Here is the press release from the event organisers XPLG for day three of the EFPT finale:
Not just big in action but also in names turning up to show their support for the event. Nick Dempsey (Olympic silver medallist) and Ross Williams (Formula World Champion and number one UK rider on the PWA World Tour both in waves and slalom), found themselves watching on as spotlights lit up Weymouth Beach during the night tow-in super session supported by Red Bull.
With a 9am skippers meeting, the day got off to a prompt start. Unusual north-easterlies filled the harbour but provided some nice small ramps for the competitors to launch off of as they spun through their heats. Rick Jendrusch showed one of the most impressive performances as he fought his way back through a number of heats and dispatched of some world class talent on the way. In one heat he managed to land over 15 moves in the 7 minute time frame and sail in with dry hair. Taking home a well deserved fourth place, Jendrusch found his form in this competition and will certainly be a force to be reckoned with in the next years… For more information on the day, go to the EFPT website.
