Several hours later the wind swung unexpectedly from side onshore from the right to side onshore from the left and picked up significantly, sending the entire fleet hurrying for their gear and out on the water. While the course was being set by the organization, the riders made the most of the light conditions, but unfortunately it was not to be. As the afternoon progressed, the wind dropped again as quickly as it came, leaving the first day of the 2005 Catalunya Costa Brava PWA Super X World Cup without an official result.

Today's skippers' meeting is scheduled for 1000 hours local time with a first possible start at 1030, although as yesterday demonstrated, conditions in the bay of Roses can change unexpectedly at any minute.
