No Wind on Day Five
For the second straight day, there was no racing at the Laser World Championships. This time it was because there was no wind.
We launched at about 11:30 in glassy conditions and were towed to the race course. We sat around until about 3:30 in no wind until a light North-Easterly began to fill in. There were times when we thought we could start a race, and times where the breeze died again. In fact, at about 4:45 the Race Committee did start a sequence, but as the fleet was pushing the line pretty hard, the Race Committee abandoned it with 5 seconds to go. Shortly thereafter the breeze died completely, and the RC was quick to hoist AP over A, and we were done for the day.
Tomorrow we are scheduled to have three races with the first warning signal at 11:30 AM.
