Melges 32 Australian Championships - Day 1 blown out    
Sat, 20 Apr 2013

Competitors spent this morning studying strong wind warnings on weather sites hopeful the forecast would change for day one of the 2013 Melges 32 Australian Championships. At eleven o'clock Class President Kim Williams, PRO Steve Tucker and MHYC Vice Commodore Racing Phil Clinton headed out to the harbour to assess the racecourse.

After a one hour postponement where crews mingled and worked on boats a skippers meeting was called at the Sandbar, the wind continuing to increase as skippers conferred. The damaging wind warning of south westerly winds thirty to forty knots sealed the decision and racing was abandoned for Friday.

Greg Prescott '2 Unlimited' commented when asked how this would affect their Championships 'It doesn't, we’re looking forward to racing but it’s not worth risking breakages on day one of the regatta. Saturdays forecast looks better and we can get the two missed races in over the weekend.'

The afternoon was not wasted with owners bringing forward the Australian fleet AGM scheduled for Saturday morning.

Saturdays forecast is southerly winds nineteen to twenty two knots racing starting an hour earlier, competitors are fully prepared and keen to hit the line for some exciting racing.
