ISA Speedsurfing Grand Prix Karpathos 2007 - Final Results



The 1st round of the ISA speed world cup kicked of on the idyllic island of Karpathos in Greece. The event was run last year for the 1st time and proved to be very popular with the racers for being the most welcoming on the tour. It was not surprising then for 2007, a record 75 entrants turned up from 22 countries including Australia, Brazil and Hawaii. The line up was extremely strong including PWA sailors. The women's line up was formidable with Karin Jaggi the women's 500m world record holder and Zara Davis the world mile record holder all in attendance. It was set to be a very high standard competition.

The 1st heat was held on the wind minimum and really tested the light wind skill level of the fleet. The ladies were up first and the skill and racing experience showed through with a win for Valerie Ghibaudo and Karin Jaggi second and Marion Raisi third.

The women's result was also not a forgone conclusion, with Karin and Valerie swapping 1st place two times and Zara Davis a consistent third and taking 1st place in the final round and top speed for the week threatening an upset. The final result Zara Davis 3rd Karin Jaggi 2nd (and 1st production) and a well deserved 1st place for Valerie Ghibaudo.

The island of Karpathos and its people put on yet another very successful event, with the team promising 2008 to be bigger and better.

Final Results:


Women:
1. Valerie Ghibaudo (FRA, Loft)
2. Karin Jaggi (SUI, F2, North)
3. Zara Davis (GBR)
