Event directors wasted no time jumping right into competition today. Shortly after the skipper's meeting, the heat order picked up where we left off from yesterday. We progressed through Youth, Amateur, and Women's divisions today - finishing up their single eliminations and moving into the double eliminations for some.
Here's a recap of the Single Elimination results for the four completed divisions:
WOMEN: 1. Junko Nagoshi 2. Anne-Marie Reichman 3. Ingrid Larouche 4. Shawna Cropas
MASTERS: 1. Jeff Henderson 2. Giampaolo Cammarota 3. Yasuhito Ogasawara 4. Rob Funk
YOUTH: 1. Morgan Noireaux 2. Bernd Roediger 3. Zane Schweitzer 4. Ridge Lenny
AMATEURS 1. Jehyug Jay Lee 2. Neil Turpin 3. Jordan Reid 4. Nick Dudet
The Expert division still has three heats in round three, two heats in the semi-final round, and a final heat yet to run before their single elimination is completed. Postponing the Expert division is in hopes that the wave size increases and the wind remains steady - two factors that could make for a very exciting final heat.
People's Choice Expression Session was today around 4:30 in the afternoon. Fans tuned in to watch online then texted their votes for the windsurfer they felt impressed them the most. Jordan Reid came out on top to become the first ever People's Choice Champion. His prize package includes 2012 American Windsurfing Tour Event Registration, Dakine Wheeled Duffle, Chinook Pro Carbon Boom, and an afternoon Hookipa Photoshoot with high resolution DVD by Jimmie Hepp. Way to go Jordan!
It would be great to see you all at the beach tomorrow as we try to wrap up as many final rounds as we can get through. Stop by or tune in online at www.americanwindsurfingtour.com/live-4
