Sarah-Quita Offringa has conquered her third PWA Slalom World Tour title, at Hvide Sande, in Denmark. As Peter Jordens indicates, it’s her 3rd slalom world title — 12th world title overall — and her 2nd world title this season after winning her 9th freestyle world crown earlier this year [thanks, Peter, for bringing this item to our attention]. Here are excerpts from Surfer Today.

The windsurfer from Aruba added another trophy to her long list of accomplishments. Despite being known for her freestyle skills, Offringa continues to impress in the races.

“I’m very happy. I was emotional when the event was officially called off because it’s been a stressful day with the conditions right on the edge, so it was pretty nerve-wracking,” said Offringa, who had previously won slalom world titles in 2011, and 2015.

The 25-year-old sailor has already freestyle world champion for nine times, and she is also participating in wave windsurfing events on the PWA World Tour. “It’s great to see so many girls competing at such a high level and hopefully that’s a good sign for the future. Thanks to all of my sponsors and much love to my family and friends for their non-stop support.” [. . .]
