Valerie Arrighetti: go get the title, girl

Valerie Arrighetti has been crowned the 2012 PWA Women's Slalom Windsurfing champion, in Alacati, Turkey.

The 2012 Pegasus Airlines PWA World Cup, in Alacati, ended up in emotional mode, with Antoine Albeay claiming his first event victory of the year and Arrighetti securing a world title in the Slalom division.

Valerie Arrighetti managed to win the crucial battle between herself and Jaggi, as the French lady claimed third place, whilst Jaggi had to settle for fourth.

"I'm very, very, very happy! I can't quite believe what has happened yet as it doesn't feel real. Alacati has been a real challenge for me again. I'm incredibly happy to have won the world tour!", said Arrighetti.

Sarah-Quita Offringa continued her fine form and combined her untouchable top speed with fully planing gybes as she destroyed the rest of the fleet.

Although Antoine Albeau won the event here in Alacati, Bjorn Dunkerbeck's third place ensured the terminator remains at the top of the overall world rankings, with Ben Van Der Steen currently completing the podium positions.

"It's great to be back at the top of the podium. Alacati is always great we had wind almost everyday and we had some great racing. It's going to be another epic battle with Bjorn (Dunkerbeck) and I am already looking forward to Sylt, hopefully we get similar conditions", said Albeau.
