2023 Madeira SUP Challenge – Euro Tour SUP

The stormy weather was kind to the Madeira SUP Challenge over the past weekend with Duna Gordillo and Clement Colmas taking the win for women and mens divisions.

*Press Release: EuroTour SUP

On the women side Duna Gordillo gave no chances and led from start to finish in a very dominant performance. The ever impressive Anna Tschirky paddled alone all race in a convincing 2nd place, continuing her presence at all podiums this season. A bit farther adrift came the veteran Petronella Van Malsen in third, convincingly holding off Emily Evans in 4th on her first #eurotour2023 podium. The local hero Veronica Silva closed the top 5 in yet her 3rd consecutive podium.

On the men side we had an epic battle for the win and Clement Colmas showed why he’s regarded as one of the best downwind paddlers as he impressively pulled away from Ty Judson who came in 2nd. Another great performance by Christian Andersen in third who clearly excels in the rough conditions. Always in the front pack all race, local hero Tomas Lacerda with renewed strength finished 4th. Not far behind and in his best #eurotour result was Ollie Houghton closing the international top 5.

In the afternoon we had the Junior races, with a great turnout from all over the country, and many doing a fantastic job in the Elite race, showing bright future in the sport. On Sunday we had the always entertaining team relay race & award ceremony.
