Windsurfing - 24. June 2014.

Sarah-Quita Offringa is officially the Queen of the Caribbean

Women’s

The final day of the PWA Bonaire World Cup provided another fantastic day of freestyle as the second double elimination was completed. With winds lighter than yesterday the majority of sailors reached for their 4.8-5.2m’s as they battled it out for the final time this week.

Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / Mystic / Chris Benz / Maui Ultra Fins) claimed a throughly deserved victory in the women’s, remaining unbeaten yet again, after a phenomenal display of sailing.

 

Double Elimination II

 

Maikke Huvermann (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) fought her way back from fourth place yesterday by winning three heats in a row against Yoli de Brendt (Fanatic / North), Oda Johanne (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins) and Arrianne Aukes (RRD / Simmer / Maui Ultra Fins) to progress into the winners’ final.

Winners’ Final

 

In the final winners’ final Sarah-Quita Offringa took on Maikke Huvermann for the second time this week. Huvermann had shown amazing consistency in her earlier heats and the sixteen year old produced a fine performance in the final as well. The reigning PWA Youth Freestyle World Champion landed a fantastic repertoire of moves such as flakas on both tacks, faultless punetas and a text-book funnel, she even came close to landing a switch chachoo. However, Offringa was at her brilliant, unbeatable, best yet again as she landed virtually any move she wanted. On her way to a comprehensive event victory the Queen of Freestyle exploded through fantastic funnels, superb shakas and new school power moves such as regular konos and an outrageous culo.

 

The unmistakable Sarah-Quita Offringa

 

Bonaire produced four unbelievable days of freestyle out of five and will go down as one of the best freestyle events in the history of the PWA - with the action on the water reaching incomparable heights from what we have seen before. The final day was concluded with a vibrant closing ceremony representing the true culture of the Caribbean.
