2019 Mercedes-Benz Aloha Classic - Day 3

Day 3: Light Cross-on Winds & a Macking Swell Makes For Extremely Slow Progress While Edging Offringa & Köster Closer To Respective World Titles

With the macking swell continuing into day three of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz Aloha Classic, and the trades showing early signs of kicking, the decision was made to begin the Men’s Double Elimination at 11am.

However, with the wind being cross onshore and light that made progress extremely slow going with just two heats being completed in two hours. Numerous heats were started, but with huge west sets closing out the channel, the decision was soon made to put the contest on hold with the conditions being deemed too dangerous to continue.
