From June 1st - 5th the Allianz Regatta took place in Lelystad. This was the 3rd World Cup of the season and a great moment for Annelous and her teammates from KiteFoil TeamNL to measure themselves with the best on home waters. Annelous had an amazing start on day 1 winning all 4 races. The following days she had more competition from the other women, but still had an amazing week.
After 4 days and 15 races in the openingseries she qualified for the 4 women's final in first place. In the final races it is all about taking the win. Annelous had to win once to take home the Gold, the Spanish Gisela who qualified in 2nd place had to win twice and the two Israeliers Maya and Gal both had to win three times in order to take home the gold.
Annelous managed to get a good start and rounded the topmark in 1st place. "The game plan I made with Casper (coach) worked out, but it was super tight racing and the second part of the race Gal was right behind me and etting closer and closer. The pressure was on from before the race and it felt really good to win the first race and win my first ever racing world cup."
