WingFoil Racing World Cup Turkiye

The Mental Challenge of a Plastic Minefield

Some riders complained about plastic in the water ruining their races on day three of the WingFoil Racing World Cup Turkiye. Others found a way of winning race after race despite the plastic obstacles lying in wait to catch them out.

The men were competing in three qualifying groups and Kamil Manowiecki was making good progress in blue group in the morning session, scoring 3,2,1. After lunch the Polish rider scored three straight bullets and pulled up to fourth overall behind two French competitors, Mathis Ghio in first and Julien Rattotti in second, and Italy’s Alessandro Tomasi in third.

Çinar, a four-time Olympic representative for Turkey in the 470 dinghy, says the uptake of wingfoiling in the local area and in Turkey generally is increasingly rapidly. We have 40 kids who are now wingfoiling in the region, including Kenan [Ersoy, aged 12] who is competing this week. We had 25 at the National Championships and next year I think we will have more than 50.”

With plans for this event to become a regular part of the Wingfoil Racing World Cup calendar, no doubt more young Turkish riders will be joining Ersoy on the start line next year.
