PWA Ulsan World Cup - Finian cruised into third position!

Following two days on standby, day five of competition began in a similar fashion. However, with signs of the weather clearing up, race director, Juan Antonio Aragon, made the call for the sailors to be ready to race at a moment's notice. By 14:30 there were promising signs that racing would take place, and within the hour, the competition was in full swing.

Whilst most of the world's best were hitting the wall, Finian Maynard (RRD, Gaastra) was quietly plugging away, making amends for his premature start in the very first race of the contest. After winning all of his heats, he cruised into the final and sailed home in 3rd, putting him back on the radar and in the top 3 overall.

Finian words:
"Today started with some rain and full clouds. It was looking unlikely that we would race but at 3pm there was a break in the weather and the wind started very quickly to build. By 430pm we were fully powered and the racing was on. I used my 10.0 and 135 combination, felt pretty good as I have not had much time on this set-up before the event. I think tomorrow looks good on the forecast and we are expecting good winds. I hope to race well and I will try my best to get some good
results."
