Day 3 – 24.04.2021
It was a sunny day without wind. Perfect conditions for the tow-in competition. 17 year old Lennart Neubauer from Naxos, Greece won the tow-in final with a perfect Air Skopu and the score of 7,97 points. Kiri Thode from Bonaire landed a Skopu, earned 7,5 points and made it in second place. French freestyler Adrien Bosson showed a perfect Air Burner 360°, received 7,03 points from the judges and completed the podium in third place. The wind forecast looks promising for the final day. Let’s see if the single elimination will be completed and the EFPT can crown a winner in the windsurfing competition, too.

Day 2 – 23.04.2021
It was an early start on day 2. At 6:45 the Covid testing for riders/crew started. But unfortunately the early start has not really helped to recommence the competition.
After a lot of waiting and many attempted heats, 2 heats got completed in the afternoon. We saw a lot of pumping and resails. Felix Volkhardt, Dieter van der Eyken, Sam Esteve and Marco Vinante advanced into the next round. Heat 5a+5b (Schmidt vs Cooke & Marconi vs Kort)got attempted 10 times for example. And still no result until now. In between the riders showed nice moves in the stronger gusts, like Culos, Burners, Shaka 720°, Bobs, Switch Chachos, etc.
At 17:30 race director Danny Kater called it a day.
