Windsurfing Euro-Cup Oeiras from August 25th to 28th in Oeiras, Lisbon

Oeiras, August 28th 2005. Also on the final day the wind played the game at
the Windsurfing Euro-Cup Oeiras. So it was possible to run two more races
before the deadline of the last possible start forced race director Claudio
Alessandrello to put an end to the competition. The South American riders
showed the best performance on the final day with one bullet for the
Brazilian Wilhelm Schurmann (BRA-999, Starboard, Neil Pryde) and another one
for Gonzalo Costa Hoevel (ARG-3, F2, Neil Pryde) from Argentina. But the
overall triumph went to the “Racing Dominator” Wojtek Brzozowski (POL-10,
Starboard, Neil Pryde) from Poland.

In the first race Wilhelm Schurmann was able to achieve his first top
position in the regatta. Wojtek confirmed his ambitions to win the regatta
with a second place in front of Devon Boulon (ISV-1, F2, Windwing) from the
Virgin Islands. The Italion Champion Andrea Cucchi (ITA-1, Starboard, Neil
Pryde) scored a solid fourth place in front of Fernando Martinez (ESP-71,
Starboard, Severne) from Spain and the German hotshot Vincent Langer
(GER-122, Starboard, Simmer). Bad luck for Gonzalo Costa Hoevel: His sail
was damaged so that he was not able to finish this race. But Joao Santos
(POR-8, Starboard, Neil Pryde) from Portugal offered him his sail. With
approval of the protest committee Gonzalo was allowed to use this sail in
the final race.

And the Argentinean definitely took the chance. He won the the final race of
the Euro-Cup Oeiras in front of the double World Champion Micah Buzianis
(USA-34, F2, North Sails). The third place went to Andrea Cucchi with
Michael Polanowski (POL-16, Starboard, Severne) and Davide Beverino (ITA-3,
Starboard, Neil Pryde) on his heals.

After four days of competition the racers have sailed not less then 10 races
which gives them two discards. With four first places an a total of 14,8
points Wojtek Brzozowski is the clear winner of the Windsurfing Euro-Cup
Oeiras. With also four victories but three points behing follows Gonzalo
Costa Hoevel from Argentina (17,8 points). The third position on the podium
went to Devon Boulon. He presented a very solid performance with 29,0
points. After the top three we can find a head to head fight for the fourth
place between “Danish Dynamite” Jesper Vesterström (DEN-111, Starboard, Neil
Pryde) and the “Italian Stallion” Andrea Cucchi. Both racer have 39,7 points
but in the tie break Jesper is able to slip in front as he has the better
discards then the Italian. Vincent Langer from Germany is the best Youth
competitor with 94 points on position 13.
