Day 1 - PWA Slalom Finals - JAPAN - Highlights

Day 1: Registered, Rigged & Ready after a slow and rainy start to proceedings

The opening day of the 2023 Fly! ANA Yokosuka, Miura Windsurf World Cup saw a relatively quiet start to proceedings with the sailors registering for the contest during the morning followed by the official opening ceremony at 12:30pm.

There was a glimmer of hope that the afternoon would produce some racing with a spike in the wind on the forecast, and at around 3pm the wind did begin to pick up, which led to the sailors being called to the water with 5-11 knots on offer. However, a couple of starts in Heat 1 of the Mens Slalom saw two sailors eliminated for premature starts, while shortly afterwards the wind dropped back and with the light beginning to fade the sailors were released just before 4:15pm.

The forecast for tomorrow looks very promising with 20-29 knot north-northeast winds currently predicted for the morning, so with this in mind the skippers meeting has been called for 7:30am (GMT+9) with the action commencing from 8am onwards.
