Sail-World.com : PWA Cold Hawaii World Cup - Final day to be action packed
PWA Cold Hawaii World Cup - Final day to be action packed

The penultimate day of the PWA Cold Hawaii World Cup saw the wind return, which saw the majority of the fleet head out onto the water at some point, but unfortunately the waves didn’t arrive in time for the single elimination to be resumed. However, after several days of rest everyone was delighted to see action on the water again, as backloops and forward loops proved to be the moves of the day.

The focus now turns firmly towards tomorrow, which is set to see a full day of amazing action as the wind and waves return at full force, as Cold Hawaii prepares to explode into action to create a grandstand finale.

Earlier in the day we gained the thoughts from one of the next generation of wave sailors Alessio Stillrich (Fanatic / North / AL360), who will face Jules Denel (JP / NeilPryde) for the first time tomorrow in heat five tomorrow:

'If it was a little bit windier today then it might have been all right, but it just wasn't quite enough and the small waves weren't consistent enough. I've got Jules Denel in the first round and I've never sailed against him so it should be an interesting heat. The conditions look like they should be good tomorrow, maybe a bit too onshore, but it's the final day so we've got to go with what we've got. Lets see what happens.'

The current plan of action for tomorrow will be to run the first round of the single elimination as four man heats with a heat duration of fifteen minutes. From then onwards the competition will return to fourteen minute man-on-man heats, until a winner has been crowned.

Tomorrow’s forecast is still predicting excellent conditions with winds of up to 35 knots accompanied by waves of up to three meters by 5pm, which should generate brilliant cross-on jumping and riding conditions, giving the most radical sailors in the world the opportunity to truly showcase their skills as they launch into gravity defying stunts. Will Thomas Traversa (Tabou / Gaastra) be able to defend his Cold Hawaii crown?

The skippers’ meeting for tomorrow will be held at 8am with the action commencing from 08:30am.
