Marignane PWA World Cup

The wind teased the competitors for much of Day 4, but unfortunately despite several hours of effort only a further two heats were able to be completed in the men’s first elimination. There were short periods of wind, but with the breeze continuing to blow offshore the wind remained very patchy, which made racing tricky to say the least.

Marignane PWA World Cup

There were two contrasting forecasts for the third day of the 2019 Marignane PWA World Cup and unfortunately the model predicting less wind was the correct one. On several occasions the wind did appear as though it would kick in, but those periods of wind proved too brief to allow any further racing to be completed.

While the wind remained light several sailors sneaked out on to the water for a bit of testing, while visitors to the event were able to bask in the warm sunshine.

Marignane PWA World Cup

The opening day of the 2019 Marignane PWA World Cup saw the sailors receive a warm welcome upon arrival, but unfortunately the racing remained on hold with the wind teetering on the edge for much of the afternoon. That meant that several sailors ventured out on to the water to tune up a little bit ahead of tomorrow’s expected wind.

29 girls have signed up for the women’s contest, which is one of the biggest fleets in recent years, while there is a full 64-man fleet in the men’s division. With the wind remaining light the sailors were eventually released …več
