pwa 2020 nieuwe opzet en reglementen slalom coursrace

PWA Racing 2020

As most of you are aware, there has been a huge amount of discussion and development of PWA Racing Disciplines in recent months, which will revolutionise racing at the highest level of windsurfing competition.

Slalom

For the first time, 2020 will see a fully integrated foil and fin discipline as PWA slalom will take to foils as well as planning hulls to maximise the opportunities to race that foil generates, in the lightest wind whilst maintaining the excitement and close racing of the slalom format across the widest wind ranges possible.
With a format that can offer racing in conditions from 5 knots upwards, the days of waiting for wind will be almost eradicated, with consistent action for spectators, organisers and sponsors as well as reliable content on the lives stream to give the on line audience confidence to return on a regular basis.



Events will have credible results with little to no likelihood of just squeezing in one race during the event period, and the overall season results will create true overall champions based on more events with solid winners.

Course Racing

The development of upwind racing on the PWA Tour in recent years will not be discarded, with a dedicated course racing discipline available, featuring foil in isolation for events looking for the ultimate in tactical racing on upwind / downwind courses.
Event organisers interested in putting on either Slalom or Course Racing events should contact the PWA for further details.
Rules and Equipment

Slalom

The Slalom discipline will run on the same basic format and rules as existing Slalom, using downwind courses and the same elimination formats. Courses may be enhanced to create a wider gybing area, utilising 2 buoys, to increase separation at the marks but, in general, the courses will be downwind slalom style courses on both fin and foil.
Racing will still be run on the “no rules” principle, with sailors only being penalised for dangerous sailing, but clearer and firmer guidelines will be given to sailors and the race committee as to what shall be considered dangerous sailing.
The decision of whether to race on foil or fin has been looked at in length and opinions have been split between making it a fixed choice for each race, meaning all sailors must be on fin or foil as specified by the race committee, or making it the riders choice which type of equipment to try to race on.
In order to allow continued evolution within the discipline, but maximise safety, it has been decided that races may be specified to be either foil, fin or open for sailors to choose. However, sailors should expect that at the beginning of the season, all races are likely to be fixed to either foil or fin, to allow the format to be further evaluated before running any open races where sailors can choose whether to race on foil or fin, with the 2 types of equipment potentially being mixed on the course.
The PWA Management Board, in consultation with the sailor committees, will continue to assess the possibilities here and may make changes to the rules in this respect if they are felt to be in the best interests of competition.
When racing on foils, the wind minimum shall be a hard 5 knots, meaning that if the wind drops below 5 knots, the Race Director must abandon the race. In reality this means racing in conditions with a minimum of about 5 – 8 knots. The wind minimum for races on fins, shall remain at 7 knots. If “open” races are run where sailors may choose whether to race on fin or foil, the wind minimum will be 5 knots and, any sailors taking fins, and unable to plane in winds over 5 knots will have no grounds to complain.
Competitors will register 7 sails (max 10 square metres) and 4 boards for slalom in 2020. This may include any mixture of 7 sails, but boards may only include 1 foil board (up to 91cm wide) and 3 slalom boards (up to 85cm wide).
Each competitor may register 2 foil sets, comprising 1 mast, 2 fuselage, and 2 sets of wings (2x front and 2x back)
Competitors may use foils on any board they have registered for races on foil, but may only use fins on boards up to 85cm wide.

Course Racing

Focussing purely on full fleet, upwind and downwind racing, on foils, course racing will continue to fulfil the demand for more traditional racing, albeit with the cutting edge aspect of hydrofoil technology.

Competitors will register one board (max 100cm width) for course racing, and 3 sails (max 10 square metres), and 2 foil sets as specified above.

Registration Deadlines

As the new formats and maximum width for Course Racing have been changed from previously published regulations, the deadline for submitting registration information for foil boards (Slalom and Course Racing) will be 1st March.
For sails, which will no longer be separated between foil and slalom sails, with all registered sails being permitted for either discipline, the deadline for registration will be moved back to January 15th. The deadline for brands to register foils will be January 31st.
If you have any questions regarding the future formats, please contact the PWA at info@pwaworldtour.com.



Kind regards

The PWA

er veranderd niet heel veel dan foilen meer ingepast gaat worden bij de bestaande slalom wedstrijden.
4 boards en 7 zeilen tot 10m2
3 slalom boards tot 85 wijd.
1 foil board met 2 verschillende finnen.
1 foil zeil. tot 10m2

het aantal knopen is voor het foilen 5 knopen om mee te starten.
voor slalom met er 7 knopen zijn...Persoonlijk had dit voor mij 10 knopen gemogen.
nu maar hopen op een heel druk schema vol met slalom en foil evenementen...dus ook de costa brava als slalom event..kan ik ook weer meedoen...

Pwa 7 knopen = 11 echte knopen heb ik begrepen en zie je ook op de livestreams. Het is meer dat het laagste windgat minstens 7 knopen moet zijn, of 5 om te foilen. Nou heb ik natuurlijk niet zelf meegedaan..

Als je mee wilt doen is Sylt of Hvide Sande toch veel toegankelijker dan Costa Brava?

Sylt is heel moeilijk vaak onshore om te varen...maar dit jaar geen slalom op Sylt.

Hvide Sande wordt niet elk jaar georganiseerd.

Costa Brava heeft hele makkelijke omstandigheden en de camping is top geregeld..ik ben er al eens geweest en heb al wel eens mee gedaan.. ik wil alleen meer en betere resultaat op mijn palmares...

Eigenlijk best jammer dat ze niet terug gaan naar een overall klassement van alle onderdelen; wave, freestyle, slalom en foil.
Bij de dames zie je nog wel die meerdere onderdeel combineren, bij heren zijn het er maar weinig.
Wel raar met een krimpende sport en event kalender.
Je zou zeggen dat sponsoren willen dat hun top surfers bij zo veel mogelijk events aanwezig zijn. Als je alleen de freestyle tour doet kom je in een heel jaar slechts 3x in actie. Is toch bijna niet meer te doen om je dan prof windsurfer te noemen lijkt mij.

Neilpryde past aan aan het nieuwe concept! Minder maten en slalomzeilen aangepast op foilslalom! Waarschijnlijk dus 6 maten EvoXII en dan de 10m FlightEvo2 voor de riders tijdens de PWA? (Als ze 7 zeilen mogen aanmelden voor de slalom) Ookal zie ik een antoine albeau geen slalom varen met 4.8..

de uiteindelijke uitleg van de te registreren materiaal voor 2020.
Dear Sailors and Members of the Windsurfing Industry



With the 2019 Tour now over, we wanted to write to you one more time regarding the racing disciplines for 2020, in order to clarify any outstanding points that you may be unsure of. This is for information only and not a request for feedback.



Disciplines

There will be 2 racing disciplines for 2020, Slalom and Course Racing



Slalom

Will be an integrated discipline that will include both foil and fin.

It will be run on an elimination basis and on downwind courses, the same as existing slalom.

Wind minimum will be 5 knots and it will be at the individual sailor’s discretion whether to take a foil or fin. The only exception to this will be in conditions that are deemed extreme enough to significantly impact safety, where the Race Committee may decide to limit races to fin only.

Certain events may still be deemed fin only to keep travel costs down if conditions denote that either conditions are reliable enough, or where conditions do not allow foiling, such as at shallow water venues.

Due to the potential presence of foils on the course in all races, competitors will be required to wear impact vests and helmets at all times, except at events which have been specified as fin only.

Women’s slalom events will still contain separate fin and foil races but these will be run on slalom courses with a 7 knot minimum for fin races and a 5 knot minimum for foil races, the only differences will be that the Race Director will specify whether races will be on foil or fin, and the entry lists, results, rankings and prize funds will be separate.



Course Racing

Will be a pure foil discipline based around upwind racing on a variety of courses. Minimum conditions will be based on suitable conditions, with the guideline being that if 50% of the leading 50% of the fleet drop off the foil, the race should be abandoned. Races will mainly be run on a full feet basis, although smaller heats may be used if in the interests of competition.



Equipment

All racing will be run on registered production equipment, from the PWA registered production equipment lists, according to the following rules and limits



Slalom Equipment

Competitors may register 4 boards for the slalom discipline in 2020. 3 of these boards must be no wider than 85cm and may be used with either foil or fin. 1 of these boards may be up to 91cm wide and may be used with foil only.

Competitors may register up to 7 sails for the slalom discipline in 2020. This can be any mixture of sails from the PWA registered sails list and may be used with foil or fin at any time and on any of the competitors registered boards. Sails may be no bigger than 10m2.

Competitors may register a foil set consisting of 1 mast, 2 fuselage, 2 front wings and 2 rear wings. Foil size limitations remain unchanged from 2019. Any components registered must be from the same manufacturer and designed and registered to work together. Competitors may not register mix and match foil sets comprising of components from different manufacturers. This may be a separate foil set to one used in course racing.



Course Racing Equipment

Competitors may register 1 board for the course racing discipline in 2020. Boards may be a maximum width of 100.5cm.

Competitors may register 3 sails for the course racing discipline in 2020. Sails shall be a maximum of 10m2. These sails may be any 3 sails from the PWA registered sails list.

Competitors may register a foil set consisting of 1 mast, 2 fuselage, 2 front wings and 2 rear wings. Foil size limitations remain unchanged from 2019. Any components registered must be from the same manufacturer and designed and registered to work together. Competitors may not register mix and match foil sets comprising of components from different manufacturers. This may be a separate foil set to one used in slalom



Foils – both disciplines

Foil masts must not exceed 115cm including the depth of fuselage when mounted, measured from the base of the board to bottom edge of the fuselage. The total length of the foil from the leading edge of the front wing to the trailing edge of rear wing must not exceed 120cm. The wings must not exceed a maximum width of 100cm.



Registration deadlines

Slalom boards to be used with fins (max 85cm wide) must be registered by manufacturers according to the normal PWA registration procedure by 15th December (unchanged from previous years)

Slalom boards to be used with foils must be registered by 1st March 2020.

Sails for both disciplines must be registered by 20th January 2020.

Foils must be registered by 31st January.

We look forward to some exciting racing next year!



Kind regards

The PWA

het komt er uiteindelijk op neer dat het Foilen erbij komt en dat de slalom nog steeds met een 10.0 vierkante meter gevaren mag worden.. ik was persoonlijk erg bang dat de slalom zeilen tot maximum 9.0 zou gaan om eerder te gaan foilen..dit is gelukkig niet het geval..Ik hoop dat de combi een groot succes gaat worden..slalom en foilen..Nu maar hopen dat Sylt en de Costa Brava weer slalom events gaan worden met foilen..is veel leuker
