The weather was much the same as yesterday – the breeze was never over six knots and race officials reluctantly called racing off at Pam local time.

Three race days have now been lost in the regatta.

Races postponed will be raced on reserve days. If all round robin 1 races are not completed before the scheduled start of round robin 2, a second race will be held each day. Originally only one race was scheduled each day during round robin 2, giving the race committee some leeway to make up for the abandoned race days.

Tomorrow NZL 92 faces United Internet Team Germany and China Team.
