Tricky winds, Black-flagged races at Landsailing Worlds
Published on July 17th, 2014
Austin, NV (July 17, 2014) – After a calm morning, wind filled in very quickly in the early afternoon, raising sailors’ expectations for steady, strong winds. Instead, the conditions shifted between calm and fairly strong, with shifting wind direction throughout the afternoon, resulting in a number of black-flagged races. Despite the conditions, several classes were able to complete races.
Race dates: International 5.6 Mini, July 13 to 15
Race dates: All others, July 15 (pm) to 19
