Dor Zarka from the Eilat Sailing Club finished the Israeli Kate Foil Championship in first place and retained the title of Israeli Champion in the model, which he also won last year. Zerka won sixth place at the European Championships last year. In the women’s, Gal Zuckerman from the Sdot Yam sailing club won.
The championship, which took place in Eilat, was scheduled to take place from Thursday. Two windless days caused the cancellation of the first few days and finally it took place in excellent wind on Saturday in the format of the best of 6 cruises. Zohar Harubi started the competition strong with victories in the first two cruises, but later Zarka put up gear and finally secured his victory with a perfect sixth cruise, in which he won by a large margin.
The decision in the battle for second place was tense and close. Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/dor-zarka-won-the-israeli-championship-in-the-olympic-model.html
The last cruise ended in a photo-finish, with Dvir Azoulay falling right on the finish line. An appeal was later filed at the beach, in which an earlier cruise of Harubi was disqualified and it was determined that Azoulay wins second place.
The Kate Foil is a new model, which came in only a year ago and this is the second Israeli championship held in this model. Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/dor-zarka-won-the-israeli-championship-in-the-olympic-model.html
The foil is similar to a standard kite (paraglider), but at the bottom is a fin, which causes the surfboard to float above the water, greatly reduces friction and allows reaching speeds of up to 65 km / h. And the other are the twins Ido and Yoav Barzilai and the girls Gal Boker and Bar Zuckerman.
I hope you are in health and well.
