News Headlines – Mon 6th

It\’s not been the windiest of weekends out in Catalunya for the slalom at PWA Costa Brava, but they did have enough for an eighth and final elimination with Alberto Menegatti taking line honours over Bjorn Dunkerbeck. But with F-192 discarding his seventh, that wasn\’t nearly enough to wrestle overall control from Antoine Albeau who took a convincing event victory nearly 16 points ahead of Dunky in second and Ben Van Der Steen in third. Full results and round-up at pwaworldtour.com

Unfortunately they had nothing at Gruissan for the long-distance racing spectacular that is Defi Wind. So Friday\’s results count as overall event placings, hence the spoils go to Patrick Diethelm, Bieuzy Mauffret and Laurent Gaüzère in the men\’s fleet and Karin Jaggi, Marion Dusart and Sarah Hébert in the women\’s. Here\’s the action from last Friday, and read the event report at boards.co.uk


 

Out on Sardinia, round two of EFPT competition suffered nought but light breezes all weekend at Porto Liscia. Not enough for any freestyle competition proper, but the organisers did lay on a Samsung sponsored tow-in session. Julien Mas took the honours with an air-funnell into funnell, Dieter van Der Eyken took second (and reports on it at his sponsors\’ site at star-board.com), Steven van Broeckhoven third and Kenny Janssen fourth. British hope Adam Sims impressed with some strong funnells and burners to secure fifth – more from him at k669.blogspot.com. Full write-up at efpt.net

Talking EFPT, Jamie Drummond has posted quite a late report from the first round last weekend at Milos Beach. Not the windiest of events, but Jamie\’s justifiably celebrating his highest ever placing of ninth and looking forward to his Fuerte wildcard entry later this summer at jamiek787.blogspot.com

Also looking back, Point-7 ripper Adam Lewis reports back to his sponsors on his stand-out fourth-placed performance at round two of the BWA Four Nations Cup in Ireland on point-7.com

The man who denied Adam third place, Andy \’Bubble\’ Chambers has officially announced that he will be riding K4 Fins in the future. Truth be told, he\’s been on them for a little while already having been instrumental in developing Steve Thorp\’s new freestyle fins. More at k4fins.com

Across the North Sea, today is last chance saloon for wind at Klagsham for round two of the European Speed Championships in Sweden – Guernsey Islander Martyn Ogier has made the long trip as reported at martynogier68.blogspot.com, and with wind forecast for today we hope to see a result soon at speedworldcup.com

Out in the USA, coming up it\’s the Pistol River Wave Bash 16-19 June in Oregon for the second round of wavesailing competition on the americanwindsurfingtour.com. Back for more this year alongside Robby Naish, Josh Stone, Bryan Metcalf Perez, Tyson & Whitt Poor, Rob Warwick and Casey Hauser, Britain\’s Sam Neal has set up a new blog so we can follow his progress at samnealk31.blogspot.com

And finally, given the conditions we\’ve had just lately in the UK, don\’t forget to post your entries for the Boardseeker Open Airtime League – currently our features editor Emile Kott is sitting in top spot in his own competition with 1.94 seconds, but with strong Danish entries and more to come from the likes of Timo Mullen surely that can\’t last long?
