Olivier Dansin (FRA, North) tangled right on the start line due to Bram Hoogendijk (NED, Peter Lynn) who looped his kite into Olivier’s as he got blocked by the fleet and tried to get away. When this kind of mistake happens the rider needs to scream “Protest” on the water in order to fill out a proper protest form once the race is over. At the end of the day all protests are discussed with Markus Schwendtner, IKA representative, who then decides the legitimacy of the protest.
In the girls division, Katja Roose (NED, Airush) was happy to finish first again and confirm her recently acquired top spot overall for this event after 11 races. She reckoned that she played well with the shifting winds, tacking as they were changing to get to the upwind buoy. Meanwhile Steph Bridge (GBR, North) commented that she rode well but didn’t go as fast as she thought she should and is now thinking about going on a diet…
