Heat board double elimination Sylt 2016 after day 7
5.10.2016 | Day 6
Slalom starts at 11:00. Two Slalom eliminations got completed. Italian Matteo Iachino was dominating all eliminations and is in the lead. He has the lowest possible score points at the moment. Julien Quentel is in second and Ross Williams in third. And there are currently ranked a few new faces in the top 10: Bruno Martini, Marco Lang, Vincent Langer and Ingmar Daldorf. The younger generation is pushing hard! Antoine Albeau is ranked 19th, but we are sure to see more elimination which will bring discards.

The Foil racing saw 4 races in gusty light wind conditions. Sebastian Kornum, Antoine Albeau, Gonzalo Costa Hoevel, Mateus Isaac and Maciek Rutkowski are the top foil riders at the moment. Antoine Albeau, who as training this new discipline over the last winter, won two of the four races. Sebastian Kornum and Gonzalo Costa Hoevel won respectively one race. It looks like Foil racing is a good option for light and gusty wind conditions. The PWA plans to organize competitions at selected venues in 2017 and for 2018 an own tour is in the planing.

The double elimination got started around 3.30 pm and the PWA managed to complete 8 heats. There is a good chance to get suitable freestyle conditions on Thursday and to complete the double elimination. 3 hours of suitable wind conditions would be needed to complete the remaining 17 or 18 heats.
2.10.2016 | Day 3
Very light wind during the whole day and just surfing and SUP action at the Brandenburger beach. Not even enough wind to run any foil races. Robby Naish gave an interview and spoke about the typical onshore Sylt conditions, the great surf after the storm, about the unbelievable development in the freestyle discipline, his actual status quo after his heavy injury 5 months ago, his thoughts on foil windsurfing and why nothing can beat a wave windsurfing day at Ho’okipa. You can watch the interview in the live stream of day 3 (from 20:10 – 32:20).
Day 4 will see some north easterly wind and there will be a realistic chance to start the freestyle single elimination. Skippers meeting is scheduled for 8.00 am.
1.10.2016 | Day 2
No wind, rain and good surf in the morning. In the afternoon the PWA started the first ever Foil Slalom Windsurfing exhibition/test race and Alexandre Cousin won the race ahead of his French colleague William Huppert and Polish racer Maciek Rutkowski. The wind was around 5 – 6 knots on the race course and there was still some swell and a nasty beach break.
30.9.2016 | Day 1
At around 11 o’clock the qualifying started and the following wave riders made it into the main wave event: Maciek Rutkowski, Gustav Haggstrom, Julien Quentel and Martin ten Hoeve won the repechage heat and made it into the main event, too.
