Skunked again at Star Eastern Hemispheres

Published on May 3rd, 2018

Trieste, Italy (May 3, 2018) – The second day of the Star Eastern Hemisphere Championship once again failed to get any races for the fleet of 67 teams from 17 nations.

As yesterday, the day started with a strong bora wind blowing between 25 and 30 knots. The Race Committee was forced to postpone the start of the races. Later on, two starts were given, but both races were abandoned during the first windward leg due to a very shifty and gusty wind which wouldn’t have allowed for regular races.

In the afternoon a very strong bora started to blow and races could not be held and the crews had to go back to the Yacht Club Adriaco’s docks.

The first warning signal for tomorrow, day 3 of the Star Eastern Hemisphere Championship 2018, is set at 11:00.

Racing is planned for May 2 to 5.
