With 10 races completed the 2013 RS:X Asian Championships has concluded on Sunday with gold and silver in each classification won by Hong Kong.
Although the top 3 sailors in each division kept their positions from the penultimate day, the last 2 races were not easy for neither of them. Top two men, youth men and youth women came to the final races with equal points, knowing that their victory will fully depend on avoiding any mistakes and winning over their rivals. In the battle victorious came the top ranking sailors Cheng Chun Leung Micheal (HKG 16) in men, Kikabhoy Rafeek (HKG 20) in youth men and Ngai Wai Yan (HKG 30) in youth women, who kept their leader positions and won the 2013 RS:X Champion titles.
The second and third place took respectively in men division Leung Ho Tsun Andy (HKG 2) and Wonwoo Cho (KOR 141), in youth men Ng Ho Yin (HKG 22) and Phattharadanai Jinain (THA 27) and in youth women Ma Kwan Ching (HKG 3) and Sabin Chun (KOR 207).
In women Chan Hei Man Hayley Victoria (HKG 5) entered the final races with an advantage of 6 points, and by adding another two bullets she won Championships in a grate style collecting only 12 points. In the second place finished Lo Sin Lam Sonia (HKG 28) who didn't give away the position form the beginning of the event. Victorious in the women classification became also Megumi Komine (JPN 72) who started the regatta in 8th position after the 1st day, and climbed to the podium 3rd place in the end.
The congratulations should go to the Windsurfing Association of Hong Kong not only for winning in all RS:X classifications but also for staging a remarkable and successful multi-classes windsurfing event.
