Cabo Verde World Cup – Trials Event Day 2

More from Josh Angulo on the dustup for the last 10 slots to the big event…

2007 Cabo Verde World Cup winner Josh Angulo (MauiSails) has been watching the potential qualifiers like a hawk, noting and earmarking any potential threats or banana skins for himself and the other top seeds.

'Day 2 of the trials saw no competition. Although a bit of swell was still running the Northerly wind direction didn’t bode well with 'Little Ho’okipa', prompting head judge Jerome Boggio-pasqua to release sailors at noon in hopes of getting some heats with the incoming swell tomorrow.

With tomorrow’s forecast there are a couple additional spots that have been added to the list of potential competition zones… let’s see what happens.

Nonetheless, Dario Ojeda (Quatro / Gaastra) and Dany Bruch (F2 / Gaastra) got the spear guns out and went out for a fishing session while World Champion Kauli Seadi (JP / NeilPryde) gave his girlfriend some windsurf lessons at the Angulo windsurf center.

A special shout out to Yann Sorlut (Simmer), Francisco Porcella (Simmer) and Diony Guadagnino (Mistral) who rigged up early in the morning and tested out the conditions. It’s always good to see motivated youth!’

Please check back in again tomorrow for another bit of insight from Josh.
