Two more races completed in SPO, not suitable for freestyle

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Unfortunately the wind was not favorable for the freestylers today therefore race director Olaf Van Tol announced that he would run races for as long as the wind cooperates.

The weather here in St Peter-Ording today was simply outstanding. Clear, sunny blue skies and record warm temperatures hovered the beach while vacationers, locals as well as crew enjoyed the sunshine. A total of two races were completed today before the wind completely diminished.

It was a winning day for French rider Bruno Sroka (Cabrinha, FRA) who won the first as well as the second race today. Rolf Van Der Vlugt (Airush, NED) finished second both races followed by Julien Kerneur (Takoon, FRA) who finished third in both races today.

In the women’s racing division, Steph Bridge (North, GBR) finished first in the first race of the day, followed by Caroline Adrien (Cabrinha, FRA) in second and Kristen Boese (Best, GER) in third. In the second race of the day, Katja Roose (Airush, NED) finished first while Caroline Adrien (Cabrinha, FRA) remains in the second position and Kristen Boese (Best, GER) takes third place. Steph Bridge (North, GBR) crossed the start line too soon which enables her any points for the second race of the day.

At 3:00pm Van Tol dismissed all the riders for the day due to the non-existent wind. A meeting between the riders and PKRA judging crew was held this afternoon to discuss judging criteria. Riders had the perfect opportunity to challenge questions of concern as well as debate over previous issues in regards to the judging aspect of competitions.

Organizers made it possible for riders to have a little fun wakeboarding.

Tomorrow’s mandatory skippers’ meeting is scheduled for 11:00am.
