Pump it up!
For the fourth round Race Director Juan Antonio Aragon decided to add a short pumping element in the last reach to the finish, which turned out to be a prelude to some exciting battles.
With the fourth round being the last round of the event, Olivia Piana (FRA) had already secured her European title. This didn’t stop her from stomping another perfect score though, earning her a clean sheet of 2.1 points over three races (including one discard). Behind her, the fight for second was an exhilarating one. Coming into this day, Bowien van der Linden (NLD) was leading by 3.5 points over Flora Artzner (FRA), however, the discount of the fourth round meant it was still all to play for. Olivia once again had a perfect start, flying over the line and jibing smoothly, followed by Flora, Bowien, Maaike Huvermann (NLD), Marion Mattia (FRA) and the rest of the ladies. It was on the second reach that disaster struck for Bowien, who crashed, easing the pressure for Flora, who comfortably rode it out to finish second behind an on fire Olivia, who made the pump track look easy.
