Today was the third day of the IFCA Slalom World Championships in Texel, Netherlands. After three more downwind slalom races, with 5 jibing marks, the German Bernd Flessner is still leading the ranking.  The onshore conditions with big chop and waves from all directions made it not easy for the riders. The race number 6 was scheduled for 11.00, but got postponed to 12.00, due to a catamaran regatta in the area. The Danish racer Kasper Larsen was the man of the day. With perfect jibes and awesome speed he was dominating the first two winnersfinals, which put himself overall directly behind the German Bernd Flessner on the second position.

The third race started with a delay, du to a broken rope of a jibing mark. This was not the only mark, which broke or drifted away because of the strong current and waves. The last race of the day was again won by the German Bernd Flessner, who maybe had an advantage being on the big board in the fading wind conditions. And Gunnar Asmussen made him a present catapulting after the second jibe in leading position.
