The World Cup camp moved back to Vargas yesterday to wait for the regular winds to return. The wind was out there but didn't quite pick up enough at the right angle to hold any competition today.
After Wednesdays spectacular action sailors were left to think of what might have been and what lies ahead for the next few days. Most sailors sorted out there equipment got it ready for another day of battle.
Organizers and officials were all very up beat today after completing enough heats for the event to count towards the official PWA wave ranking for 2002.
PWA Tour Manager Richard Page "It's nice to get the official competition under our belt, quite a surprise from the usual onshore conditions usually experienced at Vargas, it just goes to show the incredible versatility of Gran Canaria as a premier windsurfing destination. We expect some great footage from the action yesterday".
The weather forecast still looks good for the weekend, so there's still a good possibility of running the finals and double elimination.
