In the battle for third place, Cyril Moussilmani (F-71, Fanatic/ North Sails) defeated another Israeli sailor Eyal Shelef (ISR-43, Quatro/ Neil Pryde).

 

The Red Bull Storm Rider event has been another successful contest at Bat Galim, proving the excellent potential this place has to offer. Sadly the existence of Bat Galim beach has been under threat from real-estate developers, planning to build a huge marina and destroying the reef in the process.
