In the Kitefoil Open Masters World Championship, Turkey’s Ejder ‘EJ’ Ginyol continues a strong comeback as he tries to close the gap to series leader Billy Guy-Maupas from France. “It was a tough day,” said Ginyol. “The competition didn't start very well for me. The first day, my mind was a little bit out of focus because last week I twisted my knee and I was so nervous over the last week. Would I be fit enough? I rested as much as I could. I didn't walk, I didn't train, I didn't do any practice. But then on the first day I made lots of mistakes.

Then over the last two days it has gone much better. But Billy is also a very, very strong guy. We’re having a good battle. It's so nice to race with him and also the Danish rider James Johnsen [now in third overall].”

In the women’s Masters fleet, Thailand’s Benyapa Jantawan continues to hold top spot ahead of Monika Zizlavska from the Czech Republic.

The regatta moves into the final two days of competition this weekend, with the dramatic Medal Series set to decide the podium winners on Sunday. Tune in to watch the livestream starting at 1200 hours Central European Time on Saturday, direct from Torregrande Beach.
