From 11 a.m., 154 competitors from 20 countries went out to the sea. Winds from the northeast with an average speed between 10 to 15 knots prevailed throughout the journey.

On two race areas of approximately 12 kilometers, two regattas were raced, marking the beginning of the competitions of the Youth & Children World Championship of Windsurf Mistral 2003.

The night prior, the Governor of the state of Yucatan, Patricio Patron Laviada inaugurated the competitions and welcomed every competitor and trainer.

The numerous assistance from relatives of the competitors, gave a good ambiance to the event, while the participating countries paraded.

In his own words, the governor of Yucatan talked about the tragic visit of the hurricane Isidore months ago over Telchac - the host seatown of the event - and about the catastrophic damage that the storm left behind.
