ADDICTED TO RIDE SINCE 81
– IN THE LOOP SINCE TODAY
IFCA Worlds Paros
4x podium @ the the IFCA World Champs in Paros!
With almost no slalom events this season and the not so easy traveling circumstances, Paros has now made its stamp as a world class slalom destination after producing outstanding racing conditions throughout the entire event from light to medium to strong and super strong winds.
Well done to our girls - Jenna Gibson in 1st, Sarah Jackson in 2nd and Olivia Rosique in 3rd! And of course to Jordy Vonk, who finished as Vice World Champion in the men’s division!
In the women’s division it became quite certain that the fast British Jenna Gibson GBR was the strongest among the women by winning 24 out of the 27 races sailed. Her teammate Sarah Jackson GBR managed to keep second with a pretty consistent performance during the races. The third position went to Olivia Rosique FRA from France and is now a name to remember among the top female slalom racers while the 2019 slalom European female champion - all three on Fanatic/Duotone!
The men’s division saw some top names, young windsurfers and masters which caused some tough battles. Fanatic´s Jordy Vonk NED was the one who kept it all smooth by always advancing and securing a spot into the A finals, finishing among the top 4 at all times including a bullet in elimination #4 which paid off after the 3rd discard and is now happily crowned Vice Slalom World Champion!
