Windsurfing - 26. August 2013.

Cousin crowned the champion of the world, Offringa clinch respective event victories

Untitled1_5.jpg


The PWA Pegasus Airlines World Cup proved to be a tricky affair this year with light winds creating hugely challenging racing. By the end of the week five eliminations were completed on the beautiful turquoise waters of Alacati in winds ranging from 7-18 knots - meaning that the majority of the sailors were on their biggest equipment for much of the week.

Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / Gaastra / Mystic / Chris Benz / Maui Ultra Fins), returned with an emphatic event victory, but all eyes were on Delphine Cousin (JP / NeilPryde) after the French lady secured her maiden PWA Slalom world title.

Sarah-Quita Offringa made an emphatic return to the slalom scene as she dominated with four victories out of the five eliminations completed to seal a superb event victory.

Words from the winner of the PWA Pegasus World Cup:

“Thanks to everyone for being here, this week was amazing, I’m really happy with the races we got it. I want to thank the organizers, the PWA crew, thank you so much. It’s been a tough week but it worked out well in the end. Thank you to everyone to all their support.”

However, Offringa’s brilliant performance couldn’t keep the limelight away from Delphine Cousin, who claimed her maiden PWA world championship at the age of just twenty-two years old, with a very consistent display to see off the challenge of the 2012 world champion Valerie Ghibaudo (Tabou / Gaastra / Mystic) and Swiss gem Karin Jaggi (Patrik / Severne), who both seemed slightly off the pace for much of the week. But both women still finished the season in second and third place overall, respectively.

The new world champion - Delphine Cousin shares a few words:

“I’m super happy, I don’t think I quite realize what’s going on for the moment but we made some great racing this week, I’m just so happy!”

Local hero Cagla Kubat (Starboard / Loft Sails) completed the event podium with an accomplished display, which included two second places - in eliminations two and three - respectively - whilst also achieving her best overall ranking to date, fourth.

Fellow compatriot Lena Erdil (Patrik / Loft Sails / Mystic / AL360) couldn’t quite replicate the form that she showed last year and eventually finished 2013 in seventh place overall. Japan’s Ayako Suzuki (Starboard / Gaastra / Mystic) completed the top five, whilst seventeen year old Dilara Uralp (JP / NeilPryde) clinched sixth place - proving that she is a talent that will need to watched carefully over the coming years.
