News Headlines – Wed 9th

The big news from yesterday is that Bjorn Dunkerbeck\’s back on top in PWA Slalom, while Valérie Arrighetti (née Ghibadou) leads the women\’s fleet at PWA Costa Brava. It\’s pretty quiet on the blogging front save for this brief missive from Kevin Pritchard, but we already have the first movie, and you can follow today\’s action as it unfolds on the PWA ticker and new live GPS tracking. You didn\’t have anything else to do this afternoon, did you?


Further afield in Spain, as the World Cuppers begin to drift into Pozo to train for the Canaries Tour, Salinas is looking pretty sweet with northerly wind and southerly swells. As ever, CUTRE have some beautiful shots of the action.

The BWA have subtly revised their ranking system, doing away with the awarding of \’attendance points\’ at no wind events. Sounds fair enough…

Second placed pro John Skye has a nice movie on his blog from his recently concluded Moulay clinic. While fellow RRD stalwart Jem Hall is just leaving for Rhodes, and offers us this footage of last year\’s clinics.

Karavi Water Sports are throwing Greece\’s biggest \’girls only\’ windsurfing camps on Schinias Beach, Athens, over the last three weekends in July. And it\’s alongside the Greek national beach volleyball championships too, so could be that a few red-blooded Greek men might just sneak in to watch. Ay malaka!

And finally, there\’s going to be free beer at the Rutland Marathon this Sunday, courtesy of Heinekan UK. So download the sponsorship form from the UKWA site, dust off the race kit and head for the East Midlands.
