No wind

Further delay met the competitors on the second day of the Mistral world championships, when racing was cancelled due to lack of wind.

Following on from the measurement issues that occurred on day one, which were resolved after consultation with the builders, racing was due to get underway today. Unfortunately, it was not to be as the day dawned grey and humid which soon turned into pouring rain and thunderstorms, the wind failed to materialise and racing was cancelled for the day.

The forecast for the next few days looks encouraging and the race officers are hoping that the championships will be able to get underway tomorrow.

Other news on day two was that Olympic gold medallist and current world champion Lee Lai Shan of Hong Kong will not be able to defend her title or try and qualify her country for the Olympic Games in 2004 as she has had to withdraw from the championships due to medical reasons and has since returned home.

The championship is due to conclude on the 15 December.
