Re: PWA Korea Slalom and Foil 2019

Matteo Iachino timing the shorebreak well on day 2. With a very bad result after being affected by others collisions in the first Event, he probably needs this event to produce a lot of good slalom racing to have a chance of getting back in contention this year. https://www.pwaworldtour.com/fileadmi...

Re: PWA Korea Slalom and Foil 2019

A teeny bit of action on Day 3. 2 Women's foil races completed with one victory each for Marion Mortefon and Delphine Cousin Questel. Even with the wind in a good direction and some sunshine, the wind didn't happen. That is the sum total of the first half of the event - we need something much better...

Re: PWA Korea Slalom and Foil 2019

Day 2 is another non-event, and sailors have been released for the day. Wind picked up around 4pm but was varying every way possible and there was lots of seaweed. Delphine heading out yesterday amongst the seaweed. https://www.pwaworldtour.com/fileadmin/user/main_editors/images/events/2019/Korea_20...

Re: PWA Korea Slalom and Foil 2019

Day 1 has been a washout. The rain seemed to kill the wind and though they sent the women out and they were foiling, a mixture of seaweed and shifty uncertain wind made fair racing unlikely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VOMSyUdK-3A&feature=youtu.be The forecast had looked like Day 1 was to be the...

PWA Korea Slalom and Foil 2019

They better hit the water ASAP in Ulsan, as the first day has the best wind forecast and it should be full on Slalom conditions. https://www.pwaworldtour.com/index.php?id=38&tx_pwaevent_pi1%5BshowUid%5D=283&cHash=e3b52413e476af2d55b6168a6e80da89 https://www.windguru.cz/208541 https://www.windfinder....

Re: PWA Japan 2019 Slalom and Foil

The Day 6 video from Japan. 2 Foiling eliminations for the women, but the men never got to run the Final for the 4th Elimination. 6 men in contention for the win - until the Final was cancelled. Thomas Goyard foiled and foiled and foiled to try to get them to run the Final, but he was foiled. https:...

Re: PWA Japan 2019 Slalom and Foil

Unfortunately Japan was a washout for Slalom. They had wind until the day before the event started and then there was only enough wind at times to run some foiling. Day 5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mThlRrL9TU As Thomas Goyard said, he and Kiran Badloe are doing well at foiling, but both of tho...

Re: PWA Japan 2019 Slalom and Foil

Day 3 was a lay day when the wind never turned up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0rKr8ThPJE Day 4 was about half as good as Day 2, with one Men's Elimination completed and two Women's Eliminations completed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iswPpoFlOFA In the Men's Thomas Goyard was the star of th...

Re: PWA Japan 2019 Slalom and Foil

Day two and the foiling starts in what was reported variously as between 4 and 10 knots, but it varied from race to race. No details as to the wind limit, but they might have been racing with 5 knot lulls. Unfortunately a lot of interference of the airwaves by outside sources in the area messed up t...
