The island's own Demita Vega De Lille won the main women's event at the North American Windsurfing Championships in Cozumel, last weekend.

Drawing on her local knowledge, De Lille delivered another strong performance to help her on the way to qualification for the London 2012 Olympics.

Fellow Mexican, David Mier y Teran, made the most of Cozumel's unique conditions to take first place in the main men's event.

Mier y Teran enjoyed the great wind and current conditions, which he said had made for an even more exciting competition.

In total, 75 windsurfers from 10 countries around North and South America and the Caribbean competed in the event, held off the island's north-west shore.
