For two days there’s been a dip in the wind for competitors at British windsurfing’s most important competition – the Tiree Wave Classic. It means three-time winner John Skye remains the leader of the pro event on the Inner Hebridean island.
A few heats of the Masters (amateurs aged 40+) were able to be completed on Tuesday morning, and the women’s event also got another round in. After that the wind dropped at Balephuil beach, and that remained the case all day today (Wednesday) too. But conditions are set to improve with two days of the competition – being held for the 25th time - left to run.
Nigel Treacy, from the British Wavesailing Association, said, “I wouldn’t say these last couple of days has been frustrating, it’s just one of those things. The forecast looks better tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday and the scene’s set for a classic finish.”
