Yesterday saw some seriously extreme conditions for the competitors that hit the water during the DAM 7 PWA World Cup in Brouwersdam, Holland. Winds ranged from 15 knots to 50 knots with sail sizes from 3.4m up to 5.4m. The day started off light with some sunshine but soon the wind settled and just as forecast it picked up more and more right into the evening. Even as trees were falling and tables flying the competition continued. Nothing sums this up better than the official PWA video produced for ‘Big Tuesday’, certainly a day that will be remembered for many years to come.
