PWA World Cup JP Aloha Classic Day 3 – A lay day in Ho’okipa
by Vivienne Masters on 28 Oct 2013
On the PWA World Cup JP Aloha Classic third day extremely light winds meant that no competition was completed today. With a deteriorating forecast for the afternoon and a distinct lack of wind in the morning the sailors were released at 11am. However, it was still another beautiful day in Maui with wall-to-wall sunshine and a small swell still running, which tempted many of the locals out onto the water to enjoy the glorious weather.

The forecast for tomorrow is better than today with the wind back in the correct direction for the local effect to take control, if we are fortunate. Looking beyond tomorrow the forecast looks fantastic from Monday onwards with increasing wind and swell as the week progresses, which should translate into an amazing remainder of the contest.
On Sunday we will be having a look at the crunch battles, which sees some unbelievable ties including a few heats of death, ensuring upsets and drama that will make for riveting drama both on and off the water.
The skippers’ meeting tomorrow morning shall be held at 10am with the action commencing from 10:30am if conditions allow.
