We are please to announce that we have secured a prize money sponsor for the 2012 RS:X World Championships in Cadiz, Spain. Anyone who qualifies to race in the medal races will win a share of the prize fund which will be split equally between the men's and women's fleets.
"This is something we have been working towards steadily" said Rory Ramsden, COO of the RS:X Class Association " All the work we have invested in our online media project is beginning to pay dividends. Our aim is to move into the next quadrennial with a 4 year prize money deal covering the RS:X World Championships and possibly the RS:X European Championships too"
Prize money will certainly spice up medal day by increasing the pressure and the drama for everyone.
This is the first time that such a large cash prize has been put up for grabs by the Olympic Windsurfing Class. It's great news for the sailors
