Wild winds are sure to be on the agenda at Pozo…
The PWA world tour will soon be returning to wind swept beaches Gran
Canaria for one of the biggest events of the season. Commencing on the 9th
of July all the big guns from both the men¹s and women¹s fleets will
gathering at the legendary venueSPozo Izquierdo, ready to do battle. Wild
winds are sure to be on the agenda and when it is blowing 35-40 knots you
can be sure to expect nothing less than balls to the wall action from the
best sailors on the planet.
Pozo hero Bjorn Dunkerbeck (Proof, Neil Pryde), who won the men¹s wave
discipline in Pozo last year will be there to defend his title. Dunkerbeck
took his victory after narrowly defeating Norwegian jumping specialist
Vidar Jensen (Drops, North) in what will be remembered as one of the all
time dramatic PWA finals.
French windsurfing machine Antoine Albeau (AHD, Neil Pryde) will also be
back in the Canaries ready to defend his Overall Freestyle Crown. The big
man who hails from La Rochelle on the west cost of France took the title
after winning in Pozo and then placing fifth in the Fuerteventura
freestyle Grand Prix.
The infamous Moreno Twins (Mistral, North) who both live in Pozo are both
likely to feature on the podium of the women¹s competitions. They will
face challenges from a tough fleet, which includes the likes of Karin
Jaggi (F2, Arrows), Anne Marie Reichman (Naish Boards, Naish Sails) and
Colette Guadagnino (JP, Neil Pryde).
Whatever happens you can be assured the action will be second to none and
as the drama of the PWA world tour unfolds sailors will be fighting tooth
and nail for both valuable ranking points and the 130,000 Euro prize fund
up for grabs!
