The first day of the this year´s PWA Slalom competition, which sees a men competition only this year, started with a skippersmeeting at 10.00. The first possible start, which was set for 11.00 had to be delayed. Very light wind was the reason for that. All the area was covered by clouds. The 56 registered riders had enough time to prepare gaer and get lunch at 13.00. Around 15.00 the wind picked up to 10 to 20 knots and the 4 mark downwind course was ready set. Sails in between 7,8 and 8,6 and the medium wide boards were choosen by most of the sailors. Just Taty Frans decided for a 6,6 m big sail on his medium sized board.
