take place.

The beach was pretty well decked out with entertainments for any spectators in the form of a volley ball pitch, four way trampoline, skim boarding run and a music stage along with a few other promotional tents.

The kitesurfing raceboards are something I have not seen before. Super wide with multiple big fins.

We did have the kite surfing racing to enjoy initially once the breeze did start to fill in. Included also was the spectacle of one guy who was out there with a camera shooting from a motorised parachute, very impressive.
