The PWA Aloha Classic Presented by JP-Australia – Day 5

Hope springs eternal as improving forecasts bring a ray of light to an otherwise gloomy day.

Light and variable winds coupled with overcast skies did little to ease the tense anticipation of the competition fleet who remained on hold following 2 days of light winds.

Conditions did not show much improvement throughout the day although by the last call at 16.00, the swell had started to grow and there were clearly defined head high sets paying a more frequent visit to Ho’okipa.

More important than today’s circumstances however, is the uplifting change in the weather forecasts for the latter part of the week. There is now definite potential for competition worthy condition on Thursday and Friday, creating renewed enthusiasm among the sailors and Ho’okipa crowds. .

The show starts up at 10.00 tomorrow, so be sure to stay tuned to for all the latest news as it happens.
