Congratulations to Adam Sims for his UK Championship Title!
Adam Sims: “Of course I’m super happy to win this event, we had enough wind to compete and it was good to finally have an event on UK waters again. The level of the guys coming into the comp was super high and everyone wanted the win, in the end I was pleased with how I sailed given that I didn’t really like the conditions (or the number of people in the competition area…) and to be honest I can’t believe I made another podium, I truly thought it could be anyone’s game before and during the comp. Thanks to those that made the event happen and the support of my sponsors throughout 2015, it’s been a sick year so far!
The close up is a move called a bob clock, I never saw someone do this in a heat and it kind of happened purely through my experience of freestyle, I wanted to go for a bob but my experience after I had ducked the sail told me that there is no chance I can get the original move so my body took over and tried the bob clock. I’ve landed it a lot in free-sailing but never tried it in competition. It’s not a power move at all but for some reason I was pretty stoked after this one small light wind move, maybe because of the cheers of appreciation from the beach :-).”

Tow-in took centre stage again today with the final, consisting of yesterday’s top six sailors, taking place at 2:30pm. The wind did pick up slightly in the late afternoon, but a beach check soon revealed that the swell hadn’t improved to enough to allow the start of the main contest.
Congratulations to one of our freestyle youngsters Mats Moyson who became 2nd at the IFCA Junior Freestyle World Championship and won the IFCA Junior Freestyle Championship!
Mats: “We only had 1 day of wind at the 2015 IFCA Junior & Youth Freestyle/wave world championship in Denmark. In the Youth division I fought my way up to the winners final against Amado Vrieswijk. I’m superstoked with my vice worldchampion title.
I’m also very happy with my first place in the Junior division. We sailed in good winds and sunny conditions and I had a lot of confidence in my heats. My goal was a podiumplace U17 but a second place U20 gives me a lot of confidence in the future.”
Congratulation to PATRIK Team rider Marion Mortefon for her 2nd place at the Alacati PWA World Cup and her first PWA podium in her young career.
After five days the Volvo Surf Cup on Sylt (Germany) came to an end with a great result for the PATRIK Team.

Lena Erdil becomes IFCA Worldchampion
In the Women’s fleet Turkish Lena Erdil (TUR-33) was able to dominate. She won six out of seven races and is therefore rightful „IFCA Slalom Women Champion 2015“.
„We did a total of 7 finals and I managed to win 6 of them! We had challenging conditions with big swell and light winds but I felt really in control and on top of my game. It was my first time in Sylt and despite it being a lot colder then what I expected I really enjoyed the racing this week!“
Nicolas Warembourg (FRA-531) from France became 3rd place with 4,0 points. In two races he conquered the second place. Once he got sixth.
„I had hard fights with Vincent Langer and Sebastian Kornum. My target was a podium finish. And this is what I was able to achieve. Therefore I am very happy about my result at the IFCA Slalom World Championship on Sylt.“ says the French Warembourg.
Gunnar Asmussen secured his 4th place in Slalom at the World Championship and the overall win at the VOLVO Surf Cup Sylt.

From May 14th to 17th, 1,200 windsurfers have written the legend in Gruissan by taking part in the biggest and most challenging windsurfing race ever. The famous Tramontana was actually blowing like hell on the four amazing but very difficult marathon races. Only 862 entrants managed to complete the course at least once over the 4 days of racing! After more than 100 km of racing against competitors and themself in this pretty challenging conditions. Marion Mortefon won with her PATRIK slalom 87 the ladies competition – Lena Erdil became 3rd and Karin Jaggi 4th. Nicolas Warembourg got a super 2nd Place! Congratulations!!!
But more than a competition, t he Défi Wind is an unique “meet and greet” where pros and amateurs meet each others while sharing their passion for windsurfing.
