Matteo Iachino al vertice della classifica PWA Slalom, Offringa inarrestabile

0

Hvide Sande PWA World Cup, termina oggi il quarto evento stagionale del World Tour Slalom in Danimarca. Sui 6 giorni previsti per la gara sono stati solamente portati a termine due tabelloni per gli uomini e per le donne. Matteo Iachino grazie al secondo tabellone si porta al comando della classifica di tappa e anche al comando della classifica generale PWA Slalom 2016. Mancano ancora due gare, una in Germania a Sylt e l’altra in Francia a La Torche. Dietro di lui ma a pari punti nel overall ranking troviamo Pierre Mortefon. Matteo grazie ai primi due posti ottenuti in Korea e in Danimarca e allo scarto dopo la terza prova (il settimo posto in Costa Brava) guida la classifica generale. Le prossime due gare saranno molto interessanti da seguire…
Altro ottimo risultato anche per Andrea Cucchi, che grazie al suo sesto posto in Danimarca, al momento si trova in settima posizione in classifica generale.
Bruno Martini termina la gara in Danimarca in 22° posizione, Malte Reuscher 31°, Andrea Rosati 42°, il giovanissimo Francesco Scagliola 53° (alla sua prima stagione in PWA) e Andrea Ferin 56°.

Day 6: Offringa champion of the world — Iachino clinches second victory of season
The final day of the 2016 Hvide Sande PWA World Cup saw an intense finish to the event even though it wasn’t possible to complete any further racing. During the morning there was barely a breath of wind, but during the afternoon a marginal breeze  built — creating a nail biting wait for Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) and Matteo Iachino (Starboard / Point-7), who led the event at the time — with Offringa on the verge of a 3rd slalom world crown.

However, the wind remained between 5-12 knots and with no further sign of improvement the sailors were released at 4:30pm — guaranteeing Offringa back-to-back slalom world titles and Iachino a second victory of the season, which sends the Italian to the top of the rankings for the first time since South Korea.

Sarah-Quita Offringa reacts after capturing her 3rd slalom world title — 12th overall — and her 2nd world title this season after winning her 9th freestyle world crown earlier this year: “I’m very happy. I was emotional when the event was officially called off because it’s been a stressful day with the conditions right on the edge, so it was pretty nerve wracking. It’s great to see so many girls competing with such a high level and hopefully that’s a good sign for the future. Thanks to all of my sponsors and much love to my family and friends for their non-stop support.”

Lena Erdil (Starboard / Point-7 / AL360) ends 2016 as the vice-world champion: “I didn’t really realise how close I was to winning the title and that 2nd here would’ve been enough. I’m still really happy to win the second race here and to have won two out of the three races completed this year. Second place isn’t a bad result and at the start of the season I’d have probably taken it if it was offered. Its also great to see the fleet getting stronger and stronger and things look exciting for the future.”

Matteo Iachino (Starboard / Point-7) returns to the top of the rankings: “I came here before the event, but the conditions were completely different when we started competing. I won in Korea and didn’t have the bestCosta Brava and was solid in Fuerte. Now I’m really happy to be leading. Me and Pierre have the same points but I think I lead because I’ve managed to win two events this year. It looks like it is going to be another exciting title race with two events to go.”

Sebastian Kördel (Starboard / GA Sails) earns a maiden podium: “This is two firsts for me even though I finished 3rd here. This was my first time to visit Denmark and my first podium finish on the world tour, which is a dream come true for me. This is only my second full year on tour, so I really wasn’t expecting this to happen so soon. It’s amazing. Denmark is also very beautiful and I hope that we have the opportunity to come back for several years to come.”

That concludes the first ever Hvide Sande PWA World Cup and the PWA would like to extend their thanks to all of the sponsors who made the event possible and offer their congratulations to all of the winners. We’ll be back on the 19th September until the 24th September for the next installment of radical waves from Cold Hawaii.

Ciao a tutti, sono Fabio Calò (ITA-720), ho iniziato a fare windsurf all’età di 13 anni e da quel momento è diventata la mia più grande passione, la mia vita. Finiti gli studi universitari ho iniziato a lavorare in un negozio di windsurf a Torino, poi agente di commercio e nel 2006 è iniziata la mia grande avventura con la redazione di 4Windsurf e poi anche di 4Sup. Sono stato campione italiano Wave di windsurf nel 2013 e 2015, altri ottimi risultati agonistici gli ho ottenuti anche nel freestyle sia in Italia che in Europa. Dal 2017 sono il direttore di una delle scuole più importanti del Lago di Garda, il PierWindsurf. Trasmetto la mia passione con progetti dedicati ai giovani come il Progetto Serenity di Malcesine, e organizzo Wave Clinics nel periodo invernale. Vivo a Torbole sul Garda e respiro l’aria del windsurf 365 giorni all’anno.
