The kick-off event of the Windsurfing Euro-Cup season saw 48 competitors from 12 different nations competing at the Garda Trentino Euro-Cup in Torbole. On three out of four racing days it was possible to run competitions and the race crew managed achieve a total of five completed eliminations giving the competitors two discards.
Vincent Langer (GER-1) finished with a great 2nd place for the event after dominating day two. Also young German hotshot Nicolas Prien (GER-7) surprised the experts with a 3rd place in elimination 4 and left an excellent impression with an overall 7th place for the event. Well done to both!
After the Windsurfing Euro-Cup Torbole most of the racers are heading onwards to the first PWA Slalom event in Korea or to various national competitions. But already in two weeks many of them will meet again for the second Windsurfing Euro-Cup of the season. From May 12th to 17th the Summer Opening on Sylt invites Slalom competitors and Formula racers to the North Sea with a total prize money of € 10.000,-. This event will also be the chance for many competitors who have not participated in Torbole to enter the fight for the official IFCA Slalom European Championship title. Only a maximum of the best three events of each competitors count for the annual ranking list and the title. So there are still plenty of chances to score.
