Shahar Zubari won the Israel windsurfing championships on Sunday in Eilat, while Naomi Cohen claimed the women’s title. With main-contender Nimrod Mashiah pulling out on Saturday, Zubari had all but secured the title entering Sunday’s final day of competition.

Only one race was ultimately held due to weak winds, which Zubari ended in fourth place. “It is always great to win the national championships, especially at home,” said Zubari. Cohen ensured Eilat windsurfers won both titles, edging Hadar Heller by a single point.
