This year’s Highland Spring HIHO event offered great racing & adventure as they charted a course through the British Virgin Islands in Windsurf and SUP classes.
Over 50-racers completed a total of 13 races in 5-days, plus everyone enjoyed a race aboard The Moorings catamaran fleet from Anegada to The Baths, Virgin Gorda. A fun race for the yacht captains was featured on the last afternoon of the event too. The highlight was the Pirate party in which Brazilian Alo took the honors with ease as he had the ultimate pirate outfit.
This year the winds were strong and even the top guys were on smaller sails than previous years.
Following 5-inter-island competitions defending champion Wilhelm Schurmann from Brazil had aced the windsurfing class followed by Andrea Colombo from Switzerland in second and his son Elia Colombo in Third.
Wilhelm had this to say about the event “It was my third year at the Highland Spring HIHO and I had a blast, we had a great Brazilian group this year with lots of friends and the conditions were more challenging than previous years with strong winds and some nice waves”.
