The fifth day of competition started in the usual laid back Spanish style on the beautiful beaches of Costa Brava with plenty of time for gear tuning and tennis. This also gave the huge weekend crowds the opportunity to mingle with their windsurfing heroes and soak up the world tour atmosphere.
Early in the afternoon a light onshore breeze kick started the sailors into action, and with the hope that the finals of the men’s race 2 could be completed, the top seeds hit the water early. Despite the race crew making every effort to get the competition underway, the wind failed to strengthen enough to meet the minimum requirement for racing which leaves the event standings the same as yesterday.
