2011 Vietnam PWA Grand Slam

Day 7: Marginal conditions left the slalom fleet teetering on the edge of competition, but ultimately left the standings unchanged on competition’s seventh day.

A building thermal wind towards the end of the afternoon on competition’s seventh day showed signs of promise, allowing race director Juan Antonio Aragon to summon the slalom fleets to the water to complete the remaining women’s losers final and men’s winners final from race one.

Despite prolonged efforts to run both heats, the wind simply wasn’t playing ball, and persisted to drop below the PWA’s seven knot minimum wind requirement during the attempted finals. The only result to stand from the day was a premature start from Finland’s Marianne Kaplas (Starboard / Severne) in the women’s losers final, meaning she will be excluded from tomorrow's re-run.

Tomorrow we're planning to host a live Q&A session with the top three men's slalom sailors; Antione Albeau (JP / NeilPryde), Bjorn Dunkerbeck (Starboard / Severne / Mystic) and Cyril Moussilmani (Starboard / North). YOUR questions will be posed to the sailors by the PWA's guru commentator, Ben Proffitt, and answers will be aired over PWA TV, where we'll pin the guys down on the sofa and grill them with whatever you fire their way.

To pose your question, email stating 1 - Your name - 2 Your location 3 - The sailor you'd like to answer your question and 4 - Your question. Then tune into PWA TV to check out what the pros have to say. Please write 'Q&A Session' in the subject line of your emails.

Tomorrow’s skippers meeting has been scheduled for 10.00am (GMT +7), with a first possible start to racing at 10.30am. Tune into then, where we’ll be picking up with the men’s winners final, and women’s losers final from race one.
