Delays return to Finn World Masters
Published on May 24th, 2018
El Balís, Spain (May 24, 2018) – The fourth day at the 2018 Finn World Masters ended with no more racing taking place, the third day lost, in a week of uncharacteristically light winds. The championship concludes tomorrow with just one more race needed to make the championship valid.
While there was breeze most of the day, it was never more than 3-4 knots and, while a feint hope existed that an evening breeze would come in, the sailors waited in vain.
The forecast for the final day is more promising with moderate to strong winds forecast. The start time has been brought forward to 10:00 to try and get two races in before the wind gets too strong. A maximum of two races are possible, with many needing the discard which comes into play after that fifth race.
A series of seven races had been scheduled from May 21 to 24 with the original plan to have the final race and a medal race on May 25.
