The Nestea PWA Hungarian World Cup Day 1

Crystal clear skies and mirror calm waters were the beautiful, yet unfortunate sight that greeted competitors here at the Nestea PWA Hungarian World Cup. Once the contest had been declared officially open, the postponement flag was raised and sailors settled into a holding pattern.

The Nestea dome then became the centre of attention where sailors and VIP’s congregated to talk about everything from windsurfing to golf, whilst enjoying ice cold Nestea.

The morning rapidly developed into a truly spectacular day without a cloud in the sky and a gentle 5-knot breeze picking up from the North. Although it was windy enough to tempt several sailors onto the water the winds failed to quite reach the required minimum and despite the best efforts of sailors and the race committee, eventually competition was called off for the day.

With three days of racing left at the event, hopes are still high and forecasts look good for some serious racing.
