Danish Open Windsurf Wave and Freestyle Championship 2023 week 42.
Day. 1Storm and huge waves for the first day of Danish Open Windsurf Wave/Freestyle Championship 2023 week 42. After a quick registration at Surf Club NASA, the whole circus moved to Fiskemel in Hansholm for a skipper meeting and an eye-opener for many, because there was really a lot of action in the stormy gale up to 27 m/s, huge waves on the outside and well-shaped on the inside. A wave started, everyone else was exempted for the rest of the day. Most sailors were on their smallest equipment, that is 3.0 and 3.4 🙂 But they fought well in the sometimes unstable wind. In the third round, there were many familiar faces, and the biggest surprises were probably that Henri Kolberg knocked out Liam Dunkerbeck and moved on to the quarterfinals, Kenneth Danielsen also moved on with a victory over Anton Richter, and Tobias Bjørnaa took the win against Bjørnå Senior, who then had to admit defeat by 0.5 points and cash in his lowest ranking outside the top 4 in the last 20 years. The youth must come to 🙂 The last man on was Leon Jamaer, who beat a well-sailing Simon Thule. Semifinals and finals were right on and hard with a super show, where they showed fine wave rides and high impressive jumps. The top ranking after round 1 was: 1. Leon Jamaer 2. Kenneth Danielsen 3. Tobias Bjørnaa 4. Henri Kolberg Dag 2: Danish Open Windsurf Wave/Freestyle Championship 2023, uge 42 Nu med mere moderat vind, kun omkring 40 knob 🙂 Men blå himmel og gode bølger, der ruller ind på stranden i Fiskemel og så med en god gang action. Wave B var på programmet, og de fik sejlet 1, runde i gode forhold med fine heats og sjov på vandet. Day. 5 Danish Open Windsurf Wave/Freestyle Championship 2023 Women 17.10.2023 Side-on wind and waves around 2m were on the menu for the women, with 10 to 12 m/s and sunshine, but fading fast. In the first heat, Sol Degrieck passed Runa Krubbenhöft and Sol faced Caroline Weber, passing by a small margin and made it to the final. On the other side, Sybille Bode met Stine Bøttern, both having a hard heat but Stine showcasing some of the better wave riding, making it to the final with Sol. In the small final with fading light and nice sailing, Caroline Weber took 3rd place. In the final, we saw good action and a first place Day 6 and it was all about Freestyle at the Danish Open Wave and Freestyle championship 2023. An early start this time in Krik, with a strong easterly wind, skippers meeting and on with the first round of the A fleet, most sailors on their 4.0 and 4.2 fully powered up, the first round’s biggest upset was probably Italian Christian Ferraro making it to second position knocking out many A-fleet regulars and having a great time on the water and only stopped by Rasmus Øgelund who took first place, in the small final it was Anton Richter third and Kasper Gaj in fourth place, with some great sailing. Next up was Youth U20 Freestyle. A strong field of sailors with many top wave sailors in the line up too. It was great sailing and good action making it to the top 4 were Spanish Carlos Kiefer Quintana vs Italian Samuele Ferraro and Tobias Bjornaa vs Anton Aalborg, after a tense final and small final it was Samuele first followed by Tobias then Carlos and in fourth Anton. Despite cold hands and wet wetsuits it was directly into the double A-fleet and here was the biggest upset Noah Willumsen moving from second round all the way to the finale against Rasmus Øgelund, but Øgelund rejecting and standing on his first place and it’s Noah second, Christian Ferraro third, Anton Richter fourth, thanks for the show guys it was fun watching. In the Youth it was a comeback for German Anton Richter passing 6 heats and taking first place, what a great achievement and nice sailing next in line it was Samuele and Tobias Bjornaa. And then it was over and out for sailing Danish Open in 2023 we had a great year with results in all three events of the year, and now it’s just to thank everyone that helped us and supported us without you we couldn’t do this, thanks and see you next year.
