Windsurfing - 26. July 2007.

The 2007 Fuerteventura PWA Grand Slam - Day 5

Women’s Race 14

Valerie Ghibaudo (Tabou) headed the pack away from the start and showed superior speed from Karin Jaggi (F2 / North) along the opening reach. She held the lead despite pressure from Jaggi at the second mark which caused the Swiss girl to fall after attempting an inside overtaking maneuver. That fall allowed Iballa Moreno (North) and Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde) to cruise on by.

Offringa stayed glued to second position, reluctant to let Moreno past as Jaggi recovered and sailed back into 4th. Ghibaudo coolly rounded the final gybe still in the lead; as Offringa survived an inside swoosh by Jaggi who subsequently fell once again.

Ghibaudo surged ahead to win as Offringa and Moreno slugged it out for second and third, but the Offringa had the composure to finish the job as Moreno settled for third.

Women’s Race 15

The final women’s race would settle the title in a fitting end to a week’s fantastic racing.

Jaggi made no mistakes with a clear-cut start-to-finish victory. Ghibaudo tried several times to sneak an inside line or to push hard for a direct downwind line along the reaches. Jaggi was in no mood to lose the event after this many mistakes and she drove it home ruthlessly to take the event title and 2007 tour lead. Ghibaudo followed soon in second and Moreno snaked Offringa for third.
