The Women’s Semi-Finals saw a delighted Marcella Witt defeat Catharina Edin in a light wind battle, locking down her spot in the final. This was then followed by young Capucine Delannoy, who knocked out Peri Roberts during the second Semi-Final, scoring an amazing 8.63 points for her 5th wave.
An attempt was made to run the Women’s Final between Capucine Delannoy and Marcella Witt, but the sun went down making it extremely hard for both the riders and the judges, meaning the final heat was cancelled.
The final result for the Women here in Dakhla is joint 1st place for Marcella Witt and Capucine Delannoy, and joint 3rd place for Catharina Edin and Peri Roberts.
The prize giving ceremony was held at the Dakhla conference center, and was attended by all of the crew, athletes and local authorities.
