Just short of 2 world titles

Allison has just come third in the IFCA Slalom World Championships in Alacati, Turkey. After a stressful three days of waiting on shore for wind, the results from day two stood until the end, resulting in Verena Fauster (ITA) and Karin Jaggi (SUI) just pipping Allison for the slalom world title by one point.

Allison started well with a solid first place in race 1. With superior speed and a good start, she won by quite a margin in the 5 min down wind race. Race two Allison made a tragic mistake by missing the start of the race by two minutes, which in the end cost her the world title. She charged down the course to try and catch the others but only managed to pull back to 10th by the end of the race. Race three and hungry for another bullet, Allison put everything in and gained another 1st place, putting her back in the lead because she could then drop the 10th after the third race.

On day two there was slightly lighter winds from 11-15knots and in the gusty conditions it was difficult to choose the right gear to use. Race 4 started and with Karin, Verena and Allison all pushing for the lead at the first mark, it was Karin that pulled just ahead with the inside advantage. After the first mark the placings stayed the same until the end with Verena in 2nd and Allison in 3rd. While the mens fleet was being split again the race committe ran another race for the youth and women that turned out to be the deciding race for the competition. Allison took an 8.4m sail, while Verena had an 8.2m and Karin chose her 7.8m. In the gusty conditions it was Verena this time who got to mark one first, then Karin and Allison came from behind after an average start.  With all three pushing at each mark it was Verena who managed to hold on to the lead, and on the last reach Allison almost caught Karin but the reach was just a few metres too short so she was pipped on the finish line.

Verena has won her first world title with Karin and Allison trailing within one point of the 2006 Slalom world title.

Allison will head back to Australia now for one week before she goes to the RS:X Olympic test event in China.
