The first IFCA Foil World Champion is Luuc Van Opzeeland NED-55 and Anna Sagulenko UKR-8 was crowned IFCA Foil Female Champion in Switzerland.
The 2019 IFCA Foil World Championship came to an end after 11 Races in light to medium winds, 3 discards and only 2 general recalls which was pretty smooth for the BIGGEST Start line – so far – of 71 Foil competitors during the Vanora Engadinwind by Dakine 2019. Thanks to all the brave flying competitors, the race committee, volunteers, the cool media crew in general and all the sponsors involved.
Everybody loves Venora Engadinwind on Lake Silvaplana, the good weather, the mountains, amazing landcape, and the event offers lots of fun. The Freestylers have had an awesome time entertaining the watching crowds with their fantastic tricks before the Foilers enjoyed their feeling of freedom flying across the lake in such majestic surroundings each day.
There was an enormous sense of anticipation on the Final Day with titles on the line. The wind filled in as usual and we had one race
A special mention for Anna Sagulenko UKR-8: she has been racing with the guys all week and takes home the IFCA Event title in the Women’s fleet.
What an amazing week we have had at the Vanora ENGADINWIND powered by Dakine!
