EFPT Lefkada Corona Open, end report

Anxton Otaegui wins the Corona open in Milos Beach&
today
 

The word of the day was "sick". Everyone who saw these last heats will leave the place stoked like hell.
 

But first things first.
The double on Saturday brought amazing action to Milos Beach. top riders in yellow lycras were waiting for their opponents to move forward and fight for better positions.
 

Young Swedish rider Niklas Strahlen (RRD/Simmer Style) was fighting his way through, beating Jakub Kosmowski (Tabou/Gaastra) as well as Andy "Bubble" Chambers (JP/NP) until he got stoped by Normen Günzlein (JP/NP). In the end he finished in 6th Position what is a great success. Normen met then Nikolas Akgazcyan (Starboard/Gun Sails) and as we all know the heat had to be stopped because of the dropping wind. In the end, Niko even broke his mast and had to be brought back to the beach by the rescue boat. As Niko had to leave the place at Saturday night the heat couldn't be repeated and Normen, who was leading the stopped heat, went one step further. In heat 33 he met the newcomer of this season the Belgium dude Stevan van Broeckhoven (F2). The young man was on fire and Normen had to fight hard to advance, but he knew what to do and in the end of the 5min heat G186 was in front. And as he was already on fire he was fully motivated during his heat against Andre Paskowski (Fanatic/North Sails). Another unbelievable heat was on the water. Andre and Normen, the two freestyle heroes of the team germany gave everything and as the chop was pretty high you could see "sick" jumps. All other riders and the greek spectators on the beach went crazy when both guys showed fantastic high one handed flakas almost at the same time. When the red flag went up and the heat was over Normen was once again announced as the winner of the heat and the final run against Antxon Otaegui (JP/NP) was about to begin. Both competitors on JP Boards and Neil Pryde sails in the same colour, pretty hard to say who is who… the judges had to use binoculars at the beginning to recognize the guys.
 

The almost 20 knots onshore wind brought them closer to the beach during the heat and they were fighting straight in front of the judge tower. Normen pulled a funnel Diablo, a nice switch kono and even had a kulo on his side and also other moves. Antxon showed his style in moves like switch chachoos, clef first punyeta Diablo, a "sick" ponch and esliders on both sides. In the end the riders and spectators were waiting severall minutes for the decision of the judges which had a hard time to decide between the two riders. a tough job.
 
It was Antxon Otaegui from Spain in the end who the judges had in first position. 3 of 5 judges gave their vote for him and a 3:2 decision shows once again how close it has been.
 
Right at the prize giving ceremony you could already feel how hard this night will be!!! Free corona for everyone brought the guys in the right mood and after packing their stuff most of them hit the road to go and celebrate in the famous "zeus bar"!!!
And if the party will be just half as good as the Corona Party last night, you better get in the way of the boys.
 
EFPT leaves Greece with 2 results. Next stop will be Alacati in Turkey where we also expect great conditions and as always a good time.

British Champion windsurfer Guy Cribb (North Sails) and Antoine Albeau of France, are about to attempt to windsurf across the English Channel from Cherbourg to Poole- over 70 nautical miles (more than 130 kms) of rough seas, some of the busiest shipping lanes in the world and howling winds to raise money for the Ellen MacArthur Trust and their French counterpart A Chacun Son Cap.
The Ellen MacArthur Trust aims to support, empower and enliven children suffering from cancer, leukaemia or other serious illnesses by introducing them to the joys of sailing.
By donating to the Ellen MacArthur Trust through supporting Guy and Antoine to windsurf where no other windsurfers have tried before, you will give confidence and happiness back to children who?ve been stuck in hospitals for months or years, by enabling them to mix with other children who?ve recovered or are trying to recover from cancer, and feel the camaraderie and bravery of each other whilst sailing or possibly windsurfing.
Guy and Antoine will windsurf the channel in a storm this September- keep checking www.guycribb.com for updates in the next few weeks, and wish them luck by making a financial pledge to the Ellen MacArthur Trust children on behalf of windsurfing here-www.justgiving.com/windsurf
 

Following the epic 2 for 10, we hit up Andre Paskowski (Fanatic, North Sails) for the low down on his most recent internet offering.

Q: You and Gollito have just released another awesome freestyle video on the internet. Where and when did you film this?
"I went on a trip to Egypt with Gollito 4 weeks ago. We did some photos and I filmed a little bit. After 2-3 days i realised that the footage is quite good and i decided to film more and do this clip. We spent around 10 days in Soma Bay and 6 days in Dahab."
Q: Conditions looked amazing, was it really that good?
"I been to Dahab loads of times already, so i knew it was going to be good there, but Soma Bay was something new for me. I really liked it there. Also Gollito had lots of fun. For him it was the first time ever in Egypt and i bet it wont be the last time."
Q: Do you and Gollito normally train together?
"Yes we do. We spent lots of time together in El Yaque. Besides sailing together we also work together on photo and video projects. It is always funny hanging around with Gollito."
Q: The moves in 2 for 10 shocked the freestyle world, was it hard for you to raise the bar again? 
"Well, i really enjoy filming and try to push Gollito to do different and new moves. I think we are a good team. He's such a talented sailor, so every movie we'll be able present something new!"
Q: Have you considered making a full length freestyle movie?
"I am always trying to find new projects. Me and my Partner Sebastian Dorr, who's in charge of the cutting, has already made Wet and Salty, and Flashback. But i guess the time for printed DVDs is almost over. The amount of time and money you have to invest is just not worth it. Then when you see your best friends burning your own DVD, or some DVD seller on the Beach try to sell you a Copy of Wet and Salty for 2 Euros, it's pretty frustrating. My plan is to concentrate (besides my windsurfing) on Videos for internet release. This way everybody gets to see them, and my sponsors get more exposure. The next release is planned for August, it will feature Gollito, Victor and Me in Pozo and Fuerte. It's gonna be a good one, for sure!"
Q: You seem to invent new moves all the time, do you think freestyle will continue to progress at this rate, or will it start to level off?
"I think the level will continue to rise. Maybe we will not see so many new moves, but we will see sailors doing moves faster, higher, and more consistently. All the young kids are really talented and motivated, so I'm sure we'll see impressive things in the future."

From June 22-27 Porto Pollo host the second edition of the Junior Freestyle World Cup, the only international championship recognized by ISAF and IWA on the promises of artistic specialty. It 'a great honor for Italy to host this event, which is part of a tradition of concern for future generations. Indeed in the last decade have landed on our shores the World Aloha / Mistral / Raceboard youth in Ostia, the World Junior FW Torbole, and to stay in recent times, the first edition of the World Techno 293/Raceboard/Mistral youth in Marsala in 2006, Europeans Techno 293/Raceboard youth in Civitavecchia in 2008, Europeans RS: X Youth in Palermo in 2008 and Junior Slalom World Cup ever last year in Torbole. 


Thanks to the efforts by AIWS and its President Riccardo Genazzani, it is the field of juniors Freestyle known to have a promising spring, with the first official national titles in 2008 and granted a growing number of young people engaged in different categories to give their best with their developments on the water. Carthusian that work, as demonstrated by our attendance at the long course in the history of Aloha and Techno 293, requires constant attention and dedication of individuals. Aggravated in the case of Freestyle by the fact that this discipline has not yet officially recognized by the Federation except as AICW inside the container and therefore does not enjoy even a minimal support. The World, to which boys are expected from different European countries (we predict Belgium, Holland, Russia, France and others) and probably some Caribbean, will be a test case in the hope of creating a continental approach to a more in favor of this spectacular discipline. 

After a few notes to read with care for all children who wish to take part in this event. Tessera: are the mandatory enrollment of IVF in 2009 including medical and relative maturity (certified athletic or healthy and robust constitution to bring to the circle at IVF which we pass) and the enrollment AICW 2009 (all cards are valid, including 'social art').

Even those who, for reasons of doubt on the participation refer to the preferred payment, please indicate your name by the end of the month. This procedure not only saves money but is essential for the organizers, who must know a few weeks in advance the number, in principle, the present, to be organized into logistics. Notice of Race: lime found in the Italian translation of the notice, not the usual procedure but was required, as many people face for the first time a major international competition and are not accustomed to the rules and IFCA IWA. To make the text is always the announcement in English attached. From the version of the notice published on the site dell'IFCA ifca.internationalwindsurfing.com / you can also obtain the forms attached in the compilation is very important.

Usually this document is copied and attached to the acts of enrollment in the race.

The World, to which boys are expected from different European countries (we predict Belgium, Holland, Russia, France and others) and probably some Caribbean, will be a test case in the hope of creating a continental approach to a more in favor of this spectacular discipline.

An Land: Am Manic fällt auf das große Monofilmfenster, das des robusten inmitten X-Ply-Rahmens sorgt für gute Sicht. Darüber hinaus ist das Segel an Ecken und alles gut enden verstärkt, als die Schothornöse Besonderheit ist zusätzlich mit Gurtband gesichert. 



Auf dem Wasser: Mit dem Manic Segelmachen Dan Kaseler ist ein Wavesegel gelungen, dass sehr gutes Off agiles Handling und auf der Welle mit sehr ausgewogenem, einfach zu beherrschendem Fahrhandling auf der Geraden verbindet. Beim Abreiten es liegt direkt und in der Hand federleicht - ist auf Wunsch neutral leicht zu stellen. 


In der Flachwassersession überzeugt es natürlich in Manövern, denn die Latten Zeihen sich völlig flach. Beim Schiften gibt es nur am Ende ein Leichtes "Fluff", wenn die Lattenenden den ganz sanft touchieren Mast. Obendrein wirkt es kein bisschen zickig, liegt sehr stabil in der Hand und selbst in starken BOEN bewegt sich der Druckpunkt praktisch nicht von der Stelle. Da sich das ohne Segel Winddruck völlig flachzieht, es lässt sich spielerische untertauchen oder wie bei Manövern Duck Jibes ziehen durch den Wind. Die Charakteristik macht es auch zu einem der radikalsten Segeln auf der Welle, dass sich leichthändig dirigieren lässt. Das Segel vergleichsweise wirkt direkt und lässt sich nicht ganz so dynamisch anpumpen. Über die Schothornspannung kann man es aber gut auf die persönlichen Vorlieben abstimmen, denn das Segel funktioniert sowohl mit sehr wenig Schothorn am Zug, als auch mit sehr flach aufgebaut. 1.3 Kilo der nur leichte Mast ist bei Bedingungen mäßigen gebrochen, Gaastra laut werden jetzt stärkere dimensionierte Masten eingesetzt.
