A successful year for Rookie Class

The concept of the Rookie Class has been to get more young riders into the sport of windsurfing in a great environment surrounded by great teachers. For windsurfers under 18 years only, Rookie Class is purely built around developing the next generation with a program on every weekend throughout the whole summer season. On this particular weekend, the “Rookie Cup” was held; a fun event format that integrates several disciplines.

16 youngers took part of this day which started with three slalom eliminations. After lunch, the format was changed and two freestyle eliminations were completed. With a light breeze of just about ten knots, the old school tricks were pulled out of the bag. Everything counted towards a final score. After a fun day on the water, the freestyle and slalom points were put together and four winners emerged; Tom(freestyle), Miguel(slalom), an overall winner Tom and a “Rookie of the day” Noria. At the end of the day, however, everyone is a winner at the Rookie Class which has produced plenty of top talent over the years.
