Tiree had plenty of wind yesterday but not enough swell! Sailors were on 4.7\’s at Gott Bay enjoying the very small ramps on the inside whislt the PWA boys were sent out at Crossapol to express themselves in the Go Faster Energy Drinks Super Session! They gave $750 US dollars to be split between the top3 sailors from this expression session. The judges got down to the last 10 sailors then decided to move ship over to Balephuil to see whether the actual competition could be run.
The expression session final was run first and Victor Fernandez won with Jonas Ceballos in second, Kauli Seadi in third. Then the real heats were run, well, they tried but Matt Pearch just couldn\’t get going against John Hibbard even though Hibbard racked up the points with some sick forwards and one decent wave right from the back. But the judges decided that it was not good enough and postponed the heat – and that was that!!
The forecast today is mainly windless & sunny so the sailors will be chilling out at An Talla looking forward to tonight where they are being treated to a tasting evening courtesy of Loch Fyne Oysters as part of the superb hospitality program the organizers have provided. Everyone is welcome so don\’t let the Pros drink all the whiskey!!
