No Ora

No sailing today at the Melges 24 Worlds

Tuesday July 31st 2012, Author: James Boyd, Location: Italy

The second day of the Melges 24 Worlds brought plenty of sun, but sadly no racing, as a most unusual weather system meant that Torbole was not able to deliver her legendary Ora wind today. The Race Committees on the two race courses both made several attempts to start racing, but the wind refused to cooperate forcing them to hoist the AP flag and wait for a wind that never came.

Therefore the overall ranking remains unchanged after yesterday's two races, with Andrea Rachelli's Altea heading this record breaking Melges 24 Worlds, hosted by Circolo Vela Torbole.

The World Championship still has four days to run and tomorrow the Committee hopes to recover some of the lost ground in the official program. PRO Hank Stuart and his team have scheduled racing to start at 08.00 to take advantage of the northerly wind that blows in the morning. They anticipate running three races tomorrow so we can expect a long day.
