A perfect second day of racing here in Torbole for the Kona Worlds: a great battle for the top positions
A clear day with a stable South wind makes possible to have other 4 valid races for these Kona World Championships: this is the report of the second day of race with a wonderful light between the water and the beautiful mountains, which always impressed the tourists who came to Garda Trentino for the first time. So everything goes right at Circolo Surf Torbole with almost 80 competitors from 14 nations and also the Italian Olympic team here to practice for the RS:X Worlds that are going to be hosted here in Torbole in one month
The fleet seems to be divided: the ones who are here simply to have fun and the ones who are here to have a good time but also to compete for a World title. With the 5th race there is the chance to discard the worst result and this manages to switch up the top of the ranking: with the races of Friday the Dutch Tak shown he wants to take back the title won in 2016. With four bullets he manages to be on top of the provisional ranking, 4 points ahead from the Danish Tim Aagesen (three second positions and one third for him today) who is now second. Third position for the Norwegian Thomas Martinsen, with 10 points less. The American Alexander Temko dropped to the fourth overall position, but always first U18, followed by the compatriot Maverick Putnam. Among the women, the Canadian Andree Gauthier is still leading, second and third place for the Swedish Johanna Hjertberg and Lovisa Toft, in order. A woman is also leading the Silver fleet, a category that makes a shorter course with a single lap: the American Anna Vasta is clearly ahead, followed by the Dutch Lucien Van Delst.
