THERE were still a few winners on Tiree last week despite a lack of wind during this year’s Wave Classic.
Star windsurfer Ben Proffitt has made it an unprecedented three Tiree Wave Classic wins in a row,with his thrilling ‘expression session’ masterclass enough for the Shropshire star to secure first place in the pro fleet.
Patience was needed though,with the weather proving fickle throughout the six days of competition.
Ben,one of several world-class competitors to make the trip,said:‘This week’s been hard but let’s not forget we’ve had a result in every category,so Tiree’s delivered again and to win it for the third time it does feel good.’
