By | All news, Laser Radial, RS-X Men | No Comments

MEDEMBLIK, 27 MEI – Zaterdag worden de prijzen pas verdeeld bij de Delta Lloyd Regatta, maar windsurfer Dorian van Rijsselberghe en Marit Bouwmeester (Laser-Radial) hoeven op de slotdag van het grootste zeilevenement in Nederland alleen maar het water op te gaan om de hoofdprijs op te halen. Bouwmeester won vrijdag twee races en het gat met de Belgische Emma Plasschaert is zo groot dat de medalrace de volgorde zaterdag niet meer kan veranderen. ,,Het is altijd goed om je hoogste niveau te halen. En dat heb ik hier deze week gedaan”, zei Bouwmeester, die vorig jaar ook al won. Bouwmeester…

Bouwmeester blijft aan kop in Delta Lloyd Regatta

By | Laser Radial | No Comments

Marit Bouwmeester heeft op de tweede dag van de Delta Lloyd Regatta haar leidende positie in de Laser Radial-klasse behouden. Waar ze dinsdag op de openingsdag twee keer won, moest de Friezin zich een dag later onder totaal andere omstandigheden tevreden stellen met een vierde en derde plaats. Het was voldoende om de koppositie te behouden. ,,Het was compleet anders dan gisteren, toen er flinke wind stond en er veel golven waren. Nu was het water vlak en was er amper wind. Ze hebben twee races kunnen afwerken en dat is knap’’, zei de nummer één van het tussenklassement na…

WINNER: Murphy’s mistake gives Bouwmeester an easy gold

By | Laser Radial, News | No Comments

Marit Bouwmeester has defended her title at the Delta Lloyd Regatta, winning the Medal Race and taking the gold by a comfortable margin. Ireland’s Annalise Murphy was expected to put up a stronger challenge to the Netherlands’ Olympic silver medallist from 2012, but even in her favourite strong breezes, Murphy was unable to make an impact. Uncharacteristically, Murphy capsized on the second upwind leg, and any real threat to Bouwmeester disappeared. The Irish sailor held on for silver, with Belgium’s Evi van Acker taking bronze.
