RC44 Austria Cup – Paul Cayard updates us on the unstable weather and shuffling positions on Lake Traunsee.

A very light wind day today on Lake Traunsee. There was no wind until 1400 and then it was very light and unstable. We had one bad race, one mediocre race. We dropped to fifth place overall. Oracle is still leading, but two good races by Aqua have pulled them to within fifth points.

There are no particular highlights to share with you other than to say that the wind was very difficult to pick and the fleet was reshuffling positions all the time. There were periods when the leaders fell into holes of no wind and the others came from behind and sailed right around them.

Tomorrow's forecast is a bit better than today but not much. 4-6 knots of wind is on the menu. Last start tomorrow is 1500.
