The Dominican National Championships were held in early March on Cabarete Bay. An amazing weekend with wind all 3 days. On Saturday especially, the wind picked up just after noon to 25 knots gusting to over 30 knots. View an example graph of Cabarete wind. It was a spectacular show for the double eliminations of the Pro and Junior events.
The Pros was won by Alex Soto. The Juniors was won by Francis Yem (pictured – far left). The Women was won by Katie Bowcutt. The Masters was won by Darron Smith.
