Waking up on the final day, the wind was blowing strong but in the wrong direction making it offshore and shifty. The call was made to wait for the wind to swing and see what happens. With only one heat left to sail in round 7, and every podium place at stake, tensions were high on the beach. After waiting until 3pm, the wind kicked in and steady and racing was on. Pierre Mortefon showed why he was the 2019 World Champion, flying through to take the race victory and put himself in pole position. But the wind was in and here to stay, so why waste it! Round 8 was started, the wind was looking perfect like every day of the event. It looked like a steady 15-20 knots and perfect foiling conditions. Round 8 was started and the wind started to drop and go shifty so quickly everyone scrambled together their bigger gear – was this going to be a sad end to a great week? Of course not, Bol delivered and the wind kicked back in, and built quickly! As the riders headed back out for the semi-finals, gusty conditions encouraged bigger equipment choices but as the wind continued to increase, it was nothing less than chaos on the racecourse! Stakes were high, the wind was finally here and the stage was set for the ultimate showdown.
