PWA Youth World Cup
The first edition of the Victor Fernandez Center Club PWA Youth World Cup, which was held between the 2nd-5th January, proved to be highly successful with results being gained in every age category in the wave discipline, but unfortunately no result was gained in the slalom discipline.
Over the course of the 4 day event 38 of the world’s most promising youth’s, from 7 different countries, registered for the contest and after a quiet few days the last day provided the action.
In the end Henri Kolberg (Starboard / Hot Sails Maui) took the victory ahead of Miguel Chapuis (JP / NeilPryde) and Titouan Flechet in the Males Under 20s, while Tessa Van der Meer saw off her sister - Nikki Van der Meer - in the Girls Under 20s - while Regina Villegas completed the podium.
In the highly competitive Male Under 17s Division local boy Jose Casanova (Fanatic / NorthSails) was able to defeat Pozo local Marino Gil (Goya Windsurfing) and those two look set for an enthralling battle over the remainder of the season. In the Girls U17s Mar de Arce took top honours ahead of Maria Morales (Quatro / Goya Windsurfing) and Sara Coll and Elena Cantón, who shared 3rd.
In the two youngest divisions - Under 15s and 13s - Neuba Lennart and Tobias Andersen recorded wins, while in the overall rankings Miguel Chapuis took first place ahead of José Casanova and Marino Gil.
