Hanging loose in Alaçatı

By Cornucopia Blog | August 26, 2013


With 41 world titles to his name, the Danish-Dutch-born Bjørn Dunkerbeck (left) is an icon of the windsurfing world, and one of the most successful professional athletes alive. He was among the galaxy of windsurfing stars in Alaçatı last week for the five-day PWA Pegasus Airlines World Cup, part of the PWA World Tour. And where were the TV cameras to record the thrills and spills, may we ask? Presumably sport without property deals isn't fair game for today's TV barons. Hang loose, or shocka, as they say with this Hawaiin Island non-verbal greeting. This year's event was tough, with fickle winds, false starts and drifting buoys, according to reports. The winners were Antoine Albeau and Delphine Cousin, who clinched her maiden world cup title. (Photograph: Derya Torolsan)
