“I´m super happy to win the foil event in the Azores. It was the last race of the year and a test of performance against the world elite in foiling before we all start our winter training. It was an extremely challenging race for 4 days and 11 races. I started the week strong in light winds and could defend my advantage even in winds up to 35 knots until the end. It was a tight race looking at the points, but I kept my 1st place at the end of every single day. The conditions where challenging. Strong, gusty winds with lots of wind shifts and rolling swell entering the race course made it tough to make the right tactical decisions. Every downwind I had to decide when to gybe or which side to take for the next upwind.
