Annabel dominates Round 7 of the Stand Up World Series

 

Annabel leading in San Fran

Annabel Anderson (Starboard) impressed the world on Day 1 of the Stand Up World Series event in San Francisco by leading the entire fleet through the hardest leg of the Long distance course, going into wind up to the Golden Gate Bridge and not only winning the Women's but finishing in 5th place in the men's division - an incredible achievement given the caliber of the athletes at the AC Open.

The second day presented new challenges as the sprint racing got underway, and in the first race, Annabel and Jenny Kalmbach (Naish) get caught up round the first buoy, allowing Jenny to break away, and maintain the lead to take race one of three for the Women's Division.

Race 2 saw Annabel take the win, and then in Race 3, another buoy pile up on buoy 2 saw Halie Harrison (Focus SUP) break away to take the lead. However, Annabel and Jenny both recover fast to catch up by the 3rd buoy and take the lead by the 4th. In the end, Annabel once again proves victorious, taking the win in both the long distance and sprint racing to make it a clean sweep once again here at Stop 7 of the 2013 Stand Up World Series.
