Windsurfing postponed due to Typhoon ‘Tisoy’

SUBIC - Windsurfing in SEA Games Philippines 2019 have been postponed due to typhoon “Tisoy.”

“It will be moved to a date when weather will be clear of typhoon,” said SEA Games Subic Cluster Chairman and lawyer Ramon Agregado Sunday. There is no decision yet on whether sailing competitions will also be re-scheduled.

Typhoon “Tisoy” is expected to make landfall in the Bicol region by late Monday or early Tuesday, bringing maximum sustained winds of 150 kph near the center and 185 kph gusts.

Because of this, PAG-ASA warned of “frequent to continuous heavy rains” in Bicol, Metro Manila, Zambales, Pampanga, Calabarzon, Mindoro provinces, Marinduque, Romblon, Bataan, and Bulacan.

Windsurfing was originally scheduled at the Lighthouse Jetty Area and Subic Bay Yacht Club, respectively from November 28 to December 9.

That original timeframe included practices, weighing and measuring of equipment, and competition proper. Depending on the effects of typhoon “Tisoy,” the two events may have to be postponed to December 5.

“We are anticipating December 5 as the start of the official competition,” said venue manager Julious Macam.PR
