2009 PWA Ulsan World Cup

Day 6: Driving rain extinguished the hope of any wind on competition’s penultimate day.

Competitors were greeted by torrential rain as they left for the beach on day six. As forecast, the downpour persisted for the best part of the day, in turn killing off any hope of starting competition.

The past two days have been a frustrating affair, with those in desperate need of points to improve their event rankings feeling the frustration the most. As time on the clock looks to come to an end, the final day of competition is now their last hope.

Current forecasts give a grim outlook for the prospect of wind on day seven, however Jinha Beach frequently receives wind from a local thermal effect that does not show up on forecasts.

Here are the rankings as they stand at the close of day six:
