Sarah-Quita Offringa & Amado Vrieswijk Emerge as Early Season World Title Race Leaders After 5 Scintillating Day in Bonaire

Bonaire is dubbed as the spiritual home of Freestyle and over the last 5 days, you can understand why with the world’s best Freestylers channeling its relaxed Caribbean atmosphere and taking full advantage of Bonaire’s world class conditions to provide a scintillating, and sometimes unpredictable, start to the season…


Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) was pushed all the way by vice-world champion - Maaike Huvermann (Starboard / Severne / Maui Ultra Fins), who became the first woman in 11 years to win a heat against Offringa on the PWA Freestyle World Tour, but eventually it was still the 11-time Freestyle World Champion who would walk away from Bonaire as the event champion. Having not faced in defeat in so long, many people wondered how Offringa would cope in the Super Final, but she barely put a foot wrong as she posted the second highest scoring heat of the contest with 140.7 points.


Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne) may have had to do things the hard way, but eventually, the 23-year-old deservedly claimed the top spot on the podium to make the perfect start in the bid for his first world title. A second round exit in the single elimination meant that Vrieswijk then faced a gruelling fight back through the double elimination, but it was evidently a fight that he relished as he won 10 consecutive heats to deservedly be crowned the King of Bonaire. Vrieswijk consistently posted heats scores over 180 points - and was the only sailor to achieve this feat - so there can be no complaints that the best man won. Having defeated his major rival, 9-time Freestyle World Champion - Gollito Estredo (Fanatic / Duotone) - in just the second round of the double elimination it now seems the path by finally be opening up for Vrieswijk to get his hands on the biggest trophy of them all.
