Strong wind hold up

Initial round robin racing at the third annual Toscana Elba Cup - Trofeo Locman is under postponement due to strong winds. At 09:00 today the wind strength was between 25 and 28 knots from the southeast. The organisers will review the decision at 13:00, but the strength could increase if the wind shifts to the southwest as predicted.
