Mondial du vent, an event with a tremendous job ...
Not only Action Sports ... a blacksmith working with politicians and sponsors in order to maximize not only fun but the impact that the "Glisse" on the territory.
Here hold an event means above all to create the conditions so that we can continue to make events in the short and long term.
To this end,, at the Conference opening of digits which have been Glisse for a small town like Leucate are almost mind-boggling: 13,3 Million annually in direct industry shops take schools etc. ( to have a comparison to other important activities on site suffice it to say that the local wine industry stands on 10 Millions) to which must be added 6 Million of indirect benefits for restaurants and 9.5 Million for hospitality ... Then la Glisse Leucate generates a total of almost 29 Million annually!!!
Then we would have to consider also the indirect benefits ranging from exploding brick (over the past 15 years, European trend of, increased almost tenfold), the growing number of people from abroad are moving to this area for use in sports of Glisse (Windsurfing, Sup, Kite etc etc), or they are simply on holiday after maybe seeing some footage of Windsurfing that rendered tribute to the beauty of these places where nature is still wild and unspoiled stretches.
All entrepreneurs involved attended the opening night where oysters and French cheeses accompanied the best local wines.
The Region Occitanie, The Grand Narbonne, the Department of Aude, surrounding towns, the French Sailing Federation ... were all represented at "the highest level".
Just think of the presence of Didier Codorniou: first vice President of Occitanie, an area of 78,000 sq km ( Lazio is 17,000 sq km) and one of the greatest players in French history of rugby: Le Petit Prince!
But come to us ...
Here summer is here suddenly after a cold winter, wet and windy than ever ...
The scorching summer temperatures almost allowed the general public to attend this event without regret the strong winds of Tramontana …
The Freestyle however is a discipline that can be just as spectacular even in the absence of wind with the rider being dragged from jet skiing (here in years took turns big names to drive your jet ski: the King of speed Antoine Albeau to crazy waver rider Julien Taboulet).
In test day before the race Tonky Frans (RRD, Xcel, LSD Fins, Chiemsee) pollicino is like a ferret pulled from jet skiing!
At the same time on stage at the Village of MDV Vice President in the region with responsibility for Sport: KAME Chibli confirmed himself with his presence as politics has understood the importance of wind resource not only in terms of energy (wind turbines) but also sporty especially under induced generated.
This is why the Plan Litoral 21 has allocated funds to 1 Billion to be invested on the shores of Occitanie Region in the period 2018-20120!!! And the Grand Narbonne dedicated 700.000 Euro per la Glisse in 3 years for a small stretch of coast with 17 towns that make up the agglomeration Grand Nabonne within the Department of Aude in the region where wind chain Occitanie is serious business.
Also interesting was the lecture on Foil organised by F-one ... indeed the concept foil, as Anders Bringdal is egregiously proving with Sea Bubble, beyond the fun ... the Foil makes the cheapest and even greener transport more comfortable given the failure to hit the water and chop.
Saturday 21 April, Founding of Rome, Final freestyle windsurfing is expected to Tow in
Here are the names of the finalists:
Locals Sam Esteve and Nico Akgacjian, Italians Riccardo brand and Louis Fabiano, English Adam Sims, and then Tonky Frans, Antoine Albert (Goya Windsurfing, All-in Sport Beach Company, Services +, Acpv Nc), Steven Van Broeckhoven Win (JP, GUNSAILS, iFins Inter., O'neill, He Says Sound, Agrityre, Shamal Sunglasses), Nil Bacon Aubert, Anthony Ruenes (Tabou Boards, GA Sails, All-in Sport Beach Company).
But here we are aboard Beach: 25° Sun and clean water!
The Falesa of Leucate backdrop ... as a backdrop to this wonderful natural Amphitheater ...
Here comes Nico Akgazciyan (99 NoveNove, Challenger Sails, L'artisan Groupe OPB, Balthazarphwine – Les Celliers jean d'alibert, ClimatPur Maintenance, Sooruz, Leucate, Maui Ultra-bright Fins) and part a cannon with a Air Funnel Burner ... a little underestimated by the jury with 7.97 ... Ends fourth aware that could aspire to something more … but his class has electrified the par terre!!! Two out of three manoeuvres were from podium (first on the average of two manoeuvres)!!!
Then it's time for the immense Sam Esteve (JP, NeilPryde, Melty, NP), polite, clean and amazing talent ... Sam begins relaxed and then shoot yourself a double Air Funnel Funnel by applause!!!
Is worth a 8.25 and third place!!!
But the big surprise to level score came with Adam Sims (Patrik, Sailloft Hamburg, ProMounts, BR Fins) that double Spock on the first try took home a 8,44 and the first place!!!
The entry into water of Tonky audiences were already waiting for some dextrous running … And was not disappointed!!! Tonky second attempt has concluded an Air Bunner 360 very clean: 7.63 and fourth place! He also offered the second as Nico maneuver worthy of a final!
And now let's see what says our Italy … Enter Louis Fabiano (Patrik, Challenger Sails, Danilo Lai Fins, Ride Engine, Techno Limits, ABC Chiropractic) Nice seasoned …and puts his signature on a air Bunner 360 by 7.50 a 0,13 by Tonky Frans and closes sixth! He, too, with a nice second maneuver … which unfortunately was not sorting!!!
Our Riccardo Brand (Fanatic, Northsails, Lagoa Fins) showed great class although it failed to close its best rigging; instead from New Caledonia Antoine Albert the first blow, with one Skopou Funnel has convinced the judges that they have awarded a 8.31: second place!!, Steven Van Broeckhoven Win, eighth, with a double Air Funnel not super incisive stopped at 6.84 … so go for it …
The final was electrifying . We can say that all finalists were given show!!!
To the best of two manoeuvres the ranking would see 1°) Nico , 2°) Tonky, 3°) Sam. ..
Stand Up Padlde races remain, and then the MDV us farewell at 2019 here in La Franqui.
A greeting to all our loyal readers windy ...
