The Corona Extra PWA World Cup ’07 – Day One

The raw Atlantic coastline of Tiree, Scotland, lies dormant and calm as the world’s best wave sailors wait for an incoming onslaught of wind and surf.


Early morning beach checks revealed the accuracy of the forecasts. The ocean lay calm and the fresh still air was accompanied by the dramatic light and stunning vistas these remote Islands enjoy.

Last night the riders were given a traditional Scottish welcome at the event HQ hosted by the local community and the sponsors as they celebrate the 2007 year of Culture for the Scottish Highlands.

After the competitors familiarised themselves with the various beaches this mobile event covers they were treated to an afternoon of coastal orienteering along the rugged cliffs and beaches of the Island.

With activities like this laid on, Event Scotland, who’ve supported this contest so heavily, are proud to demonstrate how much potential this beautiful country has for outdoor sports and the vast resources available for tourists with a taste for adventure.

Forecasts for tomorrow are more optimistic for wind and waves, especially in the afternoon. The outlook for later in the week is also good for strong wind and powerful swell.

The first call on competition starting will be made at 08.00 tomorrow after an early morning surf check.

The title race is as close as it’s been for some years now, and is entirely between the tour runner-up, Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Simmer) of Spain and Brazilian Kauli Seadi (Quatro / Naish)
