Our Starboard Dream Team rider Sebastian Koerdel managed to navigate through the event with very consistent results and became the Vice-World Champion.
Sebastian about his Vice-World Title:
“The event was physically very demanding. Especially with the light wind, the iQFOiL class is a very heart-rate-driven sport.
