Hong Kong's windsurfing team, on a two-week training stint in Europe, have changed their training schedule to get used to new equipment. Hong Kong coach Rene Appel said the team were having some problems with the '2000 design' equipment which they were trying to solve before the SPA regatta in Medemblik (the Netherlands) at the end of the week. 'Because it's state-of-the-art equipment, it will take a couple of weeks before our sailors get used to it.' Appel said the team had begun training at the SPA Regatta site instead of driving to Brest, France, the World Championship site. 'The weather so far has been beautiful - sunny, with high temperatures, and a breeze. 'This unfortunately, is forecast to change, and we'll be pulling out the thermal clothing soon if the weatherman is right,' he said. Windsurfing queen Lee Lai- shan had some good performances in her build-up towards SPA by finishing fourth overall in a competition in Medemblik, while Sam Wong Tak-sum finished sixth. Ho Chi-ho was eighth while Lai Hon-sang was 12th and Cheng Hing-lun 16th. Heavyweights Tan Luen-chun and Duncan Lai Tang-kan were 18th and 19th respectively. 'Most of the athletes have made good progress although it's early to say whether this will show in results in the SPA regatta.'
