Curacao Challenge: the training schemes have begun

With just two weeks to go to the main event, local windsurf club Windfreaks held a final big downwind slalom competition on the Spanish Water.

The months of training really showed off as all competitors improved significantly with their race starts and completion of the turns. It was quite a show with some good wind speeds despite of the forecasts.

Highlights of the day were Victor Wederfoort’s comeback wins after a bad second heat, the overall win of (freestyler) Felix Martina and big improvements for Indigo Kooij in the B-class.

We have to wait until the first week of April to see how they compare against the international field of competitors. But for those traveling to Curacao, the windsurfers are ready to take the stage and crown a local winner this year!
