Albeau is FW World champion
3 December 2007
and so the 2007 championship comes to an end .
We had good wind everyday and were able to keep exactly to the planned schedule for races.
A different couse everyday; 5 courses to test the all round ability of this formula fleet from 17 countries, representing 4 continents.
Races were held in winds ranging from 10 to 25 knots.
The average length of races for the winner was 15 mins .
Every finish just off the pier - which presented a perfect vantage point for spectators and media.
I am talking with the organisers about a future Grand Prix tour - for sure formula is growing here in South America with fleets in Brasil, Argentina, Chile and Columbia.
Congratulations to Antoine Albeau on his second formula world title- a very worthy champion .
