Skunked at Star Bacardi Cup

Published on March 5th, 2019

Miami, FL (March 5, 2019) – Despite the weather forecast predicting the day’s outcome for the 92nd Bacardi Cup, this morning the 64-boat Star fleet was still hoping a light wind race would be achievable. But, with no breeze and nothing forecast, the Race Committee called it a day at around 11:30 AM and hoisted AP over A at Coral Reef Yacht Club.

“The weather was too unstable and it would not guarantee fair racing, and possibly not even safe racing, to the competitors,” commented Regatta PRO Carl Schellbach. “We have four more days to get five races done and the forecast is looking really good. So we thought we would give the sailors a day off instead of keeping them here to wait.”

The six race series for the Star fleet will resume tomorrow and continue to March 9.
