1 AV 2

With a promising outlook the world’s fastest fleet of female windsurfers were at the beach early preparing their gear for a day of tough racing. However, the wind refused to play ball, forcing the fleet to endure another lengthy period on hold, at times sitting in their wetsuits ready to hit the water at a moment’s notice.


Race director, Juan Antonio Aragon and his team made every effort to get the elite racers out on the water with a course set as soon as the flags showed any sign of wind in them, but it was just too gusty to allow for fair racing, and therefore had to be cancelled early in the evening.

Tomorrow is certain to be a historical day on this world-class beach with Valerie Arrighetti (Tabou, Loft, Mystic) just 24 hours away from claiming her second event crown for the year at the first ever all-women’s PWA event. And, Karin Jaggi (Patrik, Severne) only a day away from taking home the 2010 world title which she’s already secured.
