After a thrilling first day of Surf-Freestyle action in Silvaplana, Wednesday’s focus was on the Surf-Slalom heats. Crew and athletes headed down to St Moritz where the skippers’ meeting took place at 10.30am. Although the early hours of the morning presented a cloudy atmosphere and the forecast was showing heavy rain, the beauty of the swiss alps delayed poor weather and although clouds were still vacant, blue skies appeared with the first heat commencing at 13.45.
A feature we’re proud to introduce for the Ensis Engadinwing by Dakine GWA Wingfoil World Cup is the use of a live Sailmon GPS tracker. Athletes are provided with a device allowing crew and spectators to follow them every step of the way! For close finishes and reliable data, this is a perfect and exciting partnership with Sailmon for Switzerland.
Day two – Wednesday 15th – lighter winds all morning pushed the start time back. With a big race briefing, the action got underway just before 2pm. Read on for updates on all exciting races that took place despite challenging conditions;
