Wind Gods don't play ball

Even for the lavish maxi yacht racing in Porto Cervo

Wednesday September 4th 2002, Author: YC Costa Smerald, Location: Mediterranean
The first days of racing at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda's Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, sponsored by Montres of Geneva, the weather has not been wanting to collaborate with the requests of the sailors.

After the first two days of racing light wind was a constant problem, the breeze never picking up beyond 5-6 knots. Continued light winds today saw the third race suspended and postponed until tomorrow, Thursday. This was supposed to have been a layday.

So going into day four of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup results remain the same with Alexialeader in the IMS division, followed by Sotto Voce and My Song.

In the Wally division the leader is Magic Carpet, followed by Askherout and Tuamata, and lastly for the Cruising division the leader is Antonisa, Viriella and Unfurled.
