21/05/2019 – Cousin Questel extends simply Foil, While in the men's slalom there are a multitude of casualties among the big names in difficult conditions
The Day 4 the Ulsan PWA World Cup of 2019 has produced the largest number of races of the week so far with 2 new Women's Foil Eliminations, and 9 opening men's Slalom heats completed. However, things have gone incredibly slow and it took 6 hours to complete your batteries with a fluctuating wind force is in that direction, which made the race very difficult.
The leader of day processing – Delphine Cousin Questel (Starboard / S2Maui / Starboard Foil) – started the day with a point advantage over Marion Mortefon (Fanatic / Duotone / LOKEFOIL), but after two more races today the current world leader has extended its lead to 2,3 points having claimed a second victory in 4 deletions, and a third place.
Marion Mortefon remains the closest rival Cousin Questel in second place after a second and third place today, but now Marina Alabau the breathes on your neck – only 1 point away. For a short time, It seemed that Alabau M. would have been in the lead after winning the third elimination, the 33-year-old had clinched pole position in fourth race after passing the buoy. However, Alabau M. crashed on the next edge when he tried to adjust the trapezoid tops, After finding himself in fourth place. This still allows for Alabau. M to discard the 9th place from the first race to improve from 5° to 3° place overall, but he knows that could be potentially tops the list. Alabau M. It is now only 1 point of posting by Mortefon in second place and closed with 2,7 two days after completion points by Cousin Questel.
Meanwhile, Blanca Alabau (Starboard / Severne / Starboard Foil) and Hella Oppedal (Fanatic / Duotone) they lose both a position 4° and 5° place respectively, finding himself.
After the 11 deletions of operation (7 in Japan and 4 so far in South Korea) the first 5 females have firmly established themselves as the best of the discipline of Foiling.
The two opening rounds of the men's Slalom also looked forward to the usual riders with no real upsets. However, in the early 3 quarterfinals that followed there were a multitude of big upheavals.
In the opening quarter – battery 7 – Quentel Julien (Patrik / Gun Sails), Pascal Toselli (JP / Loftsails / Chopper Fins) and Sebastian Kördel (Starboard / GA Sails) they all suffered early exits. From heat 7 advance Ethan Westera (Tabou / GA Sails), Alexandre Cousin (Patrik / Phantom Sails / Chopper Fins), Antoine Questel (I-99 / S2Maui) and Taty Frans (Future Fly / Point-7).
In The Heat 8 Arnon Dagan (Future Fly / NeilPryde) and Bruno Martini (I-99 / Point-7), which have concluded 7mi in Marignane, they were both disqualified for false start. After several unsuccessful attempts to complete the heat due to big holes of wind, the second quarter-final was finally validated, but there have been other victims of big names including current world champion – Antoine Albeau (JP / NeilPryde) – and the current number 10 – Marco Lang (Fanatic / Duotone). Albeau and’ appeared to be hindered by the algae on the first edge, which meant that the French lost precious ground, While Lang and’ been slowed from algae to the first buoy and with light wind is incredibly difficult to reduce the deficit.
Gonzalo Costa Hoevel (Starboard / Severne / Chopper Fins) He won the race ahead of Tristan Algret (Starboard / Severne / Chopper Fins), Ben van der Steen (Goya Windsurfing / Gun Sails) and Ingmar Daldorf (Tabou / GA Sails) – all gia’ qualified among the top 16.
The Heat 9 turned out to be the last heat of the day and there was an added drama to Andrea Ferin (I-99 / Challenger Sails / AL360) claiming that Steve Allen (Patrik / Severne) He hit the first mark when he was in position to qualify. However, no action was taken and the result is valid. Henry Madsen (JP / NeilPryde) He won the race ahead of Finian Maynard (FMX Racing), Jordy Vonk (Fanatic / Duotone) and Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne), they have done well to overcome Allen to take the final positions of qualification. However, lacking both Basile Jacquin (I-99 / Point-7) that Maciek Rutkowski (FMX Racing / Challenger Sails).
With the wind that keeps making the whims, in the end the races were stopped shortly after 19:00. Riders will meet again tomorrow morning at 8:00 (GMT + 9) skipper meeting and action from 9:00 onwards. The wind should be slightly stronger Wednesday, but the intensity’ wind power has never been the real challenge of today and tomorrow will be the key point for the constancy of wind. On paper, however, there is the potential for a solid day of competition.
