The wind and strong ebb tide conspired to postpone race 12 until tomorrow. With the race about to start and the yachts well engaged in pre-start manoeuvres, officials called a halt because the wind exceeded the 20-knot limit mandated by the three-knot ebb tide.
The boats seemed oblivious to the call and completed the pre-start and raced to the first mark.
