Irish Windsurfer 13th in PWA Cold Hawaii World Championships

#windsurfing – Irish windsurfer Mikey Clancy IR253 has finished in 13th position in the KIA PWA Cold Hawaii World Championships in Klitmoller Denmark. In brutal onshore conditions Mikey achieved his highest ranking in a PWA Competition and the highest ever ranking by an Irish windsurfer in the wave discipline.

Clancy who has been a professional windsurfer for the last four years has recovered from a serious ankle injury competed in two rounds of the Professional Windsurfing Association World Tour over the last three weeks in Klitmoller Denmark and the grand final event in Sylt Germany last week.

The D.I.T. Marketing student trains mainly at Dollymount beach in Dublin and on the West Coast of Ireland. Clancy hopes to break into the worlds top 10 over the coming seasons and seeks a major sponsor to help him achieve this goal.
