The sight of the TP52 and maxi fleet immobile against the backdrop of Capri's Faraglioni was certainly unusual, but Zephyr decided to take the day off today.
The coastal race started in light breezes of about eight knots, but the fleet stopped in dead air right when they had sailed as far as Capri's justly famous Faraglioni. The regatta committee soon had to call of the racing.
Provisional results remain as they were yesterday with Azzurra and the American team Vesper tied for points at the lead.
