2005 Nivea World Cup Sylt – Day 1

Sunday September 25, 2005

The first official day of competition has turned out to be another day of preparation for the riders, as the wind failed to materialize despite decent forecasts. As always, the boulevard of Westerland was packed with spectators regardless, all coming down to check out the sailors and their state of the art equipment.

With many riders signing autographs and doing interviews throughout the day, the crowds were treated to an entertaining show, even though the light winds prevented the sailors from getting it on on the water.

The less windsurfing action however, the hotter the party action, as the festivities in Sylt continue well after the riders have been released for the day. The immense party tent at the event site draws huge crowds every night, hitting it off no matter what the days conditions on the water were like.

Tomorrow looks like another day of light to moderate winds, possibly providing suitable conditions for racing, so stay sharp and connected to to find out as soon as the fleet hits the water.
