The 2007 Costa Teguise Grand Slam - Day 4



Women’s Double

  1. Sarah-Quita Offringa
  2. Daida Moreno
  3. Laure Treboux (Naish / Naish)

It’s 1-1 between Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde) and Daida Moreno (North). There are potentially 2 more double eliminations possible this event to help them break the tie. What a way to celebrate her birthday. Congratulations Sarah-Quita!

Here the girls give you a picture of what the final stages were like for them.

Laure: ‘At this level I would’ve settled for podium beforehand anyway, but I’m always pleased to be there. I’m a bit disappointed that I couldn’t make any of my tricks I’ve learnt prior to the comp, but in these heats it’s been gusty and hard work’

Daida: ‘It’s all or nothing against Sarah-Quita. Either you sail well and you can win convincingly, or else she really smashes you. I sailed better in the final than I did in my semi, and I was way more comfortable. Still, it was super-gusty and there are loads of holes in the wind. I completed some good tricks; A one-footed forward, and a clew-first spock, but I fell on my flaka. That’s the way it is sometimes!’

Sarah-Quita: ‘Before my heats I really practiced and all I was focusing on was not to fall and ruin my momentum when the pressure was on. I saw Daida land some cool stuff, like her one-footed forward which was pretty high and radical, and that pushed me to try a Goiter, but I crashed. But I made loads of other stuff on both tacks, like Puneta’s, Grubbies, and all I could think was that I wanted to avoid a re-sail with her as that’s a major risk to take. It’s one apiece now so let’s pray for wind and see what happens!’
