The PWA World Cup Guincho Wave Contest 2007 Event Summary
It’s V for Victory as Spanish Star Daida Moreno (North) who took the event titles after a week long waiting game.
Iberian talent Moreno kept celebrations on ice this week after winning the single eliminations of the Women’s contests in tricky conditions.
In a red-hot ladies’ contest, Moreno defeated her long-time adversary Karin Jaggi (F2 / North) as both riders showed massive skill and composure to stay on top of the fast-rising standards in the women’s game.
The potential of some rare south wind gave an extra edge to the tension, but it never materialized and the single elimination results stood firm for the winners.
Daida Moreno, now the 2007 tour leader, was positive too. ‘It feels really good to finish this week which was admittedly a long wait. We had two days of OK sailing at the start, and luckily a great result for me. But, I’m just stoked about starting the tour off on the right foot.
My goal for the rest of the season is simply to have fun - hopefully in some nice conditions- and to maintain a high level of performance’
The tour now rolls out of Portugal and on to Spain for The 2007 Cataluña Costa Brava PWA Slalom-42 World Cup.
Next on the wave series is Pozo in Gran Canaria in July, where this fascinating title race will be played out further.
Now the women’s tour is out of the blocks, Daida Moreno leads ahead of Karin Jaggi in second, while Iballa Moreno, the present women’s world wave sailing champion must settle for third.
Our thanks go out to our Portuguese hosts and sponsors, Estoril Coast Tourism and Overpower for once more laying-on a spectacular event, and for their world-renowned hospitality.
