Sail-World.com : Rough weather delays start of Auckland Fiji Race

Rough weather delays start of Auckland Fiji Race

'RNZYS Burgee'    RNZYS Media©
The Musket Cove Race Committee and Commodore of the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron have today delayed the start of the 2011 NZL International Yachting Trust Auckland to Musket Cove Ocean Race by 24 hours.

With consistent nor’east winds of 40 knots on the start line and a steady 50 knots at Tutakaka, Ross Masters, Commodore of the RNZYS in conjunction with Simon Griffiths, Lieutenant Commander of HMNZS Wellington agreed the only decision to be made was to delay the start by 24 hours.

Emirates Team New Zealand, who announced yesterday they were no longer starting the race because of the prospect of headwinds - which did not suit their testing program for the Volvo Ocean race, endorsed this decision. Grant Dalton commented 'The forecast is such that the RNZYS has taken the safety of the fleet as its primary responsibility and has totally made the correct judgement.'

The forecast for tomorrow is predicted to be a gentle 10 knots north east. The race will start from the Northern Leading Area at midday, Sunday 5th June 2011.
