Wild winds are sure to be on the agenda at Pozo…

The PWA world tour will soon be returning to wind swept beaches Gran

Canaria for one of the biggest events of the season. Commencing on the 9th

of July all the big guns from both the men¹s and women¹s fleets will

be

gathering at the legendary venueSPozo Izquierdo, ready to do battle. Wild

winds are sure to be on the agenda and when it is blowing 35-40 knots you

can be sure to expect nothing less than balls to the wall action from the

best sailors on the planet.

Pozo hero Bjorn Dunkerbeck (Proof, Neil Pryde), who won the men¹s wave

discipline in Pozo last year will be there to defend his title. Dunkerbeck

took his victory after narrowly defeating Norwegian jumping specialist

Vidar Jensen (Drops, North) in what will be remembered as one of the all

time dramatic PWA finals.

French windsurfing machine Antoine Albeau (AHD, Neil Pryde) will also be

back in the Canaries ready to defend his Overall Freestyle Crown. The big

man who hails from La Rochelle on the west cost of France took the title

after winning in Pozo and then placing fifth in the Fuerteventura

freestyle Grand Prix.

The infamous Moreno Twins (Mistral, North) who both live in Pozo are both

likely to feature on the podium of the women¹s competitions. They will

face challenges from a tough fleet, which includes the likes of Karin

Jaggi (F2, Arrows), Anne Marie Reichman (Naish Boards, Naish Sails) and

Colette Guadagnino (JP, Neil Pryde).

Whatever happens you can be assured the action will be second to none and

as the drama of the PWA world tour unfolds sailors will be fighting tooth

and nail for both valuable ranking points and the 130,000 Euro prize fund

up for grabs!
