A night time of travel back to the Philippines gave me time to fully digest Round 1.  Unfortunately I missed the closing party celebrations as had to leave the event site at 9pm to make it in time for a midnight flight back to Manila. So this time a much clearer view of the event from start to finish!

The final day of competition was for sure the most spectacular. Lighter winds really changed the rankings and we witnessed something rarely down in sporting competitions.

Lisa Vinogradova really showed people what she is capable of by not only winning all the Womens races, but also finishing 1st over all in one of the races, beating all the boys! I personally thought it was great! I think a few of the male competitors were a little put out, their problem to be honest and maybe if the didn’t like it they just need to speed up!

So two new world leaders in Twin Tip racing, Lisa and Doque.  And of course the formula winners, kathrin and Yo, well done!

Thailand all in all was such a fun chilled event, we got to do some incredible things in-between all the racing. And even the racing turned out to be a lot more successful than anyone thought.

Well done to all, see everyone in Bintan, and of course Merry Christmas!
