PWA Catalunya World Cup… the end!


Sopresona… una tappa slalom senza che a vincere sia il solito Antoine Albeau! A dire il vero Dunki ha vinto, ma non è che sia stata un tappa baciata dal vento, anche l’ultimo giorno si è provato a mettere giù il campo di regata , ma il vento è sempre rimasto leggero. Finalmente però qualcosa di nuovo  (si fa per dire visto che Terminator è sulla breccia da almeno 25 anni…) nello slalom.
Ecco le prime parole dei due vincitori…
Bjorn Dunkerbeck: “In Costa Brava the most important thing is to win the first race because that’s often all we get here. Last year we only did one and a quarter races, this year we got a little bit further but not much. It’s always more fun winning when we’ve completed ten races during the week, but it’s a great step for Severne sails. It’s not such a big step for me, although it’s been a while since I last won a competition, which was Sylt in 2008. However, I really feel it’s a step in the right direction for Starboard and Severne because all of our hard work has paid off with my second in Korea, and first here in Costa Brava. The next one in Fuerteventura is going to be a better one for me because there’s always more wind there than at the last two events of the season. Also, our smaller sails are working really well too so it’ll be exciting racing.”
Karin Jaggi: “I’m stoked to have won my second event in a row. It actually feels even better to win here in Costa Brava because Valerie was racing as well, and we had a big fleet with twenty-one women racing which is great for the sport. I had a slight issue in the first race final because I went out on gear that was too big. But, the final of race 2 was really good fun because we had some big swell which made a change to the flat water we’ve been sailing in for the last few years. This win is also great for me because it’s the first time I’ve beaten Valerie in over a year.”
