Ulsan PWA World Cup
We hope you are all well and have enjoyed the coverage of the amazing events in Israel and Croatia. It’s been great to be back on the water, competing at the highest levels, and we congratulate all the athletes who have taken part.
Despite those successes, the pandemic continues to linger and evolve, and continues to hamper our efforts to bring you windsurfing competition at its finest.
The Ulsan PWA World Cup in Korea is the latest event to fall victim to COVID. We had hoped that an exemption to the national restrictions would be issued for the event, meaning that competitors and crew would be able to attend the event without the required 14 days in quarantine on arrival, but due to concerns over the spread of the Delta variant of the virus, the authorities in Korea have decided that they cannot offer any such exemption. As a result, the local organisers were left with little choice but to cancel the 2021 event and delay until 2022 instead.
We know this will be a blow to everyone in the windsurfing world, but we have to continue to ride out the storm until the virus can no longer hold us back.
We are still hoping to bring you a great event from Sylt later in the year, and we will continue to bring you updates on that as they become available. We will also be making sure you get your windsurfing fix with all the best action, from the best athletes, through our social media channels, so stay tuned the PWA!
