No Racing On Final Day Of SNG Annual Regatta At Sea

At the 13.00 competitor briefing the race committee reported to the competitors that the wind in the race area was still regularly gusting up well into the twenties and that the sea condition in the area was very rough.  As a result the decision has reluctantly been made to cancel the final day of racing for the Société Nautique de Genève’s Annual Regatta at Sea. Although sad not to sail the competitors universally applauded the committee’s decision.

The race committee also gave advance notice of its intention to post an amendment to the Sailing Instructions for the World Championship to give them the option to run up to three races on tomorrow’s opening day.  This is in light of the fact that currently the forecast for Tuesday is for more strong winds and the race committee would like the option to get an extra race in the bank if they feel it appropriate.

The prize giving for the Annual Regatta at Sea and the Opening Ceremony for the World Championship will take place at 18.30 tonight.
