Sarah-Quita Offringa secures second place on the fin!
Sara-Quita entered the Slalom in addition to the wave competition. She wanted to be part of history as the Slalom returned to Pozo after many years. The promise of high wind Slalom could seem a bit scary but this didn’t hold back the former 5-times Slalom champion. Sarah-Quita bet on only fin equipment. Her phenomenal speed on the Starboard iSonic 63L in combination with consistent gybes paid off and she managed to fight with the foils for the top places. The queen of windsurfing finished strong on day 5 of the Slalom World Cup in Pozo with second place. Congratulations!
A short statement from Sarah-Quita after the prize-giving ceremony:
“I just wanted to participate in an awesome event as it was a long time since we had a high-wind slalom competition. I was a little bit intimidated at first but as the races started I loved it. All the races were very technical and tactical. Usually in Slalom, the first reach is the most important. Here it was never over, anything could happen until the last metre. Every gybe, every chop, every leg mattered. I loved every minute of the event. I think it is the best racing I have done in my life. I put 120% into every race as I was chased by foils and I had to chase after foils. In the end, I went for the experience, but I finished in second place. It was for me a bit unexpected but I am super, super excited about it.”
