Skunked at J/70 Worlds
Published on September 12th, 2017
Porto Cervo, Italy (September 12, 2017) – The start of the 2017 J/70 World Championship will need to wait until tomorrow as racing was officially cancelled today at 13:00 with winds gusting beyond 30 knots. After a notable measurement process which saw seven boats officially rejected for improper modifications, five filed for redress but had their requests denied. The forecast for tomorrow anticipates high winds again that are borderline for competition. Racing for the 162 entrants is to be held September 12 to 16. Details.
