 Windsurfing - PWA World Tour 2017 - Super Grand Slam - Sylt GER - Day 9 The wind on Sylt GER has been sufficient for a short moment only to start some heats for the Women Wave specialists, but the slackening breeze delayed the crucial runs on today. Iballa Moreno ESP stays on top with Daida Mereno and Sarah-Quita Offringa NED (Aruba) as remaining challengers for the title. Will there be enough wind today? The forecast is not very promising.
