2005 Nivea World Cup Sylt - Day 8
<PHOTO1>On the 8th day the PWA fleet relaxes, as the wind gives the riders a break after a week of full pull action .
After a full week of back to back action, the PWA riders finally got a well deserved break, as the winds at the Nivea World Cup Sylt did not reach competition strength today. Although forecasts had indicated conditions in the afternoon would be suitable for Slalom 42 racing, it wasn’t to be today.
On the upside of things, it was a beautiful sunny day at the beach for both riders and spectators, who had flocked to the event site in large numbers again. Although there was no sailing done today, the crowd got the chance to get autographs from their favorite riders and check out the latest gear displayed on the beach.
<PHOTO2>Below are all the results and ladders of both waves and Slalom 42 of the event so far. Tomorrow is the last day of the event, when - weather conditions permitting - the Slalom 42 title will be decided. Log on again in the morning for all the developments from Westerland beach as the Nivea World Cup Sylt 2005 moves into its final day.
