Bora-ed out

No racing for the RC44s today

Wednesday October 10th 2007, Author: Bernard Schopfer, Location: Italy
In the week leading up to Italy’s most popular regatta - the Barcolana, three new owners plus an impressive group of professional sailors is gathered here for the final event on the RC44 Championship Tour - the RC44 Trieste Cup.

Following on from an exciting and windy practice race day yesterday, the fleet of ten RC44s waited out the Race Committee’s decision as to whether or not the scheduled fleet racing would take place today. Winds gusting up to 35 knots (indicative of the region’s ‘black bora’) however, led the Race Committee to cancel today’s racing.

Racing is due to resume tomorrow morning. The format, match or fleet racing, will be announced at the Skippers Briefing.
