Round 4 complete
With a surge of wind in the closing minutes it looks like many of the top runners posted their quickest speed during their final runs.
All round the feeling was that it was a bit on the lighter side with scores generally lower than yesterday. Although the girls seemed to up their game and whilst the men were 1.5 to 2 knots slower they only lost 0.5 knots, and in Lena Erdil’s case she even went faster. So a good morning for the girls.
On the way up the beach we spoke with both Björn and Jurjen:
Yes the wind was lighter than we expected in that heat, I think it caught a few of us off guard, but still I managed to hit a peak of 40 knots and had some good runs in the final minutes – Björn stated.
It was tricky conditions, I tried many lines from a low and stronger wind to a high and flatter water run. In the end I got some ok runs but I’m looking forward to this afternoons wind to kick in. – Jurjen van der Noord told us.
Preliminary results coming right up.
