We’re almost through the first round of the double elimination, with all the ‘expected’ faces making it through to the next round. The wind seems to have dropped a little as we head into the next round, but there is still more than enough wind for some great action.
There were some dramas in the first round already, with probably the closest heat of the round being between Sanhelly and Campello. Support for Sanhelly came through and questions were raised by many about both his jump and wave scores, claiming they should have been a lot more. But, the scores stand as they are, so it is Campello that continues through.
Alessio Stillrich also had drama in his heat, with a change down of sail mid-way through, but this didn’t seem to help and Stillrich struggled to pull together the moves we all know he is capable of.
