Aquece Rio – International Sailing Regatta - Racing canceled on day 2

2014 Aquece Rio - International Sailing Regatta - For Rio de Janeiro's thousands of tourists Monday 4 August was the perfect day with a beating Brazilian sun, clear South American skies and the occasional gust of light breeze to cool down bathers on Copacabana Beach.

Unfortunately, for the 324 sailors from 34 countries it was not perfect conditions for sailboat racing as light winds forced the Race Committee to cancel all the day's racing by 16:00.

The 49er fleet were rigged and ready first up as the Race Committee called them onto the water. It turned out to be a short lived trip as New Zealand's Blair Tuke explained, 'We went out to try and get some racing in at about one and the wind was still blowing from the north west direction. It was really light and a bit all over the place and the Race Committee really struggled to get a race away but we went out there and gave it a try.'

Despite a lack of competition on race day two Tuke is happy with the time put in to learning the Rio race course. Tuke concluded, 'We've been here for a couple of weeks and it's been great. There are a lot of challenges with the current and different wind conditions but we're really enjoying our time here.'

Light winds were predicted for the second day of racing with a maximum of 10 knots on the cards if the breeze played ball. The wind failed to materialise and the decision to cancel the Laser, Laser Radial and 470 fleets, who were scheduled to race on outside courses Copacabana and Niterói, was made at 14:50.

Fleets racing on the inside courses - Ponte, Escola Naval and Pão de Açucar – were cancelled shortly afterwards to bring an early close to race day two.

The third day of racing will see a cold front pass through Rio de Janeiro that will bring showers, stronger breeze and an increase in wave size. Having lost a day of racing all of the fleets will sail three races on Tuesday with seven set to commence racing at the earlier time of 11:00.

The state of play remains the same in the Finn and Men's and Women's RS:X with Dorian van Rijsselberge (NED) and Charline Picon (FRA) atop of their windsurfing fleets and Brazil's Jorge Zarif (BRA) in pole position in the heavyweight dinghy. The remaining fleets will sail their first race on Tuesday.
