JYM Slalom Worlds, Hyeres - Where's the Wind?
Posted On: 12/04/2010 19:19:12
With a rather pessimistic wind forecast for Tuesday onwards, the Race Committee intended to get in the maximumum amount of racing possible and at the scheduled start time of 11.00 it was looking good - 13 to 16 knots on the water.
The women completed race 4 and Olivia Piana beat Alice Arutkin and Marie Airault with Pole Agnieska Bilska in fourth.
The men were working through their qualifying rounds but sadly, before the semi-finals could begin, the wind dropped significantly and competitors were sent ashore to wait. After a couple of hours, as the wind flirted with the occasional 12 knots, the race committee decided to throw in the towel.
