The wind in Pozo yesterday afternoon was too light for any official action and the competition is now all set to go down to the wire today. The forecast is looking promising although the likelihood of any more wave action is slim.
The battle for the men's freestyle pole position has boiled down to a shoot out between Matt Pritchard (Gaastra, AHD), Nik Baker (North Mistral) Ricardo Campello (JP, Neil Pryde), Jonas Ceballos (Gaastra, Fanatic) and Antoine Albeau (Neil Pryde, AHD). Pritchard is currently holding number one slot but any of the closing pack could clinch victory if the wind blows tomorrow.
In the women¹s freestyle Daida Moreno (Mistral, North sails) looks set to take victory and the race for the other podium slots is between Karin Jaggi (F2, Arrows), Colette Guadagnino (JP, Neil Pryde) and Anne Marie Reichman (Naish boards, Naish sails).
Tomorrow evening the event will conclude with the closing ceremony at the Gloria Palace Hotel in San Augustin. After ten days of grueling competition the night traditionally turns into a huge party. Holidays Bar is the first stop for most sailors followed by a trip into the infamous ŒPit, a mass of bars and nightclubs where the scene rages all night long.
