 Windsurfing - PWA World Tour - Slalom - Hvide Sande DEN - Day 5 A strom depression over Denmark brought rain and an up to 50 kn wind yesterday and the two Eliminations were clearly an affair of the big-breeze specialists.

In the women, Delphine Cousin FRA was twice on first reducing the gap on the still leading Sarah-Quita Offringa NED/Aruba to 0,7 pts.
