Ulsan PWA World Cup - The most talked about incidents of day 2

Day three of the Ulsan PWA World Cup started with extremely light winds in the morning, however, over the course of the morning the wind swung cross-shore and the conditions started to look much more promising. The wind continued to tease the competitors over the duration of the day, but extremely gusty winds put a spanner in the works and no heats could be completed today. After a long day on hold the sailors were eventually released at 5pm.

With the sailors playing the waiting game we caught up with Josh Angulo (Angulo / Gun Sails) - who was involved in one of the most talked about incidents of day two.

PWA: What are your thoughts on the whole incident with Cedric Bordes (Tabou / Gaastra) yesterday?
JA: 'From yesterday to today things are pretty different. It often happens in racing that in the heat of the moment you get pretty upset with whatever has been going on, but it’s no big deal. He (Bordes) Bordes hit me, it wasn’t malicious and he didn’t try to do it. It definitely cost me some places and at an event like this where we aren’t guaranteed lots of races every place matters. I let him know what I thought, so he knows and I know he didn’t mean to, so it’s all good.

PWA: In the close season you moved back to Gun Sails, are you feeling happy with your setup?
JA: 'For sure I am, I’ve got really good gear as everybody obviously does. Every year it’s getting more and more competitive, but I feel that over the course of the year with the different conditions that I’ll be able to do well, as my gear works so well over a wide range of conditions, which I think is really important. I’m fired up and just having fun and definitely once again very blessed to be hanging here on the beach windsurfing.'

PWA: Which equipment were you on yesterday?
JA: 'I rode my 9.5m and 8.7m with both my large and medium board combined with a few different fins. I was switching around quite a bit as the conditions were quite variable.'

PWA: Aims for the season?
JA: 'My aims are always to win. I always believe that I can beat pretty much anyone in the world on a windsurf board because that’s what I’ve been doing all my life. I also understand that it takes a lot of dedication, so I try to allot more and more time for windsurfing, since I do have the support from my sponsors to do it and I still believe that I can win. I definitely wouldn’t be here if I thought I’m only gonna get tenth or twelfth or something you know. I’m aiming for the top.'

PWA: Are you still located in Boston? And do you get to windsurf much in Boston?
JA: 'Yep I just flew here from there! I do, and right now it’s the time of year when it’s just starting to warm up. I also did a couple of training trips to Maui before this event, as I can do so much more specific testing, easily in Maui and crucially with the right people. So now I’ll be able to do maintenance windsurfing in Boston.'

PWA: Thanks Josh and good luck for the remainder of the event.

The forecast for tomorrow is predicting wind from the opposite direction in the morning, so with this in mind the skippers’ meeting has been called for 08:30am with the action commencing from 9am.
