The 2007 Ulsan PWA World Cup - Day One

Last night’s high profile opening ceremony officially gave the PWA’s newest tour stop the green light, and good breeze allowed racing to start immediately this morning.

Most of the main names made it out of their qualifying heats and into some tough semi-finals draws run over a 6 leg, downwind course.

Karin Jaggi convincingly won both her races, but the multiple world champion didn’t get it all her own way. She was pushed close by Sarah Hebert who scored second place in race one, and Ayuko Suzuki (Starboard / Gaastra who secured third.

In race two she was also forced to rely on years of experience to stamp her authority when Suzuki started amazingly, but finished second, this time ahead of Hebert.

Jaggi, reflecting on the day said, ‘I had bad starts but great speed, which is what saved me really. In these conditions Ayuko, who was unknown opposition to me before this event, was dangerous, and I had to rely on board speed to get ahead after her great starting skills’

Suzuki added that she was nervous on this her PWA debut. ‘But after the first race I felt confident I had starting skill and wanted to consolidate it with a better finish’

Race two was started but abandoned after the first heat due to diminishing wind conditions. Skipper’s meeting is set for 09.00 tomorrow and we’re looking forward to some more cutthroat action and watching the story unravel.
