World Championship 2012
The 51st Vaurien World Championship was held in Dournanez in France from July 14 - July 21.
With an almost flawless performance, the 2012 title goes to last year's runners up, Jaime and Alfonso Leiros from Spain, followed by the Dutch strong wind specialists Roelof and Jelmer Kuipers, with long-time Vaurienists Javier Serano and Rosa Foruria (ESP) bringing up the third.
The overall results can be found here.
Again, many pictures were taken by Jaap Röfekamp, who is turning into something like an official photographer.
Thanks to AS Vaurien France for the organization, and see you next year in Sanxenxo, Spain.
