PWA Cold Hawaii World Cup - Waiting game continues on day 4

At the PWA Cold Hawaii World Cup, the waiting game continued on day four as light winds and small waves kept the competition on hold for another day. The Cold Hawaii wave machine also took a slight break today after two days of brilliant waves, hopefully recharging for the weekend, which now holds a lot of promise.

There was plenty of action on the water throughout the day though with a combination of windsurfing and SUPing. At 2pm two teams battled it out in the SUP Race Challenge in the best of three races - in the end local boys Christian Andersen, Peter Steinfath and Oliver Hartkopp secured an emphatic victory as they won the first two rounds by a convincing margin.

At 5:30pm a threatening big, black cloud approached Cold Hawaii, prompting a flurry of action on the beach as sailors from heat two rushed to prepare for their heat. However, the wind that accompanied the squall proved too brief for any competition to be attempted. Earlier in the afternoon Peter Volwater (Fanatic / Avanti) and Kurosh Kiani (Fanatic / Simmer / Maui Ultra Fins) hit the water on their slalom gear, whilst Ben Proffitt (Simmer) and Alessio Stillrich (Fanatic / North / AL360) made the most of the small waves on offer in float and ride conditions.

The latest forecast currently shows promise for the weekend - particularly Sunday - with westerly winds of up to 25 knots being predicted along with a swell of 1.7 meters, which will hopefully allow a grandstand finale, ultimately ending with the new 2013 Cold Hawaii champion being crowned.

Head Judge Duncan Coombs: 'The latest forecasts definitely show that there are some wind and waves on the way, there is just some disagreement about whether Saturday or Sunday will be the windier day on the different forecast models. However, either way it looks as though we should have the opportunity to gain a result in Denmark. If Sunday proves to be the windier day then we will still have the whole day to compete, and we’ll sail till dark if we need to.'

Tomorrow looks as though it will be a relaxed day as Cold Hawaii prepares to burst back into life for the weekend. The skippers’ meeting tomorrow will be held at 10am with the first possible start at 10:30am.
