ISA Speesurfing Grand Prix Fuerteventura 2007 – Day 4
After three days without wind today we had 22-25 knots and almost perfect conditions on the water. Unfortunately, it was not Calima wind, but it was just sailable on an angle of app. 135 degrees. Better than nothing, but the speeds on the course would not be high.
The lead changed between Bjorn, Finian, Jose and Antoine in the beginning, but Finian had some nice runs with speeds of 37.34 knots
In the end, this was the fastest speed recorded, and he was able to hold back Antoine to second place and Jose into third. Cyril finished fourth and Bjorn fifth, but we are sure that he will strike back.
Due to the almost perfect water conditions, no crashes were recorded and everything went as it should.
The womens fleet with seven competitors was won by Karin Jaggi, who was able to defeat Zara Davis into second place. The topspeed of 33.25 knots was quite impressive so far compared to the mens fleet.
We hope to get stronger winds tomorrow, and set some serious speeds. The forecast is looking better than today so it can become interesting.
