The Fuerte Wave Classic 2011 is over. The event saw no result and no winners, because there were no official heat sailed while the 10 days of competition. The reason for this was the wind, which did not blow strong enough for he most of the time. The event saw massive waves, double masthigh at Puertito or even higher, but the strongest average wind wer 15 knots probably and most of the time 10 to 12 knots.
Although the conditions were on the limit, most of the competitors made the best out of it. We would like to report about some highlights.
Yannick Anton (29): Yannick lives on the island, has a lot of experience in competition and proofed, that he has no fear. He took a lot of risk at Puertito, sailed deep down to the bottom of the wave and carved perfcet turns into over double mast high waves. He also scored big at Entubadera and impressed us a lot. He is an extraordinary great sailor and was the first one, who landed a double forward while an indoor event at the boat show 2006.
