GKA Kite-Surf World Cup Morocco 2021 - Day 2

by Gemma Hamaini 28 Oct 2021 18:22 PDT 27-31 October 2021

The traditional Dakhla winds failed to materialise in the early morning, so the competition was on hold until the early afternoon. At 14:00 the green flag went up and we blasted our way through Round 3 of the Women's Elimination.

The wind and wave conditions were marginal, but with a complicated forecast for the coming days, the race director, Juan Antonio Aragon, decided to start the heats. Considering how our last event in Denmark ended with no result due to lack of wind, the pressure is on to be able to run this final event of the year. Although not ideal, the conditions were deemed suitable to run the competition. Round 3 was completed for the women, and it's important to note that this is not an elimination round, and everyone still gets another chance in Round 4.

Advancing directly to Round 5 we saw Catharina Edin, Marcella Witt, Capucine Delannoy and Peri Roberts. In tough conditions, they each managed to make the most of the complicated situation. Advancing through in 1st position allows each of them to rest during Round 4.

The action will continue tomorrow with competition resuming as soon as the wind conditions are suitable.

Our live-stream will be running from the start of competition with all of the wave action, rider interviews and much more.
