Nacra 17 World Championship - No racing today in Scheveningen    
Tue, 23 Jul 2013

At the Nacra 17 World Championship in Scheveningen, The Hague, all racing was cancelled today. This morning at 10 AM the AP flag (postponement) was hoisted for both fleets, yellow and blue. In the afternoon a light sea breeze seemed to be coming in and the yellow fleet left the beach.

Once in the starting area the wind was gone again and the multihulls couldn't even sail against the current. At 4 PM the committee decided to send the boats back to the beach, but still hoped for wind. At 6.30 PM the verdict came: all races cancelled for the day.

Three races were scheduled today for both fleets. The race committee will look into the possibility to schedule as many races as possible in the time left. Wednesday was originally a lay day, but weather permitting will be a racing day as well. Normally with these weather conditions in the afternoon a sea breeze will come in. Therefore sailors and committee are keeping their hopes up for tomorrow and the days after.

Tuesday and Wednesday the qualification races start at 10.30 AM. Thursday the final series will start in the Gold and Silver fleets. On Saturday the Medal race for the Gold and Silver fleet concludes the Worlds.

The Nacra 17 World Championships are organized by the Foundation Nacra Events, The Dutch Sailing Federation (Watersportverbond) and Sailing Management International with support of (partners) City of The Hague, Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport and Nacra Sailing International.
