Danielle Lucas reports from the second day of the Dahab Freestyle Festival on Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula

Today’s final heats for the double elimination saw incredible sailing by all the competitors in fantastic windy conditions, luckily much stronger wind than forecast putting everyone on 4.6-4.8s. Unfortunately, after making an amazing climb up the ladder in yesterday’s heats, Laure Treboux battled up to 6th but was unable to continue her entry, and so we saw locals Salama and Izzy battle out again in an impressive full power heat. Salama came through with massive double flakas and a smooth double spock, bringing himself into 3rd position. Next heat saw Salama against Vladimir (Vova) and loads of power moves were being seen. Again Salama sailed a great heat but Vova managed to win it on points, it was close though with both sailing really well. The next heat was single elimination winner Phil Richards facing Vova, and again a very close heat, Phil started slower than Vova but came back fast both pulling massive konos, bobs and shakas as well as many other moves. The decision was a hard one for the judges, but Vova took the heat and so the final battle began with the pair competing once more for the overall winner to be decided. Again an impressive display of power moves was seen, fully planing konos from Phil were the move of the day, but Vova managed to land more moves and in the end took the win.
