2009 PWA Ulsan World Cup

Day 5: Rankings remain the same after day five was spent on standby.

A warm, sunny start to day five’s skippers meeting showed signs of promise for the day ahead, however a lingering heat-haze looked like it might interfere with proceedings.

As the hours ticked by with only very light wind, it became apparent that the haze in the atmosphere was lowering temperatures too much for the local thermal wind to take effect.

Despite the racers waiting patiently on standby, day five was eventually called to an end with no racing completed. Two days of competition remain before the 2009 PWA Ulsan World Cup winners are crowned. Here are the rankings as they stand at the close of day five:
