PWA worldcup in Brouwersdam!

I just got back from the PWA competition i Holland. It was a lot of fun with 16 girls competing from all over the world. We managed to run 2 single and 1 double elimination. The wind was up and down between 13-40 knots the whole week. I used all my sails, and spent a lot of time rigging as the wind was shifting between 5.2 and 4.0 each 10 minutes. In the double I won 4 heats in a row, and lost the 5th against Olya Raskina who ended up on a 4th place. Was a pretty hectic day with just 10 minutes break between the heats, and I was always using different sails in each heat. Was good training in changing the boom in a record time. At the end I ended up on 5th place. Big congrats to Sara-Quita as number one and World Champion, my good friend Arrianne who became 2nd, sailing some siiick heats, and Yoli and Olya for 3rd and 4th place.

After the competition I spent a few more days in Holland as the forecast looked amazing. Sailed some super nice spots, with my friend Arrianne and “caddy Danny”, which I never really believed would exist! Spots with 2 km superflat water on both tacks. Check out a short moveclip on the link below:
