netIP Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup
After five days on hold, the penultimate day of the 2016 netIP Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup finally provided a small window of competable conditions, which allowed the qualifying round to be completed during the afternoon.
Loick Lesauvage (Goya Windsurfing / Shamal Sunglasses) was the standout sailor in the qualifying round and the 16 year old deservedly booked his place in the main draw after coming out on top against Amado Vrieswijk (JP / Severne), Gustav Haggstrom (RRD / RRD Sails) and Max Droege (Sailloft Hamburg).
Julian Salmonn (Severne / Severne) and Julien Quentel (Patrik / Avanti) advanced from the second and third heat, while local boy Mads Bjorna (Fanatic / Simmer) secured the remaining spot in the main draw after winning the repechage round.
There is still an outside chance of competing tomorrow with the forecast showing 15-24 knots and 1.5 metre waves, but it will all depend how offshore the wind is. Tomorrow will see a bright and early skippers’ meeting at 6:45am with the action commencing from 7:15am (GMT+1). Make sure you tune into www.pwaworldtour.com to follow all of the action live via the PWA live stream.
