Lack of wind cancels play at the Europeans in Italy

Wednesday October 9th 2002, Author: Sasha Oswald, Location: Italy
The race officer had the trickiest job of the day at the Star
European championships as he tried to get the 65 boats away in the varying
conditions that were being experienced.

The sailors saw a range of conditions, as the weather was set on being
indecisive; breeze came in from all directions and shut off altogether once
the rain started. Unfortunately all hope of getting a race underway was
abandoned and the sailors were sent back to shore.

This means that the championship is now behind schedule and therefore the
competitors will forfeit their rest day tomorrow in a hope to get racing
back on track. Racing is due to conclude on Friday.

See the results stand as yesterday
