Fly! ANA Yokosuka PWA World Cup

First thing this morning things looked quite promising with a moderate onshore breeze on offer, however, shortly after the skippers’ meeting the wind began to deteriorate an it never really showed much sign of filling back in on the third day of the Fly! ANA Yokosuka PWA World Cup despite a swing back to the south during the afternoon.

Shortly after the competition was called off for the day several sailors headed out for a free sail on their foils, and while that was possible, it was clearly evident that conditions were a long way from being able to race.

Looking Ahead

The forecast for Monday looks quite similar to Saturday’s forecast, which allowed 2 Men’s and 4 Women’s Foil Eliminations to be completed, with the gradient wind expected to return to the south-southeast, which should hopefully allow the local thermal effect to kick in again.

Looking slightly further ahead the current forecast for Tuesday offers the hope of producing conditions suitable for the Slalom fleet with the latest model offering moderate to fresh breezes between 12-23 knots from the south-southeast.

The fleets will meet again at 10am tomorrow morning for the skippers’ meeting with the racing commencing from 11am (GMT+8) onwards - if conditions allow.
