Skunked (again) at Finn World Masters

Published on May 22nd, 2018

El Balís, Spain (May 22, 2018) – For the second day in a row, lack of wind precluded any racing taking place at the 2018 Finn World Masters. The day started cloudy and after a light sea breeze became established early afternoon, hopes were raised, but it did not develop as expected and racing for the 353 sailors was abandoned for the day before 17:00.

Despite the lack of racing, the morale of the fleet remains high with everyone enjoying the fantastic hospitality and sunshine. But enough is enough and it is time to go racing. Forecasts indicate that tomorrow could bring a more solid sea breeze. Rain and thunderstorms in the interior continue to disrupt the normal thermal generation that produces the sea breeze here.

Four races are required to make a valid series and with a maximum of three races allowed each day, two racing days are needed. A series of seven races is scheduled from May 21 to 24 with the final race and a medal race on May 25.
