Who\’s heard of Marcilio Browne? Well, this young kid from Brazil won the JUMP category beating Kauli Seadi & legend Robert Teriitehau. The UK\’s John Hibbard did exceptionally well placing 5th in the JUMP.
It was more predictable in the FREESTYLE where Jose (Gollito) Estredo beat fellow Margaritan Douglas (Cheo) Diaz into second. Ben Proffitt came 7th overall.
Kauli Seadi retained his podium status by winning the SLALOM just ahead of Robert Teriitehau who was sailing on his original North Indoor sails from the 1990\’s. Again, Ben Proffitt came 7th so a good event for the UK sailor.
As for World Freestyle Champ, Ricardo Campello, he had an argument with the start ramp & came off worse. One swollen foot later & his event was over – ouch!!
In the Women\’s event, Iballa Moreno won the JUMP & Karen Jaggi won the SLALOM & FREESTYLE. Daida Moreno was missing in action!
We were there so get ready for ALL the video action & gossip in the NEXT issue out mid-May.
