  • Sarah Herbert, Armenia, ARM1
    Windsurfing in the formula and slalom disciplines for six years, Herbert switched to the Olympic class RS:X just fifteen days ago to compete at this event. She hopes to qualify Armenia for a place in the Olympic games later this year. She is the only one representing Armenia ta this event.
  • Richard White, Ireland, IRL 309
