The top women’s fleet is brimming with international talent.
Alaçati is the penultimate event of 2007 which has shown a 100 % wind record to date and thrown up some excellent battles on the water.
Izmir province’s surf ‘n sound extravaganza has also proven incredibly popular, with over 60 racer’s worldwide making the event the most heavily subscribed of the season.
Hot Favorites - Women
· Karin Jaggi (F2 / North) – She’s already wrapped-up the 2007 title but her will to succeed is unstoppable.
· Valerie Ghibaudo (Tabou) – France’s top female racing talent has upped her game in 2007 and Jaggi has never had to fend off such a challenge as she did recently in Fuerteventura. Ghibaudo received a massive boost from that pressure and is likely to build momentum.
· Verena Fauster (F2 /Gaastra) – Fauster’s suffered from rusty early season form and may be dangerous if she peaks here in Turkey to blow the cobwebs away.
Local threats - Gul Tercan is the highest ranked Turkish women’s racer on the PWA tour. But it’s also worth watching out for Cagla Kubat (Starboard / North) who placed 6th in Alaçati back in 2006, and 18 yr-old Lena Erdil (JP / North), the Turkish youth champion, and Sedef Koktenturk (Fanatic / NeilPryde) who recently made her debut.
Skipper’s meeting tomorrow is at 11.00 for a first possible start of 11.30
