ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres - Top sailors ready for medal races

'2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup, Hyeres, France - Laser Radial'    Thom Touw ©

At the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres the medals will be decided on Saturday 26 April with the Medal Races featuring the top ten sailors across ten Olympic events.

Whilst the golden honours have already been picked up in the Finn and the Men’s RS:X there’s plenty still to play for with a good breeze forecast.

A ridge extending from Spain to eastern France at midnight UTC is expected to weaken throughout the day while a trough stretching from the gulf of Genoa to the gulf of Lion develops south-westward to north of the Balearic islands.

A light and variable morning breeze will stabilise at a westerly direction towards the latter part of the morning with 12-16 knots on the cards. As the day goes on it will fresh to 15-20 knots in the afternoon.

Expect more great race action in the European evening on the ISAF Sailing World Cup YouTube channel here.

Tracking of the fleets resumes on the final day of racing in 2D and 3D and is available to view on the ISAF website here.

Racing is scheduled to commence at 11:00 local time as the final ISAF Sailing World Cup regatta of the 2013-2014 series comes to a close. The schedule for the day is as follows:

Area South:
11:00 - Men’s 470
