New sponsors for some of the worlds top "windgirls" for 2010:

French Speed Queen Sarah Hebert, who had been riding Naish sails for three years now, will be on the Naish board line as well in the future. Sarah Quita Offringa will be leaving Neil Pryde for her part, (unconfirmed) rumors say. Iballa and Daida Ruano Moreno, in recent time sailing with North Sails and - remarkably enough - with no board sponsor at all, will be on Severne Sails from now on!
Iballa: "I am personally really happy to join this new team. I feel very motivated to train hard and keep defending my titles as well as promoting the sport in any way I can. Severne is a sail brand that suits us perfectly and the fact that they support top women of the sport really gives them extra points. We will work really hard to promote what it is now the best windsurfing sail brand." This means the twins will be in a strong team with Karin Jaggi, Nayra Alonso and others. One question is obvious: Will they manage to get into the Starboard team, too?
