JYM Slalom Worlds, Hyeres - Serious Business on Day One!
Posted On: 12/04/2010 08:13:14
Serious business today with a wind from south-east expected to rise during the day to 25 knots although after the first briefing at 10am, with riders and organizers on standby for a first possible start at 11am, the wind was well oriented but painfully only 10 knots!
By 3pm the wind was strong, steady at 30 knots. The course was set with 3 buoys downwind for the finals in each category and a crowd had gathered to watch this exciting spectacle.
After a well deserved break, the competitors left the beach late afternoon for a second round and sailed into the evening. The wind eased slightly by the final stages but the whole world was excited to see the results . . . More
