The “Fly ANA Windsurfing World Cup in Yokosuka Miura Japan” was completed on Tuesday, 15 November.

Thank you very much for attending the event or watching it live.

The PWA Windsurfing World Cup

The PWA Windsurfing World Cup is an annual world tour that travels to about ten countries, mainly in Europe, where the world best competes for the world’s number one position.

This year’s event was the final round of the World Tour, and for the first time the World Champion was born in Japan.

The event, usually held in May, was changed to November, and featured very good wind conditions. This compares to an average northerly wind in November 2019, as measured by the Yokosuka Fire Department, of only 3.9 m/s.

The races were competed in a ‘slalom’ zigzag course from upwind to downwind with multiple marked buoys, where windsurfers can gain the most speed.
The men’s record speed was approximately 100 km/h.

The area off the Tsukuihama coast, where the race takes place, is known as one of the best “slopes” in Japan, where the wind blows from the sea, making it ideal for this slalom.

In addition to the powerful spectacle at sea, large LED monitors were set up on land allowing spectators to join in the event by providing a detailed view of the race.

Live images were streamed from onboard a vessel and drone.

Spectators received real time easy to understand information on the large screen monitor including an introduction of the offshore course, explanation of the rules , various commentary charts and additional diagrams entered by the commentator.

The winners of the competition were as follows.

Women’s: Ms. Marion Mortefon 

Men’s: Enrico Marotti 

The 2022 champion has been crowned in this final round of the PWA Tour.
