4.8.2016 | Day 4
It was a windy start with solid waves. The plan is to continue at least to the heat 33 of women and men in the double elimination. 2 waves and 2 jumps counting, with 16 minutes long heats. Unfortunately the wind dropped around 14.30, when the tide came up.
11.30 – 12.30 Youth competition started
12.50 Ladies double elimination will be continued with heat 29b, Lina Erpenstein vs Greta Benvenuti, Lina advanced into the next round. Robby Swift defeats fellow country man Adam Lewis in a hard battle. Dany Bruch advances over Ricardo Campello. Philip Köster stopped Dieter van der Eyken with an incredible high score of 34.75 points out of 40. Jaeger Stone defeated Aleix Sanllehy with a great score of 32.51 points.
Amanda Beenen wins over Alice Arutkin.
14.43 – competition is on hold due to the light wind and high tide
15.20 – restart of the double elimination, Erpenstein advances over Bandini
Philip Köster wins over Jaeger Stone with a new high score of the day, 35.08 points. It was an incredible show! Perfect stalled Doubles, textbook frontside wave 360s and clean Takas made the difference. Jaeger went big, landed good Double Forwards, too, but was missing 4.84 points.
Amanda Beenen defeated 19 year old Lina Erpenstein.
Philip Köster defeated Robby Swift with a new high score of 37.38 points. Robby had a great heat, too and earned 34.0 points. Both showed Push Loop Forwards.
Sarah-Quita Offringa defeats Amanda Beenen by almost 8 points. Philip Köster advances over Thomas Traversa with another high score of 33.26 points.
17.46 – 18.40: Philip, who was on great form on day 4, continued his run and won over local Alex Mussolini, but then lost to Victor Fernandez, who will sail in he men’s final against event leader Marcilio Browne. Philip suffered cramps during the heat against Victor and his heat score was far from what he had in all other 5 heats, what was a competition time of 80 minutes already. Victor collected a lot of points (33.01) against Philip and won by 9 points difference. In the ladies fleet Daida Ruano Moreno had a good comeback and defeated Sarah-Quita Offringa and Steffi Wahl. She will face her twin sister Iballa in the final during the next days.

Conditions are looking good. Solid wind and decent waves from time to time allows the PWA to run the double elimination of the men. 9 men heats got completed. Have a look on the ladder below, who are the remaining top 12 men in the double. Dieter van der Eyken was the sensation of day 3 winning three heats in a row against Morgan Noireaux, Moritz Mauch and Jules Denel. He now will face three times World Champion and team mate Philip Köster. Spaniard Aleix Sanllehy won two heats and climbed up the ladder. A great comeback after a disappointing result in Gran Canaria in July. He will have Jaeger Stone in his next heat. Local and event co-organizer Dany Bruch defeated German Leon Jamaer in a really tight heat. Dany will sail against a “hungry” Ricardo Campello. Adam Lewis, as well a Cabezo local, sailed very strong and won against Ben Proffitt and Josep Pons making it into the top 12 riders. He will have Robby Swift in his next heat. In total 11 or 12 heats need to be sailed to complete the double elimination of the men.
In the ladies double elimination 6 heats got completed. French Alice Arutkin had a great day. She showed excellent wave sailing and defeated Birgit Rieger, Arrianne Aukes and Caterina Stenta. She is back in the game for a top result at Cabezo. Young Italian Nicole Bandini as well won three heats in a row against Alexa Escherich, Serena Zoia and Justyna Sniady. We would say it’s her competition highlight. If you don’t know much about her, read our latest interview here. Amanda Beenen as well advanced to the top 8 sailors in the double.
