Windsurfing - 20. May 2009.

Day 4: Ghibaudo ensure team France dominate in Korea.


Another day of sun and wind had the slalom fleet hard at work on the fourth day of competition in Korea. Showing early form, Alice Arutkin (Starboard / North) capitalised on a strong start in the opening women’s race (race 5), to notch up her first win of the competition: “The wind had picked up so I had to change my sail before the heat, but I was still sailing my biggest board as there were patches of light wind all over the course. It’s always tough sailing against Valerie (Ghibaudo) and Karin (Jaggi) but I think I sailed well. I’m really happy to have won.”

The subsequent three women’s heats saw utter domination from Valerie Ghibaudo (Tabou / The Loft), as she executed back to back wins to firmly cement her name at the top of the women’s rankings.

Chasing Ghibaudo, Karin Jaggi (North) and Alice Arutkin filled out the majority of the day’s remaining podium positions to secure second and third respectively in the overall standings so far.

Lena Erdil (Starboard / Loft) showed early promised after finishing second in the opening race, but seemed to drop off the boil as the day progressed. She scraped together a disappointing sixth and seventh in the following races, dropping her down to fifth overall, behind Sarah Hebert (Starboard / Naish) in fourth.
