Exciting medal races on the final day at Texel and the victory for the German Bernd Flessner, Kasper Larsen second and Damien Le Guen in third. FINAL RESULTS

 

Beach start

At 14.00 the medal races got started. In the first race of the day the riders, who were placed from 11 to 20 started with a running beach start and had to make it through the beachbreak and sail afterwards through a 3 mark downwind course. The inside mark was placed in the zone of breaking waves. Young talented Maciek Rutkowski could win the first medal race of the day. Hundreds of excited spectators, who came for the start of the Round Texel race, which were held for catamarans only - 400 boats participated in this extreme long distance - watched the windsurfers fighting it out. The wind was strong, blowing side offshore with 20 to 25 knots. Most of the sailors were on 7,8 or 7,0 sails, some went bigger, like Vincent Langer, who went on a 8,3 and his big 85 cm wide Slalom board.

In the second medal race the top 10 sailors fought it out and again it was 42 year old German Bernd Flessner from Norderney, who took the hammer down and the IFCA Slalom Worldtitle. Big congrats to this great performance. In second came Danish Kasper Larsen, followed by French sailor Damien Leguen.
