After a third day without being able to complete a heat, the wind started to blow the 4th day of the PWA World Cup 2017 Waterz Hvide Sande and luckily the algae that caused so much trouble so far are no longer’ been a limit thanks to offshore winds of night they pushed off. There have been large variations both in force in wind direction which overall has blown between 20 and 30 knots and has seen most of the girls with the 6.2-7.0 and the guys with the 7.8 -8.6 square meters. By the end of the day were completed two more eliminations that see Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) first ever’ close to the victory of the event and the world title after winning the two deletions today while Antoine Albeau (RRD / NeilPryde) is firmly in the hunt for the title of the event after winning both the deletions now to greatly reduce the advantage of Matthew Iachino.
Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) He may have started the event slowly but since then the 26-year-old is in sparkling form. Offringa had started the day in second place, but after her performance has an advantage of 3,9 points and and’ on the verge of capturing the title 2017 PWA Slalom women's World. Delphine Cousin Questel (Starboard / S2Maui) is the closest challenger to Starboard after a day that saw former world champion twice in second position but must do more if it wants to take the title of the race in the last event of the season.
After starting the event extremely brilliant Lena Erdil (Starboard / Point-7 / AL360) suffered a disastrous day. The vice world champion was leading the event early in the day but down in third place after the disappointing results of a 5th and 9th place. In the second race Erdil was a little unfortunate after crashing with Oda Johanne (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra-bright Fins) before the starting line, This incident prevented a possible comeback. Marion Mortefon (Fanatic / Northsails) you and’ ensured other two third places to cement his fourth place in the rankings of the event with just Erdil 1,3 points away and Cousin Questel to 3 points.
The 20-year-old Maëlle Guilbaud (Patrik / Loftsails) He made a slow start to the event with an 8° and 12° spot, but he has regained confidence after discovering to be ranked third in the world rankings and you and’ guaranteed two solid 4° positioning itself in the top five at the expense of Jenna Gibson (Fanatic / Northsails) and if the second difference comes into play then could still be improved.
The current world champion Matthew Iachino (Starboard / Point-7 / Shamal Sunglasses) had a clear advantage at the top of the events at the beginning of the event but has seen his lead reduced to just 1 point after the current leader of the tour Antoine Albeau (RRD / NeilPryde) He won both the deletions now. Albeau acknowledged that while his speed was excellent on the opening day of the competitions, his concentration may have darkened a bit, but now is back to his best and now there is a battle for the title of the event that could prove crucial in deciding on this year's World Championship.
Among the Italians we find Bruno Martini (RRD, Point-7, AL360) in 18th position, Malte Reuscher (JP, NeilPryde, Selin srl) in 20th, Andrea Rosati in 21st (RRD, Loftsails, Nissan), Andrea Ferin (RRD, Challenger Sails, AL360) 24th position, Andrea Cucchi (Starboard, Point 7, Plansrl.it, Gul) in 26th position, Maximilian Langston (Fanatic, Northsails, Fang your Friends, ION) in the 47th and Francesco Scagliola (Point-7, MaverX Masts) the 48th place.
