Day 5 at the Ulsan PWA World Cup
Day 5: Arrighetti remains defiant, further extending their event leads on a gusty fifth day of competition at Korea’s Jinha beach.
The latter half of the competition period in Korea was forecasted to deliver some classic slalom conditions, and the event’s fifth day certainly didn’t disappoint. With the East Sea groomed by a typically gusty 7-20 knot breeze, first on the day’s agenda was to complete some unfinished business left from day two; the women’s finals from elimination two.
In the women’s third elimination, Vidal showed her pervious race-winning performance was far from a flash in the pan, when she sailed a perfect elimination to win the race in truly domineering fashion. Behind her, the super consistent Arrighetti consolidated her event lead with yet another podium finish in second, and Offringa added to a similarly consistent run of results in third. Over in the losers final, the show was stolen by Japan’s Fujiko Onishi, her best result of the event so far.
With the afternoon wind becoming increasingly gusty, the fourth women’s race eliminations were started, but unable to secure a result, as conditions halted progress at the semi finals.
With the races completed thus far, that leaves Arrighetti still sitting at the top of her respective fleet with two days left of the event to run. Ample wind on the radar points to an explosive end to this already awesome showdown.
Tomorrow morning’s skippers meeting has been scheduled for 10.00am, with a first possible start at 10.30am. Be sure to follow all the action from day six in Korea from then onwards.
