…thanks to the police for allowing us to sail today, because everywhere else it was forbidden…
So Wout got stopped by me for 4th place and I myself found a perfect rhythm for the heats being perfectly powered up on my 3.6 Severne S1 and Starboard Koster Kode 72! I managed to do a back loop and push loop every heat combined with two solid wave rides, which always included a backside 360 together with a few turns. The result was that I managed to sail myself all the way till first place!
Everyone was sailing great and Olivier Pas even got close to a double but lucky for me he didn’t land it…
So final results are:
1st Dieter van der Ekyen
2nd Thomas Beullens (who actually didn’t even want to enter the event)
3th Olivier Pas
4th Nick de Wannemeaker
5th Wout Burman
It was great to compete in some of the best conditions we have seen on the Belgian coastline for competition in many years. We also have to say thanks to the police for allowing us to sail today, because everywhere else it was forbidden as it was wind above a force 7.
