Catalunya PWA World Cup - Day 3 - A recap of day two with Arnon Dagan as cloud stops play - Arnon Dagan
After a foggy start to day three in Costa Brava it always looked as though it would be an uphill battle for the racing to resume. Unfortunately that’s the way the day panned out as the weather remained hazy - stopping the clockwork like sea breeze from kicking in.

With the sailors playing the waiting game today we caught up with Arnon Dagan (RRD / NeilPryde), who currently sits at the top of the rankings, but experienced a real high, followed by a real low within the space of a couple of hours during yesterday’s racing.

PWA: What was going through your head after winning the first elimination yesterday?

AD: “I thought to myself that I shouldn’t be too high - I was thinking I’ve won finals before, but there’s along way to go so it’s not a big deal and try and treat it like nothing. When I crossed the line though I couldn’t help celebrating it just came out in the moment. Yesterday was a good fight - dragging all the equipment to the beach, I’ve also just travelled in from Maui - so it was just a release for me.”

PWA: How did you feel when you knew that you’d gone over early in the first round of the next race?

AD: “Surprisingly it didn’t feel as bad as if I hadn’t won the other race. I tried to do the same thing as when I won, you know, not going to high and not going to low, but the high was a high and the low… well that was a low. Now I just need to move on from it because there is nothing I can do about it now. I would have felt much worse about it in the earlier days. It was way, way, way better than the mistake I made in Sylt (2014) that one was really. With this one I was like well okay you’re an idiot - how many years can you compete and still do things likes this, but like I said earlier there’s nothing I can do about it now except smile.”

PWA: Thanks, Arnon good luck for the rest of the event.

The forecast for tomorrow looks similar to today, so it will be a case of wait and see. The skippers’ meeting for tomorrow will be held at 10am with the action commencing from 10:30am - if conditions allow. Stay up to date with all of the latest developments by tuning into www.pwaworldtour.com.
